Boo to You, Monster Bash, Everything Festive, Halloween Card 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I have been having a LOT of fun with the "Boo to You" set. I love these kid friendly monsters.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that are two pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Monster Bash" 12" x 12" pack. I cut them 5-1/4" x 2-1/4" each.  I could have gotten by with cutting them at 2-1/8" but I wasn't sure where I was going with the dividing of the center line.  I taped those two pieces in place using snail tape.

Next I added a 1/4" x 5-1/4" strip of Basic Black card stock.  You can use ribbon but I had the card stock sitting by my cutter so I went with it.  I glued that strip in place.

I used my 1-1/4" square punch and punched out 3 characters from the "Monster Bash" DSP.  I taped them to  1-3/8" Basic Black squares.  I taped those squares in place on the bottom part of the card.

I stamped the monster from the "Boo to You" set.  I colored him in using Blends Pens. I used both light and dark Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Smoky Slate and light only on the Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight.  I die cut him with the largest stitched oval and I die cut a Basic Black scalloped oval.  I taped the two layers together and I set him in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Everything Festive" set. I will be using that set more on my Christmas cards.  There's LOTS of fun words in that set and for other holidays.  I colored in the spider web using the light Smoky Slate Blends Pen.  I die cut it with an oval die and I also die cut a Basic Black scalloped oval for the back layer. I taped the two together and set them in place on the card using Dimensionals on the left side and snail tape on the right.  And that was it. 

I thought it was a very fun and simple card to make.  I LOVE those characters at the bottom but you can't see them very well.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
