Happy Wednesday morning!! I've been trying to draw some new designs, but nothing has been working out quite right...don't you hate when you're trying to create and that happens?? Anyway...instead of getting frustrated, I thought I'd try to get my creative juices flowing with some stamping. I've been meaning to use my "Little Monster Pals" stamp for a Halloween project. Just by adding stamp #708 (Pumpkin Basket)...they've been turned into little trick-or-treating monsters!! I combined them with my trio of trick-or-treating word stamps to get this:
I used my 2 Marvy tag punches (pink and blue), with a foam dot in between for dimension. Here's a closer look at each panel:
The measurements for this card is 2-3/4" x 6-1/4"...score at 2", 4" and 4-1/4". Of course, you'll need something to put the card in...click here for a simple template for this "flapless envelope/box":
Fold up the card and it slips right in. I kept the outside decorations simple using stamp #701 (Pumpkin) and a place to address the "envelope". Then I got carried away and had to make one using some belated birthday stamps:
I used a Martha Stewart scallop border punch...if you punch out a border, make sure you punch it out first and then measure your card size to 2-3/4" x 8-1/4". Score at 2", 4", 4-1/4" and 6-1/4". Here's a closer look:
With that extra 4th panel, you'll need a little wider box...click here for a template.
ok...it's back to the drawing board for me...wish me luck!!!
