Hostess Monday by Shirley

Hi! DT Shirley here, sharing how I made this cute little Halloween rocker card.


All DD files used:Teddy Zipperz, Ghoulish Sentiment Set, and Rocker Card SVG cut file.

Ghoulish sentiments set
Teddy Zipperz

  Rocker Card SVG Cut file
Papers & Cardstock: "Spooky Delight Stack" by DCWV, "Glitter Paper" by COLORBOK

Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils

Acc./Embellishments: 4 small black rhinestones, foam tape, glue runner , glue


     I made my rocker card over-sized with the base 7 inches in diameter. I made the wavy trim slightly smaller. I folded the card base and wavy circle in half, centered the wavy piece over the base and glued them together.

The circle mat and decorative mat were enlarged to 5 inches. (I used a Halloween mat, but the included mat will work just as well.)
The white decorative circle was glued on top of the black circle. Since it's hard to glue together glitter cardstock, I used glue runner and lots of glue, then paper clipped the layers together until they dried.

Once dry, I centered this piece over the curved area of the base, centering it from behind, as shown.

The image is 3 1/2 inches tall and was colored with Prismacolor markers. The image was attached with foam tape. The color palette can be found here.

The sentiment is 1 by 2 3/8 inches and is double matted with orange and black glitter paper, and is attached with foam tape to the bottom of the card base.

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial. Happy crafting!
