The images below show a card I made for my older sister who was born on Halloween. The colors are not as vibrant as in the original; after scanning, I did some color adjustment in PSP which helped but still not what I wanted. I do cards often but this is the first time I used PaintShopPro to do the work. The card base used three different papers, a sign, cake, and tree that I found just looking for Halloween ideas. I found some witch feet that I used on the top of the cake, adding a ribbon between the bottom and mid layer. I did add some shadows.
The words, grass, and some of the pumpkins were fussy cut and added on top of the originals with spacers behind. After doing the card base I made 9 tags which I scanned all on one page to give you an idea.  Again the tags look much better in real life.  Finally, to explain it I wrote a poem for her.  It just folds over the card which was mailed this afternoon.  I’m so excited.  I just discovered we can click on pictures and they enlarge to see them better.  Also, I didn’t mention that the top opens and the tags are inside the folded cardstock with the threads hanging out.
