Enjoy making the Haunted House Trick-or-Treat Card in traditional Orange and Black.  I wanted a silhouette design, which is a snap with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits™ Dies.

There is no house image in the set of dies, so I used the house image in the Halloween Scenes Stamp Set.  I didn’t want to fussy cut the image, so I stamped it with the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad on Pumpkin Pie Card Stock.

My first thought was to stamp the images on Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, but it didn’t work.  I tested the Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad and the Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad along with the Memento Pad, but neither of them worked, either.  Maybe a really juicy ink pad would work.  Really juicy… I’m talking so juicy that you have to let the pad dry out before you can use it for other projects!

So instead, the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper became a background layer.  Be sure to use Fast Fuse Adhesive on the back of your matting layer to get it to stick to the Glimmer Paper.  I am too impatient to wait for the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to dry, but that would also work to keep layers together.  Just be sure to let it dry thoroughly and use a light hand or your paper will warp.

When using the Edgelits™, if your Cutting Pads are warped, you will need to run the dies through the Big Shot™ a couple of times.  Otherwise, just replace the Cutting Pads.  I tend to replace the most-warped pad (usually the cutting side) with a new one for the top layer, then use the less warped pad (usually the top layer) for the cutting side.
