Okay, before I get to Day 2 of my GCK (Greeting Card Kids) Series, I need to admit a little something.
I'm not the biggest fan of Halloween (gasp - I know!). I mean, I let the kids dress up in something cute and say "Happy Halloween" to their grandparents and other relatives, but beyond that, I think this is a holiday that can be very dark.
Sorry if I offended anyone, but I feel like I needed to put that out there first. :)
On the flip-side, since I'm doing this series on the Greeting Card Kids, and this (mighty cute) image is a part of that, I felt like it need to be included (even though I'd rather she was a ballerina or something). I'm actually quite pleased with how it turned out. Except for ONE thing...read on.
GCK - Happy Halloween!
I just REALLY had a hard time with placement of the sentiment! I moved it multiple times, multiple places! AGH!!! I'm still not incredibly happy with it...love everything else about how the card looks.
Here's the deets: The card base is Basic Black, the next layer is Old Olive run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. Cut a circle of Rich Razzleberry cardstock out with my Circle Scissors Plus and sponged it with same color ink. Added some black brads. Colored the cute lil' pumpkin with my markers and aquapainter. I also added a splash of color on the 'happy halloween' pieces. :) Oh. And the main image is up on dimensionals...of course. ;-)
Well, what do you think? Yesterday's card only received 3 comments -YIKES! Everyone must be outside enjoying the weather, eh? ;-)
