It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Hallowe’en Kitty – TT042 for the image and Happy Halloween – H232 for the sentiment. I thought it would be fun to end the month off with another spooky card since Hallowe’en is only a few days away from now.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. Textura Select Cardstock – Tropicana was cut to the same size as the base and adhered using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. I stamped the main image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto a scrap piece of orange cardstock using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Cuttlebug and Gina K Designs – Sentiment Strips, I die cut the sentiment that I stamped.
The image was coloured in and then I used a black Prismacolor Premier Pencil to highlight a few of the areas to make them stand out a little more. I also extended the fence to the ends of the die cut on both sides. I added back in the whites of the eyes with a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and some stars in the night sky. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the sentiment and the coloured image. They were both popped up onto the base to complete the card.
