Today I have a "treat" for my MDS customers. I have two MDS Halloween hybrid cards and a video tutorial for a MDS hybrid bottle lable just in time for your Halloween festivities. I typically don't really get into Halloween too much. Probably because my parents both worked full-time and we were lucky to get the Christmas tree up (and back down) at our house...most other holidays basically went unnoticed. I do have a few fun memories of trick-or-treating in the neighborhood where we lived. Of course my candy stash mysteriously disappeared after a few weeks...probably because I ate it. (That would explain all the cavaties growing up.)
The first project I am sharing today is this fun bottle label that I created in My Digital Studio. I created a video tutorial (above) with step-by-step instructions for the label. I purchased the empty bottle at a nationwide home dec. retail store and filled it with grape flavored drink mix. In the video I promised to give the dimensions of the layers. Scroll to the end of this post for that information. I actually tried making this label in several layers, but the cardstock kept pulling up from the bottle. That's where creating everything in one simple label comes in very handy.
As a bonus, I created two super easy Halloween cards using MDS and the new Night Owl Digital Kit download. The first card, shown to the right, uses a portion of digital DSP from the Night Owl Digital Kit download ($7.95) framed with Pumpkin Pie. I cut it out and layered it on a Basic Black CS base that was layered with another DSP from the same digital download.
It is difficult to see, but for the raven's eye, I colored it in with a pumpkin pie marker and added a dab of Crystal Effects to give it a more realistic effect. I wanted these cards to be super easy to make and mail, so I refrained from using any embellishments.
For my second card I used a portion of page #7 from the Night Owl Digital Kit and framed it with Concord Grape. This card is super simple to make. I trimmed out the pieces and layered it on another piece of digital DSP and attached it to a Basic Black card base.
