Alternative September 2019 Paper Pumpkin Card, Itty Bitty Wishes, Halloween Card

Today I was still trying to figure out how to make cards with my September 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit and this is what I came up with.  I'm not thrilled with it but it's okay.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Smoky Slate card stock that was textured using the new "Stylish Scroll" embossing folder.  I also took a sponge dauber and the Smoky Slate ink pad and sponged over the top.  Then I took the Basic Black ink pad and sponged sporadically over the top.  I taped the piece in place on the card base.

I textured a 1-1/8" x 5" piece of Pumpkin Pie using the "Stylish Scroll" embossing folder.  The Basic Black layer behind it measures  1-1/4" x 5-1/8".  I taped the layers together and centered them in place on the card front.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Wishes" set. I stamped them on Whisper White card stock using black Memento ink.  I had tried to stamp them on the orange foiled edged pieces but I just couldn't get them straight so I did the next best thing and did a stamp, cut and tape.  That is the part of the card I personally don't like but it is what it is.  Those words were set in place using small Dimensionals on the areas that touch the Pumpkin Pie strip.

I punched a 1-7/8" circle from one of the polka dot boxes that came in the kit. I taped the round vellum circle from the kit to the center of it.  Then I affixed the skull spider web to the center of it all.  I set that piece in lace on the card front using small Dimensionals on the left and right side of the circle.  

I punched out three bats from Basic Black card stock from the new "Every Season Punch Pack".  They are so tiny and too darn cute!!!  I set them in place with the small black Dimensionals that came with the kit.

And I added two skeletons from the kit. I set them in place with Dimensionals.  I did add some snail to their feet where it touched a word piece. 

For the final piece, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card and it was done! 

It's okay but I have an idea for a better one for maybe tomorrow or the next day.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
