Hello everyone and Happy Halloween!
This is the Halloween card I made this year. My inspiration for this card came from the decorations at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (Disney World) and from a card made by this blogger: http://glorascrafts.blogspot.com/2010/10/mickey-mouse-pick-of-patch.html
For my card, I used the Cricut cartridges, Mickey & Friends, Martha Stewart's Seasonal Cake Art, and George. I started with the solid Mickey head icon, and using my Gypsy, I pieced together his face. I used two sizes of long ovals for the eyes (George) and welded them add the bottom. The nose and mouth are from another Mickey cut on M&F. For the nose, I used the same face, but reduced the size a bit and "hid" everything but the nose for the cut. That gave me a nose slightly smaller than the cutout on the pumpkin. The stem is from MS Seasonal Cake Art. (pg. 62 of the handbook) I shaded it some with my Copic marker. The shaded lines on the pumpkin were done with a VersaMark marker. Mickey is attached to the front of the card using Stampin' Up Dimensionals. The "bubbles" on the black square behind Mickey were done by using a MS punch around the page punch set.
The inside of the card was done with two $1.00 stamps I purchased at Michaels. They were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copics. Because the Copics can "bleed through", even on heavier cardstock, I stamped the design on a separate piece of cardstock matching the card. Then to give it a little something extra, I used another MS Punch Around the Page set to form the spider webs all around the edges.
On the back, I stamped a single kernel of candy corn in the middle, colored it with Copics and added my name and the year.
Thanks for looking!
