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

Happy Halloween to you!

I have loved this layout since the first time I saw it several years back.  I think it's a fun and super easy one to work with.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Pumpkin Pie card stock.  On top of that is a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Basic Black card stock.  And on top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4"piece of Whisper White card stock.  

Then I cut the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Monster Bash" 12" x 12" pack.  It measures 4  x 5-1/4". I cut a 1-3/4" slit in the center of the 5-1/4" side.  I took my stylus and a rule and lined up the end of the slit to the tip of the corner. I repeated this for the other corner.  Then I folded the corners back and taped the tips down.  Then I taped the DSP to the Whisper White piece.  

I stamped the cute wolf from the "Boo to You" set using black Memento ink.  I colored him in using the Blends pens. I used both light and dark for the fur, the jacket, the face and the pants.  I used Soft Suedes for the fur. Highland Heathers for the jacket. Pumpkin Pies for the pants and Petal Pinks for the face.  

I cut him out using the oval Stitched die.  Then I die cut a scalloped oval for the layer.  I taped the two ovals together and set them in place on the card using Dimensionals.  But before I set him in place I set him on the card front so I know where the words would go.  The words are from the same set and I used black Memento ink to stamp them.  Then I set the ovals in place and that was it.

This was a fun and super easy card to make.  Now I'm off to get the rest of the things I need to get done before the trick or treaters start coming.  I think there should be a set time for this.  Something like 5:30 to 8:30.  No one needs to be out before then.  And with daylight savings, it's still light at 5:30.  It used to be changed in late October and now it's moved to November.  I wish they would just remove it completely.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today and have a fun and safe Halloween,
