Boooooo! A Halloween Card for PCCC #2

When I work on a card challenge, I like to look at the design and think about what the shapes naturally lend themselves to doing. In the case of the Paper Craft Crew Challenge 2 (PCCC #2), I wanted to find something that fit that curve at the bottom of the card. I thought about the far end of a grand piano and perhaps a wave on the ocean. Nothing really seemed right though. When I went through my MDS stamps however, I found the solution in a perfectly curved Booo! stamp.

Here’s this week’s original sketch:

And here’s my version of the card:

Boooo! Halloween Card

Here are the resources that I used to make the card:

  • Background: Basic Black
  • Square and Oval Punches to create the Elegant Eggplant layer
  • Square Punches of Wicked Fun DSP – 5 (the Halloween words)
  • Stamps:
    • Scaredy Cat – Boo, in Pumpkin Pie
    • Scaredy Cat – Spider 1, in Basic Black, embellished with two Pumpkin Pie brads
  • Square Punches of Vintage Overlays DSP – Texture 6 on top of the paper layers to create a web look
