Sorry I am so late posting today. While I was good about participating in this week’s challenges at Splitcoaststampers, I was horrible at writing my blog posts for my creations.

I created this card for both Monday’s Technique Challenge (create your own polka dots) and Monday’s CAS challenge (sketch). I started by cutting Neenah Solar White cardstock and patterned paper from BBP All Hallow’s Eve with MFT’s Cameo die-namics die. Next I stamped the frame of the matching set in Jet Black Archival ink over the patterned paper frame. The image from Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and was colored with Spectrum Markers (Skin: FS2, FS3, TN2 Pumpkin: GB5, OR1, GB7, G10 Stem: DG2, TN2, GB7, GB10, TN7 Shirt: DG2, DG4 Pants: EB7, EB8 Hair: CT2, TN2, GB8 Background: BT1, BT2).

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded.  A 5/8″ x 3 1/4″ piece of BBP All Hallow’s Eve paper was adhered to the lower right hand side of the card. A 5/8″  x 3 5/8″ strip of black cardstock was stamped in the polka dot background from MFT’s By the Numbers stamp set with Distress Embossing Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The black strip was adhered underneath the patterned paper strip.

Two buttons were added with embroidery thread to dress up the card. I didn’t have the right color thread for my white button, so I colored with the the BT1 Spectrum Noir Markers. The image layers were adhered slightly over the paper strip with foam adhesive squares. A sentiment from the Sweetest Pumpkin In the Patch was stamped on the bottom left of the card to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Saturday.
Hugs and smiles
