Message in a Bottle Halloween Card

Message in a Bottle by Stampin' Up! 


My card for you today is the first Halloween Card for 2017.

I've started designing for my 12 Weeks of Halloween and today I'm sharing a super simple card. 

I used the Message in a Bottle Stamp Set for the main image (ship) and Glamper Greetings Stamp Set for the greeting.  

After I stamped the image with Memento Ink I cut it out with the 2" Circle Punch and then added it to a Basic Black starburst... cut out with the Starburst Punch

The base of the card is 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 and I LOVE making cards this size!!  

I'm not sure if you can see it but I embossed the Whisper White layer with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.   You can find all the details about this card in the Inspiration Sheet posted below.



  • Basic Black: 8-1/2 x 4-1/4, score at 4-1/4 Whisper White: 4 x 4
  • Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper: 4 x 2 Basic Black: Starburst Punch
  • Whisper White: 2" Circle, 3/8 strip for greeting

Here's the video tutorial....

    Angie, this card is so stinkin’ cute it will definitely be a project that I do with my sidekick who is now taller than me.

    How fun! I have been making Halloween and Christmas charity cards so any new ideas are appreciated before I mail them. I had forgotten about that paper! Also, I was wondering about the starburst punch and now I know. Thanks Angie.

    I never think to make a smaller square card. And I hardly ever use black and white for a card. This card is so cute! Guess I know what my next card will be.

    This is a very cute card. One usually does not see cards done in b&w and this idea is great. A nice spin on Halloween not using witches…that i try to avoid when that day comes around…so i appreciate it. Love the card alot. You also do the greatest videos.
    Thank you for shareing.

    I don’t usually send Halloween cards to anyone but my young niece, but I may have to rethink that. You added lots of nice touches to make it a “blue ribbon winner.”
