I apologise to those I haven't yet visited, I will do my utmost to get round to you all. Time!!!
I did say simple card, didn't I!
How many of you use your cutting dies to their full advantage? I know I don't. Simple and quick shaped cards can be achieved by running a folding piece of card through your cutting machine with the edge of the die overhanging the folded edge so that the hinge is not lost.
The smaller shapes in those nesting sets can then be used to co-ordinate the matting. For more examples - go see the cards made by the rest of the DD DT.
I used the Gargoyle Corner Set and the Happy Helloween sentiment both, of course, from Delicious Doodles. After printing and cutting out, loads of distress ink in shades of yellow through to orange were applied. Some tiny gems were adhered to the eyes of the Gargoyles and the central pumpkin.
That's about it people. Simple and quick.
