Happy World Card Making Day!

Hello friends!  Of course I can’t let this day go by without making a card for it, right?!

I love Halloween and when I received this image, I thought it would be so fun to create a card with it for the occasion!

Vicki-WCMD2018-Freebieimage on FB

This image is from the retired artist Kirsten Winkelbauer (for Whimsy Stamps) and she’s so cute and perfect for Halloween crafting!  I’ve colored her up with Copic markers and added a few details with my gel pens.  I’ve also put some loose glitter over the eyes and nose of the pumpkin on her hat.  I fussy cut her out and popped her up with foam squares over a Kraft cardstock cut out stitched oval that was sponged with some black ink.  I’ve also cut around the sentiment and sponged some more black ink around the edges and attached it to the oval panel.

For the card base, I used an A2 sized Kraft card base and then I took another piece of Kraft card stock and cut out a piece using the Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Nested dies that I’ve covered with a piece of Halloween paper from my stash and also sponged around the edges with some black ink.   I wrapped a piece of Halloween purple ribbon around it and attached it to the back and then adhered my card front to the card base.  I die cut a web twice with black card stock and glued it to the corners of the card front and then brushed over it with a clear glitter brush marker.


Here’s a closer look at my coloring.  You can better see where I’ve added my gel pen dots and the glitter on my pumpkin.  Her green hair was so fun to color! 🙂

Hope that you are taking the time to have fun and create a card today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!  See you soon!

    1. Sorry Patti, I don’t think this image is available for purchase. It was given as a freebie during “Word Card Making Day” in the Whimsy Stamps Facebook Group. Not sure if you look through the group, it still might be in there. (Not sure if you’ve joined that group or not either, but that’s where it was.) Thanks for your kind comments! HUGS
