Halloween cards are lots of fun to create and deliver to those special witches in your life!  I decided to use my Cameo to cut two basic card shapes and pull together some fun "witchy" stamps and other embellies to inspire you to design a card for someone you cherish.  
Remember the key to cards (from my POV) is using some interesting elements starting with the paper.  The paper I grabbed was from a Halloween pack I found at JoAnn's. It was just the right thickness to easily cut with the Cameo and sturdy enough to efficiently stand up for display. 
After all isn't the whole point to our paper crafting the joy of having one's cards on display (not tucked in a drawer)? Here's a few of my efforts:

The focal point on this side step card is a Dyan Reaveley stamp with some handmade embellies like the flower, the witchy hat, twine, Stickles, and LoveBug Creations Halloween Grunge ribbon.

A blog hop card fest wouldn't be complete for me without using a Julie Nutting paper doll stamp plus some more embellies for this easel center step card.

I am in love with the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamp set and had to incorporate a crazy bird witch for this side step card.  Tim Holtz also has another set called Crazy Little Things (witch hat, pumpkin, broom) that can also be stamped for projects.  The skull is a Dyan Reaveley stamp.

My last sample is for a special little witch - kids love owls so this easel center step card focuses on the little witch and her owl friends.  This stamp set was cheap but engaging. Tie a piece of rumple ribbon around the center and add a cute sentiment for some Halloween fun!

 Up next is CHRISTINA

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:
