Cookie Cutter Halloween, Get Well Card, Swirly Scribbles

When I saw this card on Pinterest, I knew I just had to make it. I also had most of the "stuff" to make it too!  I did make a few changes but it's basically the same card.  The original, made by Laura-Lee, can be found here

This was a fun and easy card to make.  The original card used a lacy heart, I didn't have that die so I used the "Swirly Scribbles" die instead. I  think it worked just fine.  

I loved how she used the mummy from the "Cookie Cutter Halloween" set to make the injured person!  I never would have thought of that. Hopefully the one who is getting this card (someday) will not be that wrapped up, the poor soul. 

I used the "Pretty Paisleys" embossing folder for the oval textured center.  I bought it and hand never used it all season. So glad I got to use it at least once!!!

The original card looked like there was a layer of gold metallic paper behind the focal piece.  I did have the metallic papers but I didn't want to use them on the card, I didn't think it fit well with the look of the card.  There was no other gold on the card to bring the layer in and have it blend.  So, I used Pirouette Pink for the layer.  I also used Pirouette pink on the "Swirly Scribbles" piece too.  

I stamped and punched out the mummy.  I colored in the face with a marker and I sponged the edges with black Memento ink.  There's where the problem came in.  I touched the edges of the mummy and got ink on my thumb.  Then I picked up the white focal piece and got a dot of ink on it.  This is where the pearls came in to play. I had to cover the ink with something because I REALLY didn't want to make another focal layer, especially when I actually got the words straight!!! (A rare thing lately).  So I added a few more pearls around the card to make it look like it was meant to be!  And it worked!!

I really like how the card turned out and I just LOVE how the mummy was used on a get well card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
