Quick & Easy Halloween Card with Skeletons Dance Stamp Set (Fun Stampers Journey)

Halloween is my most favorite holiday, so I couldn't let it creep up on me without hanging out a bit more with my Halloween stamps.

I think the Skeletons Dance Stamp Set with the matching Skeletons Dance Die Set has moved to the top of my list as my ALL.TIME.FAVORITE Halloween stamp & die combo. I mean, come on.....who doesn't love a little black & white graphic combo! And these skeletons are PERFECT for that!

Especially when they are heat embossed with White Embossing Powder on Black Licorice Cardstock using the Journey Heat Gun--they just WOW the eyes on every project!

I have a another one to share with you soon, but until then, here's a close up of this one and then down below I'm sharing the nitty gritty on how to put it together step-by-step.

Making this project was super's how:

1. Fold 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Black Licorice Cardstock in half to form card base.
2. Trim 3 3/4" x 5" River Stone Cardstock panel.
3. Trim 3/4" x 5" Citrus Cooler Cardstock; affix Silver Sparkle Tape to top edge and cut right end at 45 degree angle.
4. Affix Citrus Cooler Cardstock strip to bottom edge of River Stone Cardstock panel; pop panel up on card base.
5. Die-cut bat from River Stone Cardstock using 'bat' from Spooksville Die Set; pop up in upper right hand corner of card front.
6. Stamp "Skeletons will gladly dance, if you give them half a chance!" sentiment on Whip Cream Cardstock using Black Licorice Ink; die-cut around sentiment using Skeletons Dance Die Set. Pop-up sentiment on card front.
7. Die-cut stitched circle from Journey Vellum using Circle Around Die Set.
8. Die-cut circle from Haystack Cardstock using Circle Around Die Set; pop-up over Journey Vellum die-cut circle. Affix to card front in upper left hand corner.
9. Stamp 'skeletons' on Black Licorice Cardstock using Clear Pigment Ink, sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat set using Journey Heat Gun. Die-cut using Skeletons Dance Die Set.
10. Flick with Silver Silk and Citrus Cooler Silk.
11. Affix Sweet Candy Drops.
