Boo to You, Halloween Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I thought I would play with the "Boo to You" Halloween set today. There's only a few days till Halloween and after that all I can do with the set is make Monster Spray spray can covers.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Gray card stock.  This card is folded at the top and opens at the bottom.  On top of the base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  And on top of the black card stock is a 5" x 2" piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Monster Bash" 12" x 12" paper pack.  And on the bottom is a 5" x 2" piece of Granny Apple Green card stock that was textured using the "Hammered" embossing folder.  Such a fun looking folder.  I think it could pass for alligator skin too! I taped the DSP and green card stock in place and then I added the ribbon. I taped the ends around the backside and I secured them with some scotch tape.  Then I took a small piece of ribbon and slipped it under the long ribbon and I tied a bow. I trimmed the ends and the bow was done.  This type of bow is nice because you can slide it across your strip of ribbon and make sure you get it exactly where you want it.

I stamped the zombie and colored him in using Blends Pens.  I used the light and dark Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Smoky Slate and just the light Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue pens.

I die cut the zombie image using the "Stitched Square" die. I die cut a Basic Black scalloped square and I taped the two together.  Then I set it in place on the card front using Dimensionals.  Then I stamped the words from the "Boo to You" set using black Memento ink.  I die cut them with a small circle die and I also die cut a small Basic Black scalloped circle for the layer. I taped the layers together and I set them in place using Dimensionals.

I like the card but I think the Zombie could use some Googly eyes.  I may add them later.  This was a very fun card to make.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
