Patchwork Halloween Card {Nightmare Before Christmas Inspired}

'Tis the season when I go around quoting Nightmare Before Christmas.
What's wrong? I thought you *liked* frog's breath. - Sally

Welcome to Day 4 of our partnership with Rinea! I was inspired by Sally's patchwork dress and also the need to use up the scraps from the Halloween banner I created.

I trimmed the black card stock to create the card base and I simply started gluing down scraps from Pink & Main's Not Too Spooky paper pad. I took the scraps from Rinea's Haunted Variety Pack and the die to cut the word "happy" with its background on black card stock.

I then stamped the word Halloween using Pink & Main Curvy Girl Lower Alpha Pegz Stamps with Rinea's Ghost Ink on yet another scrap of foiled paper.

I couldn't find foam dots, so I used my Westcott's mini hot glue gun to make my own. I added the dots, allowed to cool and then add just a bit more glue to each dot and adhered the die cut to the front of the card.

I trimmed the "Halloween" at an angle on both ends and glued it down with a glue pen. I then added twine along with a very thin purple jute to the top of the card.

I finished off the card with round and star enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed my Sally Halloween card and thank you for visiting today. Please visit again tomorrow for the 5th and last day of our partnership with Rinea.

What a great use of your scraps! I love when you can make something awesome from leftovers. It's a great way to challenge yourself, create something wonderful, help the environment, and save money, too!

Love your cute card and ingenuity in creating it and the pop dots you needed! :)

Have a great weekend, Yolie!
