A few Echo Park projects to share this week following my first post this week as their Fresh Face Designer. Echo Park releases both paper and digital collections and I have used a combination of the two in a couple of the projects I have created using their Apothecary Collection. Here is the first…
Halloween Countdown Card
This square tri-fold card is ideal for showing off these fabulous papers.
In order to create this card you first need to cut your base cardstock to size and make the scores/folds as shown below.
NOTE: Whenever I attempt a project like this for the first time – I always make it with scrap card, paper or an old cereal box so I can understand, play with the dimensions and mark it without cutting into my lovely papers.
You then simple decorate the panels how you like. For the front cover I have covered this little chipboard owl from Scrapware with patterned papers from the collection and also added a small painted branch (which is a Kaisercraft flourish) and simple organza ribbon tie.
The middle panel for the card was created using some digital files from the Apothecary Collection and embellished with stickers from the Element Stickers sheet.
I have many more ideas to share using this fabulous collection so stay tuned!
Post a comment if you have any questions.
I am linking up this project to these websites here.
I LOVE this card! It looks like lots of work, but totally worth it! I adore that little owl with the type accross his belly. Great touch! 🙂
Lowri, you rocked it. I love the paper combo on the front of your card. Congrats, Miss Fresh Face!

That card is perfect for Halloween! Absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for sharing. Anyways, can I include your awesome card in my collection of printing samples? If that's OK with you.
Hi Marion – thanks for the compliment!
Unfortunately I do not allow my work to be used for commerical purposes. You are however welcome to make your own card using the template provided on my blog post and use that.
Brilliant, thank you
Outrageous easy decorating…that's my idea of sharing the good stuff!!!!
