The Eyes Have It Spooky Halloween Card - Visit

I called my spooky eyes Hallowe’en Card “The Eyes Have It” because I just love the spooky eyes floating by themselves in any number of designs.  The itty bitty spiders are just coincidental and put there to make sure you know it’s Hallowe’en.

Of course, the Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Basic Gray and Whisper White combination is also a giveaway.  How fun is it to have a Monochromatic Color Scheme that’s one color and three Neutrals?

The Whisper White Medium Envelope is easy to stamp with the eyes in a corner of the front and a corner of the flap.  I surrounded the eyes with spiders to coordinate with the inside.  I didn’t make an envelope from the Hallowe’en Night Designer Series Paper because I’d used up both sheets of that pattern and hadn’t received my new shipment yet.  It’s so great to have that versatility!

The layered jar frame on the card front is also easy to make.  Here’s what I do:

  1. Cut the Hallowe’en Night piece for the top layer at 5” x 3-3/4”.
  2. Center on the Basic Black piece and adhere with removable tape. Washi Tape will work for this.
  3. Place the jar die where you want it on top of the layer. Cut both pieces together, patterned piece on top.
  4. Separate the two pieces and snip the border showing on the patterned piece.
  5. Reattach the patterned piece to the Basic Black piece with permanent adhesive this time.
  6. There is your frame!

Adhere a 5” x 3-3/4” piece of Whisper White to the back of the jar frame layer.  Stamp your spooky eyes inside.  Add spiders if you wish.  Shhh—don’t tell anyone!  I stamped the spiders to hide a tiny smear.  This will be our spooky eyes secret!
