I think this card was cuter in my head than it turned out on paper. But since it is cut and put together it will just have to do. Besides who cares since it will go in my card box never to be seen again! This is also from Celebrate with Flourish.
I really can't remember what the background mat paper is and I think I got it probably over 2 years ago. I thought it would look good because of the bats but I think I needed to cut the Jack O' Lantern smaller...but too late now!
The words "Jack" and "O Lantern" are actually some stickers I had. I might have gotten them during the "send okie ugly stickers" campaign or I might have gotten them at the LSS that had went out of business. *okie shrugs* Either way I think they worked good for this card.
Yep you see Stickles! Yellow and Stardust were used to try and liven up the Cricut cut. I inked the edges using Pumpkin Pie Stampin Up ink and used the same color marker to do the lines on the pumpkin. Old Olive was used for the leaf and swirl.
Looking at the pictures just now I think I do like this card, but this might be one of those occasions where the picture is better than the real thing!
Tomorrow I will be posting one more Halloween card and then it is on to something else!
I really like this card. I have 15 g-kids and would love to get as many cards in the mail as possible. I get inspired by your ideas and many times after visiting your blog actually get off the internet and head to my studio and turn my Circut on and start creating. Will have to post some of those on my new site soon.ReplyDelete
BTW, I love OKC - my middle son and his family live there and I love it when I visit. Hopefully another trip before the end of the year. I have not found any LSS when I go out there - I usually end up in the local yarn and quilt shops on N. May Avenue. Both have the most friendly shops!
LOLOL you do make me giggle! (Send Okie ugly stamps campaign) I wish I'd have known you then. I have had some ugly stickers in my time.ReplyDelete
Like the card just the way it is! Yes It might have been done a different way, but why second guess your choices. It's a great card for someone who's birthday is on halloween! lol
I really like this card too. I like the jack o lantern cut!!ReplyDelete
I think it turned out great! That jack-o-lantern is cute. :)ReplyDelete

Super cute card!!! I love mat stacks, they make things so much easierReplyDelete
I really enjoy reading your blog. I find your comments hilarious!ReplyDelete
Anyway, I like the card a lot and I am not into Halloween that much. I agree with you on the sticker tho. Other than that I think the card is very cute. I love your work!!
You used a STICKER!!! I'm totally shocked! ROFLMAO!ReplyDelete
The card turned out cute and I like the Stickles on it!
Halloween is such a fun time of the year. I send cards to all of my grandchildren for almost every holiday. They love getting mail. Love your cards, and check your blog everyday. Thanks for sharing all that you do. :)ReplyDelete
I think this card is really cute as is!ReplyDelete
This is such a fun card! Those little label stickers do work wonderfully on this.ReplyDelete
Another great Card ... I really like that BG paper, it makes the Jack O'Lantern look like he is sitting out in the spooky night air.ReplyDelete
I also like the leaf on the top too ... it's almost like a jaunty little cap, isn't it! =)
But I am unsure of that mouth. It's open awfully wide, don't you think? Hmmm, I wonder, is he just smiling really big? Or is he just luring in some unsuspecting person with his friendly grin? Perhaps he is getting ready to take a great big bite outta something? Or someone? Or me????
Eeeeeeeeekkkkk! I'm outta here!
Cute card! What cartridge did you use for the pumpkin and swirls cutout?ReplyDelete
You silly girl this is so cute. The little bats work perfect. Is this on Flourish too?ReplyDelete
LOVE THIS CARD!!!!! I think you did a wonderful job on this card and love the paper!!!! I really enjoy your blog and your comments - THANKS!!!!ReplyDelete
Sometimes I feel the same way about a card and who ever I give it to loves it, you keep up the good work girlfriend you're the best! The card is very cute just like you!ReplyDelete
I haven't cut this image yet either...I like your card... the background paper goes well with it... and I like the fact that you added stickles to the pumpkins mouth, nose, eyes... it gives it that extra something-something!ReplyDelete
