Orange and Black - Your Choice!

This week at Make My Monday our challenge to you is enter a project which is Orange and Black, it need not be a Halloween card, it can be anything you like, as long as it has the colours of our choice.
I think this card looks more red, but honest it is mainly orange and black. I need to make a number of such cards for my younger grandsons and of course the more creepy the better for the boys. I enjoy making shutter cards, they are really simple to make, it's the time consuming of measuring for all the sections that's a drag. I know every time I make one I say I must make a template. There are lots of samples of how to make on U tube if your interested. the plastic skeleton is from a pack of 4 from £ -land. All the stamps I used are from Tandastamps. I am looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you have made for the theme. I greatly enjoyed the inchies cards last week, many fabulous creations, it is always a difficult choice to choose the Top 3. Well done to everyone.


  1. Hi Cazro: Your grandson will love this card!The skeleton really adds to the theme. As you say, for boys, the creepier the better!
    I like all the different halloween stamps on each panel too.
