Halloween doesn’t have to always be about scary things. Sometimes it can give you the feel of the holiday and be totally adorable at the same time. Kind of like a few sweet children all dressed up singing “Trick-or-Treat” at your door. Just too cute.
The project began with a sheet of the Go Wild DSP stack. I knew I wanted to sponge it up with a faded look so I looked for patterns that had more white than black. This pattern was perfect. I swirled and swirled until it looked the way I wanted and then sponged around the edges some more. No layering, just adhered it straight to the card base.
These Larger Than Life Alphabet & Numbers stamps really make me happy. The only thing that would make me happier is having coordinating framelits. But, that is not the case. You guessed it, I actually did fussy cutting, twice! Once for the letters and once again when I layered them up on more paper. Where is my brain? It had to be done, so I suffered. My least favorite crafty task next to cleaning up.
I touch of Dotted Lace Trim added such a soft touch. Left the bow off and just did a simple knot. I made some little eyes using the 1/2″ circle punch, punched circles using the 1/4″ circle hand held punch, and centered them with the largest size of basic rhinestones. I sponged those pumpkin pie eyes and raised them up on dimensionals. I also raised up my word ‘boo’ with dimensionals, but used a double stack on the center ‘o’ to make it stand out even more. End result, adorable Halloween card, just adorable.
Have a creative day!
