Well, if I was on top of things, I would have dug out an old Halloween card to share. But, call me lame! I was busy finishing a costume for my 4-year-old darling! When I asked her a few months ago what she wanted to be for Halloween, she said to my surprise--- "a purple kitty." Ok, I said. A purple kitty? Where does she come up with this stuff? Luckily, I found some purple leopard fur and made a really stinkin' cute costume. My daughter is so fun though, she could wear a knapsack and pull it off!
On to today! A friend of mine, Karen Lindsay, came up with this card design and I "made it my own!" It is a card with a sleeve for a book mark on the front. I love the idea! What a great card to give a bookworm along with a great book?? Fun!
This card was done by just using the marker misting technique. I used different colors of marker to color up the leaf and berry stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it, misted it with water and kept going to get multiple generations of the image. The saying in the bottom is also from Stampendous. The pocket was created by folding and tearing some vellum. I layered some card stock and embellished with brads and I was done! The gold tassel at the top of the book mark was actually created with embroidery thread.
Happy Halloween! Hope you get more treats than tricks!
