Boo!

Hey, hey! How are you doing? I'm enjoying my free week. Can't believe it's almost over though. Where did the time go?! O.o 

Today I have a Halloween card to show you. Say WHAT?! Yup, you read that right - a Halloween card. You probably know that I am not a big fan of Halloween and that I usually don't do Halloween crafts, but yesterday my sweetie asked me if I could make a Halloween card for him. I was a bit surprised by his request, but of course I said I would do it. He asked me if I could include a witch, black cat and possibly even some pumpkins on the card. Oh, and he aslo asked that the card isn't cute. I put my thinking cap on and went to work. It proved to be quite a challenge, because I don't have a whole lot of Halloween stamps, dies or embellishments, but at least it got me thinking outside the box and put my creativity to test. ;) Here's what the card looks like ...

First I drew the template for the tree. None of those that I found on the internet were exactly what I wanted so I grabbed a pencil and drew one myself. I added some tiny pieces of cheesecloth on the branches for the spider webs. At the end I also wrote "boo" using my white pen. I made the pumpkins and bats templates myself as well. On top of each pumpkin I glued some googly eyes so it looks like as if someone is peeking from behind.


Pumpkins, bats and cat are raised on foam pads which gives the card some extra dimension.

I gave this card to my sweetie earlier today and he loved it. Yay! :D I'm glad I accepted his challenge as it was nice to make something different. 

Have a wonderful day! xx
