WARNING! Monster Inside!by Jen Carter
For today's card I thought a little outside the box. I love the new Frantic Stamper Snowflake Reverse Cut die! As soon as I saw it I knew that this is one I'd go back to time & time again. But, since I'm looking forward to FALL and not winter, I thought that I could put this die to another use as well! Yep! I turned those little snowflakes into eyeballs! :) After I cut out the die from black paper, I backed it with a bright yellow cardstock. I used a black marker to make a little dot for eyeballs on some of the yellow circles. I think it looks like monster eye balls. Then, I heat embossed the sentiment from the cute Monster Mash Up stamp set in Neon Purple embossing powder. I could see using this die and doing something similar with the eyes with the Birch Trees & other tree dies (like this one)!
When you open up the card you have a very simple message and a little guy greeting you! :) I thought about adding a lot of monsters to the inside, but thought that this way was so much cuter.
The Floral Happy Birthday die cut seemed perfect for this card because it was fun & playful, much like the card. I used Stick It! to adhere my sentiment die cut. It's SO much easier this way! I embossed the sentiment in neon purple again and it is also from the Monster Mash Up stamp set. I used the Pop-Up Bases die to make the little monster (from the Monster Mash Up stamp set & Monster Mash Outline Dies) stick out from the front of the card when it is opened. Such a fun surprise!
