Swinging Halloween

      I think this is my third House Mouse card this month and each one has been more fun than the last!   I did a summer theme and a Christmas theme and now something in between, Halloween.  

     This time I used ProMarkers and polychromos pencils to color the image and cut it with a QuicKutz die.  I printed the sentiment onto a scrap of white CS, trimmed that to fit as a frame around the image, and added the tiny, hand-tied bow to the corner.

     I made a card base out of gray CS, embossed the top and bottom of it with my 'Linen' EF, and added the square of Halloween dp (DCWV).  That dp is embossed and glittered for some fantastic texture.  I layered the image piece onto that and called it finished.  I tend to do simple, flat Halloween cards because the majority of them get mailed so flat is better.


      Happy Crafting!  NanaConnie

Adorable house mouse card and the writing of your sentiment is excellent and smart to write on something for adhering to the card for fear of ruining a card. Thanks for sharing your adorable Halloween card with us at Double Trouble.

So adorable NC! I so love HM! I so agree with keeping the card flat- the postage just keeps going up and up!
