Papers and Pixels Online Magazine - A Tilda Halloween Invitation

It's time for another issue of the online magazine Papers and Pixels and I had the honor of having another of my pieces used in an article. This time it is for a wonderful editorial about the Scor-Pal and so it was time to get scoring and creasing again!
I used the super tutorial to help make a Criss Cross Card that I turned into a Halloween invitation.
I also made an envelope to match.
I highly recommend this magazine, it has tons of freebies linked with each edition, fabulous tutorials and just an all round great read!

Card Recipe:
Images - Bat Tilda , Pirate Sign, Mini Tilda with Spider Web and Mini Vampire Edwin
Paper - BOOville Digital Papers by Raspberry Road
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Border Punches - Graveyard and Drippy Goo Martha Stewart
Grass Die - Cheery Lynn Designs
Sentiment – Studio G
Twine – The Twinery
Font – Burton's Nightmare
Medium – Copic Markers

I added a grass die cut border on to the bottom first and then added the punched graveyard scene, I like the way the grass just pokes up behind like it's overgrown and just ready for a little scary fun!

I added mini eyelets to the sentiment and used twine to create a sign hanging from the spooky tree, I really love how all the elements work together in this one.

I printed the text in "Burton's Nightmare" font and added a couple of the mini Magnolia figures, gosh those things are cute if a little fiddly to color :)

I completed the project with a coordinating envelope and added both of the border punches for a neat finish.
Be sure to drop by Papers and Pixels to see it there and so see all the other fabulous things on offer.
