Vintage Witches United

For today's Retro Cafe Art Design Team piece, I decided to make a tiny banner of removable ATCs. I love decorating for Halloween and a banner is always a great thing to hang across the corner of a mirror. I promise I will share some decorating photos later next month, you will just have to wait! LOL.

I found this absolutely wonder black patterned pack of playing cards and knew they would make great ATC's bases. This one dollar pack gives me 52 different ATCs bases!The images are from the Retro Cafe Art Vintage Halloweensheet. This sheet has lots of pretty witches and such, perfect for small projects. I added tiny black Coffee Break Designs Halloween cut outs. Can you find the spiderweb, spider, owl, cat, bats and little hat? The little cards were strung on a ribbon with circle paper clips that I used a Sharpie to color orange. The trick or treat was a glitter sign I already had. I can't wait for Halloween to hang my little banner.

Hope you will find a trick or maybe a treat this week.
sincerely, gerri

  13. These are so amazing.. I just love these..

  14. So this is what you're up to where you are, back in "the wilds of New Jersey"! I LOVE this banner--and had already been thinking along the same lines, but with a different materials list. of course.
    Your fetching design is just what I needed to get in the mood. Now I really will have to get on it and try something a bit different for this year's decor!
    Just one thing--wherever were you able to pick up that pretty pack of cards? I'd give $5 for a pack like that, and you've only paid $1! Wish we could "cut a deal" so to speak. ;)

  15. I do adore banners and LOVE Halloween projects! Oh I am so inspired by this one...
