Halloween Cauldron (NEW RELEASE)

Good morning friends

I have had this card done since July and planned on sharing it closer to Halloween. But Karen Burniston's new Flower Pot Pop Stand is SO popular, I thought it would be fun to share another idea using it.

I'm also trying to use some older products, so pulled out some Halloween stickers and REALLY old rub-ons for this card.


That Spooky branch is just SO fun!


It is amazing how nicely the Flower Pot Pop-Stand folds completely flat for mailing. Below you can see the card opening ...



I had the idea to make the Flower Pot portion into a Cauldron and it worked out great! I kept this one fairly simple, with bubbles (from the Bath Tub Pop-Stand & clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Pop-Up)  and steam (from the Cup Pop Stand) but there are all kinds of things you can add into the Cauldron to make it spooky and fun.


The new Halloween Scene Graveyard is great and if you follow my blog at all you will remember that I like to add the Character eyes to various cards. Of course for Halloween they are PERFECT! I cut them from white card stock backed with double sided adhesive, which makes them easy peasy to adhere.


Below you can see the rub-ons I added, as well as bats from the Halloween Scene die set.


The spoon was cut twice, so I could have a double sided spoon. A witch needs a good sized spoon for stirring her Cauldron, right?


Note, I trimmed the flap's of the Flower Pot around the edges of the bubbles, but they could be left as is.
