Smell My Feet!

Hello TRC Fans!  Doesn't that title just make you giggle just alittle?  I know I really love Halloween and the contents of the September Creative Cafe' Kit are so perfect to make little tags, gifts and cards for Halloween.  Here is a quick video showing the contents of this month's kit!

Today I decided to make a different sized card than I usually make.  Usually with the Creative Cafe' kits, I stick to the A2 size cards but today I went for something a bit bigger.  This card will fit into a regular business sized envelope. It measures 4x9".

Here is my card......

To begin, I cut the purple cardstock to 8 x 9", scored it at 4" and folded it in half.  Then I cut a piece of the black dotted swiss cardstock to 3 3/4 x 8 3/4".  Because the papers are only 6x6, I had to pick two patterns that complimented each other.  I cut the plaid patterned paper to 3 1/2  x6" and the green patterned paper 31/2 x 3 1/2".  I glued the plaid paper down first and then overlapped the green paper just a bit.  I tied the ribbon around where the two papers join.  I stamped the feet onto squares of 1 3/4 x 1 3/4" white cardstock from the kit. After I colored them with my copic markers, I adhered them to scalloped squares that I die cut from the black cardstock.   I adhered the squares to my card using 3d foam squares.  After I attached the layers to the purple cardstock base, I added some rhinestones to the 4 corners of my card.  I think it turned out great!  

Thanks for stopping by today!
