If The Broom Fits, Ride It and Other Tips!

I just love this fun card using the Monster Bash Creative Cafe Kit. I used the Spooky Feet stamp set for this card.

TIP #1  Look at the paper included in each kit.  I love doing simple things like cutting out a border to make a fun impact on a card.  In this case I started with a 4 inch piece of the green chevron paper and  cut out the chevron paper so the dot paper can peek out from behind.

My green panel ends up being about 4 3/4 inches from the longest tips on each end.  The orange panel is 4 x 5 1/4 inches.  The black panel is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

The small sentiment piece measures 2 1/2 x 1/4 inch.  The Halloween sentiment is stamped on paper measuring 3 15/16 inches x 11/16 inches.  The black mat measures 4 3/16 x 13/16 inches.

TIP #2  Look at the embellishments and see how you can combine them to create a new embellishment.    I wasn't too keen on the buttons for my card, but I wondered what it would look like if I popped a gem on them.  Now it looks like I have gem-topped brads and I still can use the buttons and gems separately if I wish to!

As you can see, I did a spot of fussy cutting once again.  I popped the broom and her toes up with foam tape...resulting in a fun whimsical Halloween greeting!
