Composition Book Cover

"Composition Book" Cover

This is swap for the internet group  Stamping, Swapping, Scrapping Democracy (SSSD).  We were to choose a Month and create a theme for that month.  Seven people signed for this swap. We were required to make seven identical covers.
I chose October and a Halloween Theme. 
Once completed, I mailed the seven duplicate covers to the hostess of the swap for distribution among the group members.    

Materials Used:
  • Cut a piece of black heavy card stock  6 1/2" by 8"
  • Cut a piece of orange Cardstock ( I use Bazzill) approx 5 1/2" X 6"
  • The middle of the orange card stock was cut out using a SizzixDie Bigx-Top Note
  • Do not throw the cutaway piece out.  It can be stamped or embellished for future  for card fronts.
  • Cut a piece of punchinella cut from corner to corner of the  base piece
  • Attach the punchinella to the card stock with a piece of double sided tape.
  • The main design ( the spooky house is a cuttlebug die)
  • White pigment ink was dragged over over the house image to give an eerie  effect.
  • The windows and moon where highlighted with gold pen
  • Attach the main design on the backside of the frame with the coloured design showing.
  • Attach the frame with the design to the card on top of the punchinella
  • Stamp a Halloween saying on a piece of orange card stock and attach it to a piece of black card stock.
  • Embellish as desired

A "composition book" cover is a particular style of notebook, pictured below.
