The week went so fast and I’m sorry to say I’m back with my final project for the week. I’ve added a bonus project for you at the end. The Spooky Skeleton card is something I made on my Gypsy literally just fooling around with some images. The card base is welded and I have a Gypsy file attached HERE for those of you who have one. If not, I have a few tips for you to make this without one. If you like the cut out frame look—you can cut two of the shifts of the frame , make a “hinge” with a 1.5” x 2” piece of paper folded in half and attach to the top to make a hinge. Then cut the top layer of the frame out twice and attach over the others to cover the hinge. This would give you the look without the Gypsy. If you don’t want to go to that trouble, you can just make your basic 5”x7” folded card, cut the frame out and attach to the front of the card. Other than that, there are no welds.
Frame—Happy Hauntings (I welded two 6.3 inch frames together). I cut the weld out in solid black and the grey/black glitter and layered them. I also the inside of the frame out in a script print. If you don’t have a Gypsy and using the “hinge” method I mentioned above, cut at 6”. If using the basic method, you will have to adjust the size of the frame to your card front. The two layers of the card base are Pop Dotted together.
Skeleton and Skeleton Shadow—Happy Hauntings 3.5”
Sign—Happy Hauntings 1” I cut this twice to get the black for the inside of the frame.
Spooky Stamp—Stamps of Life with white pigment ink
Chain on Skeleton can be found in the jewelry section of your craft store
Paper Line—Anna Griffin Halloween and DCWV Metallic’s in Silver
You will notice that in quite a few places on this card I cut things out and layered them without Pop Dots as I did in a earlier project this week. That is why you see two of everything on the mat.
When cutting small pieces like this it is always a good idea to leave them on the mat while assembling the layers. It holds down your base layer. Also a tweezers is a must!
Just a basic bow at the top and I added some of the negatives of the frame after I took them off the mat to the inside of the card.
And for the bonus project….I made this with my Imagine and the Imagine More Cards Cartridge and Wild Card Cartridge. This is for Joy, Melanie and all you that took the time to look at my projects and leave the incredible comments all week long. You really don’t know how much your kind words mean to me!
I have tried to answer everyone’s questions all week through emails and comments here, but if I missed someone or you still have a question, please feel free to contact me any time by emailing me. You can get my address on my Blog HERE. I will post some details of how I made this card on the Imagine on my Blog on Monday……but for now thanks again and I hope to see you again soon! Maria
