I loved the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week! I just received a new stamp and knew it would be perfect for my card.
I absolutely LOVE to make Halloween cards! I like the funny ones that make me think of make believe and children having FUN! I have so many Grands to send cards to, so one of them will enjoy this funny card.
My base card is white. I added a stitched rectangle panel of polka dots from the K & Company Halloween paper pack. I then cut an orange frame from the same pack. I cut an extra small orange stitched rectangle to mount behind the small white rectangle. I also added a purple banner from the paper pack cut on the ends with snips to form a banner. The purple paper has little stars on it. It looks like night time.
I ordered this Halloween Monster from Paper Wishes. It fit perfectly on my stitched white rectangle die cut. I colored it with Copic Markers and paper pieced the dress with one of the matching patterns in the K & Company Paper Pack. I re stamped the pumpkin and colored it with Copics and then I covered the pumpkin candy holder and the shoes with Glossy Accents. I used a black gel pen to go over the stitching and facial features. I also added a white dot in the eyes with a white gel pen.
The sentiment was stamped on white with black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the Stampin' Up Window punch to cut it out. Three white enamel dots were added to finish the card.
I hope you enjoyed my card and it made you smile. Please leave a comment if you have time. I love to hear from you!
Wishing you a very special weekend!
