Halloween is sneaking up on us and will arrive before we know it…..so it’s best to be prepared and get those decorations done.
It’s my favorite time of year – Honestly – I think Halloween all year long. When I see a new kit or file, my first thought is: Can this be Halloweenified?
The files I’m using for the project I’m about to show you, could!
Imagine Morticia Adams in the kitchen, baking a Birthday cake. Wouldn’t be just any normal cake now, would it? Nahhhh I imagine it something like this:
A moldy cake with bloody filling topped with spiderwebs and naturally an axe to chop it up into fitting pieces. Served on a creepy stand with blood dripping down over the edge.
I know I have a vivid imagination, but I couldn’t help myself (again)
I used several Simply Crafty SVGs files for this one – namely the Cake Slice Box (downsized by 50%) , the Bloody Hatchet (downsized by 25%) and the all new Cake Plate/Display Stand (Made a bit bigger to fit the scale)
I used AC Cardstock in Black, Rouge, Chocolate, Melon and Leaf along with patterned paper from Authentique’s “Tricky” Collection and some grey Bling Bazzill Cardstock.
I also used a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix to emboss the panels on the foot of the stand.
The blood splatter on the stand is a design from the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #97008) by Sophie Gallo.
The cake slices (I made 8 for a whole cake) opens up so you can put some treats inside. I was thinking about using this as place cards, where people just find their own name and sit where ever they want to 😉
All of this is so easy to make and decorate – just let your imagination run wild!
That was what I wanted to share with you today – stay tuned for more creepy, bloody Halloween decor as we get closer and closer to the scary but awesome Halloween.
