Mixed Media Halloween Cards

Hello there! Riikka here to share a few ideas for Halloween cards with a mixed media twist using the new Canvas Corp “Haunt It” papers!


I love to layer and use different mediums in my crafts so these halloween cards are no exception. I loved the “Haunt It” sampler paper for it provided me with the perfect vocal points to the cards – no stamped images needed, just a pair of scissors! And the one 12×12″ paper goes a long way! I decided have all my cards connected to witches somehow so there’s the cauldron, the broom, the hat and of course the flying witch, too.


I used different Tattered Angels products in the cards as well as black and white gesso. The stencils are by The Crafter’s Workshop. I kept my color scheme “Halloween” so there’s black, white, orange and yellow. The black gesso provides a dark background for two of the cards, one is stamped and the fourth has a misted pattern in there. Even though the papers have a pattern of their own, you can still customize it with a imprint of your own.



For the paper layers I mixed in some regular Canvas Cop papers as the color schemes match. You can find the candy corn yellow in the papers as well as many black and white designs. These cards are easy and quick to make and everyone is unique! Even though the cards have similar construction the mixed media touches bring something personal on each one. So, “witch” one is your favorite?
