Frankenstein Says Hello

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Monday edition of the Blog.

Well the Fall season is here officially as of Friday, September 22.  With Fall comes thoughts of harvest time, pumpkins, hay rides and of course Halloween.

CottageCutz has a new release of Halloween & Christmas dies that are now available in the online store for ordering.  So if you have made a wish list, now is the time to get it fulfilled.

My card today is using some of the new dies: Frankenstein & Ghost Owls and Halloween Phrases & More. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

When I saw this Frankenstein Owl die, I immediately knew I was going to make a card for my husband. I call him Dr. Frankenstein sometimes- jokingly of course. He was filling his gas blower in our garage once and the smell filled our entire house. Hence the name was borne for him (lol)!!So he will get a chuckle out of this card as well.

Step 1: Selected my card colors. I found some double sided designer paper in my stash from an old Halloween collection. I liked these patterns and thought it would work well for the layout I had in mind.
Green Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" (cut in half)

Step 2:  I cut my Frankenstein Owl in a light, medium and dark shade of green. He is such a little cutie.
I also cut a rectangle- used 2 different sizes and layered them together on my cardstock to get a wide frame.
 I did the same with the wacky stitched circle to get a wider frame. To connect the layers together, I used the CottageCutz icicle die. I thought it would work for the drippy goo you see on Halloween cards.
I cut my hello word from the CottageCutz Hello Spring die in a pumpkin shade. The pumpkin is part of the Halloween Phrases & More die.
Step 3: Attached the rectangle and circle to the card base. The rectangle is on an angle- just for some added interest.  
I changed the color of the drippy goo to a pumpkin shade. The designer paper has this cinnamon shade in it but its not a lot and I didn't think it was a good match on my card.
My Frankenstein Owl is popped up with dimensional adhesive. Attached the hello word and my pumpkin to the rectangle corner.

To complete my card, I stamped the friend word and scattered a few orange sequins. I hope I have given you some inspiration on a way to use this cute new owl die. It will be available in a few days.
I will be back this Saturday with another sample card with the new dies. So until next time...........inky hugs
