Trick or Treat

Happy Monday everyone!! Can you believe Halloween is this coming weekend (Friday to be exact!)?? Where did October go? Have you gotten all of your cards made yet? I haven't...eeekkkkk!!!! I'm still not 100% and leading up to everything my usual physical limitations were compounded upon setting me back even further than I was so I'm behind in just about every aspect of my life but I feel like I'm slowly gaining ground again!! 

I see gals do it all the time, but in all honesty it scares me because I'm afraid of ruining a darling piece of patterned paper, however, I dove in and stamped on the patterned paper for this little creation. Not so bad, right? When I am looking at the cards in editing I always manage to find something to nit pick over and this card is no different. I see now that I should have used Staz-On VS. Momento to stamp the kitty to make him darker or colored him in with a marker...he's a little too sheer. 

I started off with a regular A2 sized Kraft card base and layered a fun Halloween print on it. I then made a panel from the poka dot print and punched the upper corners. I layered another pattern making on panel and added the twine to cover the seam where they meet. Now originally I was just going to add the pre-made star and the little flags I had made but decided the bottom needed something to I pulled out the Halloween fence & Halloween kitty and stamped them along the bottom. After adding the panel to the card using foam tape I added the pre-made star and the 2 little flags I made using the DeNami Trick Or Treat stamp and the sentiment from the Halloween stamp set petit four.
