So I have been very neglectful with my blogging these past few month. I have been a bit depressed with my husbands’ new work schedule. It has not given me the warm and fuzzies to create these past few weeks. I am hoping to get better. I find when I finally sit down to write I end up napping on the couch or crocheting something for someone else. Check out this blanket I did for my Chiropractor’s new baby coming next month.
Now back to the card at hand. LOL
This Cat Punch card is so super simple and a perfect Halloween card.
- I started with 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Crushed Curry Cardstock folded in half for the base.
- A piece of Basic Black cut at 5 1/4 x 4 inch. I then took the largest circle of the Layering Circles Framelits and cut out the “moon”. With this leftover piece, I punched out my Cat with the punch.
- Taking your basic black lay it atop the crushed curry where you would like it to be and sponge some Pumpkin Pie ink with a sponge. This creates your moon’s textured look.
- I then placed my Linen thread around my basic black and then popped it up with dimentionals.
- Take your small circle punch and cut out 3 circles. Stamp a pumpkin face on one. I drew mine in after realizing I had one from the Paper Pumpkin kit that we got for September. I was a little bummed about that. Oh well, I can redo it again if I choose to for the kids.
- I then took the Whisper White craft in and sponged it onto all the circles and then a bit on my punched out Cat. Place all your circles together with some glue staggering them so they look like a pumpkin. I did use a touch of old olive for a leaf on the pumpkin.
- I glued the cat and the pumpkin onto the basic black and used a dimensionals for the head of the cat to keep it popped up.
- Lastly, I took a 1/4 x 4 inch piece of pumpkin pie cardstock and stamped Happy Halloween on it.
A simple and quick card for the Grandkids…
