Fang-tastic Halloween

Hi there!

Welcome to my first Mojo Monday attempt. Okay, it's not my first CARD I've made from the inspirational sketches, but it IS the first one I've managed to post.

I love the way this card turned out.

I started with a base of Old Olive card stock and then layered it with Whisper White that was sponged with old olive ink. A layer of the striped paper from Wicked Fun Specialty designer paper is attached to Rich Razzleberry at both the top and bottom with machine stitching. Don't you love how perfectly straight the scallop edge is? Want to know my secret? I punched out three flowers out of card stock using the Fancy Flower Extra large punch. Then I cut off two scallops at a time and laid them side by side. Cute, huh?

The cute little witch is stamped in black Staz-on onto Whisper White card stock and is colored in with markers. The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Old Olive card stock that has been punched out with the new Decorative Label punch that was then cut in half.

My "buttons" were created using a 1/2" circle punch, a 1/16" circle punch, versamark ink and embossing powder. I love these flatter "buttons" for mailing. The card is topped off with a piece of Rich Razzleberry polka dot grosgrain ribbon that has the polka dots turned to the inside.

I hope you enjoyed this card!
