Monster Bash, Boo to You, To Every Season, Halloween Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Yup, I created this card all on my own!  Shocker, huh?  LOL  Sometimes I can leave Pinterest and figure out a card on my own.  Sometimes!!!

To make this card you need a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  This card is folded on the left and opens on the right.

On top of the card base I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Highland Heather. And on top of the Highland Heather I taped a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Monster Bash" 12" x 12" paper pack.  

I used one of the dies from the "Frosted Frames" pack.  I die cut it in Basic Black card stock and I trimmed off the snowflakes.  We do NOT want snow here on Halloween.  We did have a blizzard on Halloween in 1991. Some trick or treaters living nearby braved the night.  I don't recall if our son went out or not.  We probably just promised him all the candy that was left!!  Okay, back to the frame.  I took the other die that came in the set that cut out the inside piece.  I took that inside piece and cut a piece of Whisper White that was just a hair bigger so it could be taped to the back of the frame.  

I set the Whisper White piece in my Stamparatus and I stamped the words from the "To Every Season" set.  Aren't they fun looking words?  I stamped them higher on the piece because I wanted to have room to put part of the monster on it.  I taped the Whisper White piece to the back of the frame and I set the frame in place using Dimensionals.

I stamped the monster from the "Boo to You" set. I colored him in using my Blends Pens. I used the light and dark Highland Heather for the body. I used Daffodil Delight for the toenails, teeth and dots in the horns. I used the light Granny Apple Green pen for the horns and the eyes.  And that's it, just three colors.  Cute, isn't he?  I set him in place on the card with Dimensionals on the bottom and snail tape on the upper part.  I gave him some green googly eyes from the "Assorted Googly Eyes" pack.  

I used the small bat punch from the "Every Season Punch Pack".  I punched five of them from the scrap Basic Black that was left from making the frame.  I set the bats in place using pieces of Dimensionals.  I think the card could use some bling and I may color some rhinestones using the dark Highland Heather Blends Pen and set them around on the Whisper White piece.

This was such a fun and quick card to make. I LOVE this little monster and it's SO kid friendly.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
