Frightening Feline

This single stamp, Frightening Feline, was first on my order with the new Holiday Mini.  Of course, that is because I love Halloween and I have a kitty, Bleach!  lol!  Here is my card for another Control Freak swap…Halloween/Fall Swap from the Holiday Mini.  I did get some GREAT swap cards with this smaller than normal swap!



It is really a "frightening" simple card, too!  I did showcase a couple of the new products in the Holiday Mini.  I cut a 4×4 square of Howlingstooth & Scaringbone Designer Paper, then cut that in half diagonally for the front of the card.  It is layered on the Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I stamped the Halloween Kitty with Basic Black on Basic Gray cardstock, cut it with the Window Frame Framelits and temporarily adhered it to the front of the card.  I used the Festive Piercing Pack and pierced around the Tangerine Tango portion, not pierced on the DSP area…but I suppose you could.  Then I permanently attached the center Basic Gray panel with Stampin' Dimensionals inside the pierced area.   It just doesn't work to attach it with the Stampin' Dimensionals first…ask me how I know!  I added a Basic Black flower from the BoHo Blossom Punch with an orange Glimmer brad inside for a little sparkle.  The Tangerine Tango layer is adhered to the Basic Black base card.


As I said…pretty simple, but easily demonstrated card that shows off our WIndow Frames and Festive Piercing Pack!

Brilliant layout! Love the framelit dieing into the designer paper! Doesn't the paper piercing add so much!
