Boo to You, Kid Friendly Halloween Card, 2019

Still loving the "Boo to You" stamp set, I made another monster image card.  I LOVE this guy and he's so easy to color, he takes hardly any time at all.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Gorgeous Grape card stock.  The fold is on the left and it opens on the right.

On top of that I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock that I stamped the "Buffalo Plaid" image to using Gorgeous Grape ink.  I trimmed the piece to 4" x 5-1/4" after I stamped it because I knew I wasn't going to get it perfectly straight.  So off to the paper cutter I went and got my lines cut pretty close to perfect.  If I was not real thrilled with it, I could have taken the Gorgeous Grape marker and ran it along the edges of the piece and then the white parts wouldn't show as much.  But I was okay with the way it looked so I left it.

The top part was cut on the paper cutter.  You can read how to cut it here.  On that card the piece was more on the left and here it's more on the right.  It's on the right on this card because I taped the wrong side, but it's okay too because I like the look.  I did cut a Gorgeous Grape layer behind the Whisper White piece.

Next I stamped the monster from the "Boo to You" set using black Memento ink.  I colored him in using the Blends pens.  You can see what colors I used by clicking here.    I die cut him using the largest stitched circle die and then I die cut a Gorgeous Grape scalloped circle.  When I cut the scalloped circle I also cut the smaller scalloped circle from the center of this large scalloped circle.  I taped the circles together and set them in place using Dimenisonals.  

The words are from the "Boo to You" set and I stamped them using black Memento ink. I die cut them with a small circle die and taped it to the scalloped piece I had just cut.  I set the words in place using Dimenisonals. 

The bats are from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  The stamps are "Every Season Punch Pack" set.  They are SO cute.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  

It was a very fun card to make and he's SO darn cute too!
