Hello.... I am a huge fan of Halloween, it is my wedding anniversary after all. Also I am slightly obsessed with skulls and skeletons... well, slightly is putting it mildly! When I first saw the adorable 'Freaky Friends' stamp set I immediately had to have it. I have to design my Anniversary/Halloween Party invites very, very soon and really need some more Halloween stamps. This year will be our 5th Anniversary, we had a rather small wedding so I said for our 5th Anniversary we'll invite everyone we couldn't before. I'm super excited to get to plan a get-together this year, I've been on Pinterest a lot, too much - there are so many ideas out there from decor to the food, and well pretty much everything else too.... so naturally I want to make it all. Well more about that later, moving onto the card I made to share today!
I knew I wanted to play with the super cute skeleton and I wanted to stamp them in rows - not sure how they ended up in the pattern they did, but I went with it anyways! I used Tangelo Twist (my new fav orange... love it!) - truthfully any orange is my favourite, but I always find myself using this particular one lately!
I really like the new hostess promotion 'Good Greetings' stamp set - it has some great Halloween sentiments. I used the Trick or Treat & Happy Halloween. You can check it out below, so many great sayings for all of the upcoming holiday seasons!
I will admit that I used the stamp-a-ma-jig a lot on this card since I ordered both my stamp sets used in wood mount and I didn't want my skeletons or words just randomly stamped!
I finished by adding 3 'hanging' skeletons - fussy cut and strung up with linen thread... ouch, that sounds painful!! I even think they're cute... is that weird?! I hope you like it, I really have to get started on my party invites... always the procrastinator. I'll admit it at least :)
