Happy Monday!!! It’s a new week and why not start it off with something super cute! This little purple monster is just the cutest thing ever. I know it is suppose to be creepy or scary but come on….it’s adorable! Don’t you think?
The instant I saw this little monster in the Boo To You Stamp Set, I had to have it. This little monster is perfect for kid cards, Halloween, and so much more! I pictured it in purple and orange right away. After creating this card, I thought a blue and green monster would be super cute too. What are some other color combinations??
I started with a Gorgeous Grape card base. Next, I layered on a piece of the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate next to the card fold. TIP: There is a very thin plastic cover over the acetate to keep it shiny. Be sure to peel this off before adding to your project. Have no fear if you forget because I did 20 of these cards before I knew about it. It looks just as perfect! I tied some Gorgeous Grape Striped Ribbon around the card and into a knot. This helps smooth out the look between the acetate and the cardstock.
For the monster, I stamped him…or her…in Basic Gray Ink from the Boo To You Stamp Set. I like to use gray because it’s a lighter more subtle look for coloring. Using the Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends, I colored in the monster. Then I layered it onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the greeting, I stamped it in Gorgeous Grape from the Boo To You Stamp Set. After stamping it on Whisper White, I punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch and added it to the card front. I placed it on the right side and just trimmed off the excess. To finish it off, I added an orange rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestones Pack! It goes perfectly!
