Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Yes you are seeing Halloween items in the stores. No it’s not your imagination. However the Monster Release came just in time for Halloween. I used the Monster 2, Halloween Accessories along with the Pull Tab dies to create my Interactive Sweet ‘n Scary Card. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Diecut Slimline Adventure Edges (clouds) using White Cardstock to use as a stencil. Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/2″ x 6″. Place the diecut on the cardstock and using a Blending Brush apply ink of your choice. Repeat this step until you reach the bottom of the cardstock. I used Distress Oxide Villainous Potion.
Step 3 – Diecut Pull Tab using White Cardstock except for the rectangular hole piece, you will need to diecut that piece using the panel created in Step 2. Follow the score lines and assemble the pieces. Once everything is assembled adhere the panel to the card front using 3mm Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Monster 2 using White Soft Finish Cardstock (ink the cardstock using orange ink. I used Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade – except for teeth and eyes). For shading I used Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon and Candied Apple for the warts. Assemble and adhere to the 2 tabs sticking out using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Diecut Party Accessories using coloured Cardstock (purple for hat, yellow for buckle, black for strip and bats, brown for broom stick). Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 6 – Diecut Slimlime Adventure Edges (grass) using Green Cardstock. Stamp Monster Hugs sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
