Just quickly stopping by to wish everyone a happy Halloween and to post an entry for this week’s Make It Monday, using inlaid die cuts.
The design is simple, but when making multiples with all of the die cuts involved, I don’t think I could have added more and mailed the cards on time. Brianna saw me cranking the handle of my Cuttlebug and asked if there wasn’t a motorized version I could buy. She is ever so practical.
To me, what makes this card is the patterned paper used for the eyes, mouth and stem. That detail added a little bit of whimsy to the pumpkin. And, with shifting the triangle dies ever so slightly, each pumpkin had its own personality.
I live on a busy street, so only the most diehard trick-or-treaters, adolescent boys, make it to my door. I’ve been tempted to shut off the floodlights, since the buying of candy, etc. seems almost too much trouble for two or three kids, but I just cannot allow myself to turn into that old fart each neighborhood has. Hope you get lots of children in fun and original costumes gracing your door.
