Itty Bitty Wishes, Monster Bash, September 2019 Paper Pumpkin, Halloween Card

Today I played with the September 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit (again).  I promise I won't play with it again for a few days.

I do like my card. I have always loved this layout and have had a lot of fun making cards using it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  This card is folded on the left and opens on the right.

On top of that is a 3-1/2" x 4-5/8" piece of Sahara Sand. 

I cut a 2-7/8" x 4" piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the" Monster Bash" 12" x 12" package.  And I cut a 3" x 4-1/8" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock for the layer behind it.   I added a small amount of tape in the upper center of the two pieces.  I lined up the edges. I took a 1-1/4" circle punch and I dropped the piece as far as I could go into the punch and I lined up the sides equally and I punched out both pieces at the same time.  Then I took the DSP piece and a piece of copier paper or you can use some scrap card stock and I punched the 1-3/8" circle.  You really need to have something behind the DSP or it will rip and not cut nice.  You will NOT be happy with the results if you don't have something behind the DSP circle.  Tape the DSP to the Pumpkin Pie piece.

Then I tied a ribbon around the two layers.  

I took a 2-1/2" x 1-2/1" piece of Whisper White and taped it on top of the Sahara Sand piece where the skeleton will be going. I set the skeleton on top of the Whisper White piece and I gently set the circle layers on top to see where the skeleton will go.  I taped the skeleton in place.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Wishes".  I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I punched them with the Modern Label punch and I set them in place using Dimensionals.  

I set the Pumpkin Pie layered piece in place using Dimensionals. 

I punched out three bats from the "Every Season Punch Pack" using a scrap piece of Basic Black card stock.  I set the bats in place using a dot of glue. Or a glue dot will work too!

And for the final touch I colored three gold sequins using the Cajun Craze Blends Pen and set them in place on the card to give it a little bit of shine and sparkle.

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White on the inside and the card was done.

Like I said, I REALLY like this layout and i think this card is adorable.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
