Halloween Papers: The Raven

But the Raven still beguiling all my fancy into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird, and bust and door;
Then upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking “Nevermore.” The Raven by: Edgar Allan Poe

The Raven…a perfect backdrop to any Halloween project!

In our Kraft Halloween paper line, we have included a script 12″ x 12″cardstock with the words to The Raven poem by Edgar Allan Poe.  It compliments well with the silhouettes of the ravens patterned paper.

I will be showing the details for this Velvet Raven album this week.  It is on display at Signed Sealed Delivered store in Rogers, Arkansas {here is the link to their Facebook Page}.

This album cover was made using Canvas Corp Velvet Fabricpage {12″x12″} attached to a chipboard for stability.  It was then attached to a 12″x12″ Chunky Stretched Velvet that is turned around so the inside is like a shadow box.  {I will be showing more pictures throughout this week!}

The Kraft C-flute paper was torn and inked with black ink for more of a “scary” worn look.

Here is the Kraft Halloween paper line.  They go hand and hand with our Kraft basic patterned paper lines {stripes, mini dots and etc.}.

Products Used:
Canvas Corp:  Chunky Stretched Velvet 12″x12″
Velvet Fabricpage 12″x12″
The Raven and raven silhouette patterned paper
Other:  ribbon, ink, embellishment
