Some spooky samples .........

Rare Oddities Cards Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Whop Whop its Saturday.  I'm home after a lovely time away and have started a major sort out of the house. Or maybe a late spring clean lol!!  Anyway I came across these samples made for one of my C & C shows and thought I"d share them with you.  I love all things Halloween and these cards and tag were made from the Rare Oddities collection.  Some of the  papers from that collection will definitely go with the newly re released Halloween in Wonderland papers too as they are both from the Darks colour palette.  Thought I might make a little something that pulls them both together so watch this space ............. 
I cut the centre out of one of the frames from a small cut apart and added a raised back to give the tag some dimension and the appearance that the bottles were in a cabinet 
We all make these pop up cards but the fun is adding different elements to the carte bands .... G45 give us loads to chose from in their collections 
For the tall card I cut an arch out of the paisley paper (which will go well with the purple Hatter paper in the Halloween n Wonderland Collection) added a black arched frame and then placed the scull in the jar behind it . A ribbon and metal lock finished off the front of this one along with the stamped hand and message.  Loved the stamps that went with the collection.  
Hope you liked them :-)
