Olivia and Alma's Halloween cards

Good morning friends

Our Granddaughter Olivia loves pink and purple, so I used those colours for her Halloween card. The card base is an older Karen Burniston die that is no longer in production -- the Oval Pull Card. Because I knew I wanted to add that Spook-tacular! banner, I chose not to cut the notches that hold the card closed until the sides are pulled.

I picked up this Simon Says Stamp set last year - it's so cute! I love that dangling spider stamp too.

Here is a peek at the inside:

I added the dangling spider stamp a few more times.

Below is the card I made for Alma. She will be 11 months old this Halloween and she will love having a card to hold, wave around and holler at. She is happily loud, that one. And once she is done waving it around and hollering, she will likely want to eat it. So she didn't get an Action Wobble, everything is glued down flat except the little ghost and I used enough foam tap to hold it securely until Alma's parents or brother realize she is trying to eat the card and take it away. Ha.
