HALLOWEEN HAPPINESS

Remember the four cards I was pleased with from my World Cardmaking Day creating? I would like to present to you the first of the four:


This is a hybrid card. I had purchased the Halloween Happiness digital stamp through MDS (My Digital Studio). I "painted" the image in MDS in the colors I wanted, then printed it out onto white cardstock.

After cutting it to size, I adhered it to a Basic Black mat. For the background of the card, I ran watercolor paper through my Big Shot inside the Stylish Stripes embossing folder from the new Holiday Catalog. I haphazardly painted each of the raised stripes in a pattern of green, orange and purple inks.

The image mounted against the striped background was cute, but . . . Hmmm. It needs SOMEthing! Buttons!!

I raided my button jars and grabbed buttons to match my stripes, adding a little white baker's twine tied in a bow to the central, larger purple button.

To me, this card definitely does personify "Halloween Happiness". sigh.

Smiles.
