Boo to You, Children Kid Friendly Halloween Card from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I just can't seem to get enough of this fun "Boo to You" Halloween card.  I love this whole set, it's SO kid friendly.  I did purchase the colored googly eyes and I think this guy could use some.  I found this card on Pinterest but I didn't like the way it opened, so I just made it open like a regular card. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla.  This card is folded on the left and opens on the right.  

I cut a 2-1/2" x 5-1/8" piece of the "Monster Bash" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  And I cut a Basic Black layer at 2-3/8" x 5-1/4". I taped those two layers together and then I taped them to the left side of the card.

Then I cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock at 1-1/8" x 5-1/8" and I textured it using the new "Stylish Scroll" embossing folder.  At the same time I embossed a 1-7/8" x 4-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I set that piece aside.  I cut a 1-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock and taped the textured Pumpkin Pie strip to it.  And I taped that strip to the right side of the card.  

I punched out 6 little Basic Black bats from the "Every Season Punch Pack".  Aren't they cute?  I glued them in place on top of the Pumpkin Pie strip.

I cut a 2" x 4-3/8" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock and a 2-1/8" x 4-1/2" piece of Basic Black card stock.  I taped those two pieces together and then I taped the embossed Very Vanilla piece to the top of that.  I set this panel in place on top of the card using Dimensionals.

I stamped the zombie from the "Boo to You" set using black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock. I used Whisper White card stock because I wanted his shirt to look white and not vanilla.  I colored him in using the following Blends Pens:  Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue.  I used both light and dark except for the Balmy Blue, I just used the light one.  I fussy cut the zombie out and I set him in place on the panel using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Boo to You" set and I stamped them on Very Vanilla card stock using black Memento ink.  I die cut them with a "Stitched Circle" die and I added a Basic Black scalloped circle for the layer. I set the words in place using Dimensionals.  

I did add the googly eyes and I kind of regret it, I think it looks better without them.  But I think I would color in the eyes using a light pink marker or Blends pen. But other than that, I really like how it turned out.  This set is so darn cute!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
