A Holiday Home Birthday

Every since I have known him, my son-in-law Tony has loved Halloween.  All things zombie, jack-o-lanterns and creepy.  His favorite Disney movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas, a very Halloween-ish movie, despite it’s name.  I thought this year for his birthday today I would make him a Halloween Birthday card.  I know, it’s a ‘Birthoween’ card!!Stampin Up Birthday Halloween Holiday Home

So, how’d I do?  I pulled out the Holiday Home stamp and framelit bundle.  I truly love this set.  I’ve gotten so much use out of it already and I’m sure I’ve got some more up my sleeve.  The houses were stamped with versamark on basic black cardstock then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I used Tangelo Twist for the orange accents and background.  The moon was punched with a 1 3/8 circle punch from basic gray then sponged with a little memento tuxedo black ink around the edges.

For the Happy Birthday sentiment I used the Endless Birthday Wishes.  Another must have set.  It’s photopolymer so it was easy to make sure I stamped it in exactly the right place for each word.
