Scallop Envelope Die meets Frankenstein!


The first day I received my Big Shot Kit, I noticed that the Scallop Envelope Die looked like Frankenstein’s head at a certain angle!  I immediately sat down and made one.  I cut the sides of the envelope so it looked more like the bolts coming out of the side of his head and placed some mini brads there, too.  Well…that is as far as he got.  His head is almost too big for a standard sized card.  Last week, I showed him to my upline, Candy, and she thought the verse, "Friend.  Good."  would be perfect!  I agree!  So I ended up finishing the card, making it a little longer style.  Simple, but cute.

A few days ago the subject of Frankenstein came up on SUDSOL and someone’s husband saw the same thing I did.  Too funny how minds think the same.  So, here is my version.

His face is made with Green Galore cardstock.  I used the large and small ovals for his eyes.  I trimmed small slivers of Basic Black cardstock for the mouth and eyebrows.  I used 1/4 and 1/2 circles for his pupils and nose.  Basic Gray was cut for the bolts on the side of his neck.  I hand drew the scars on his face with a Black marker.

I wrapped Basic Gray taffeta around the Whisper White layer and stamped, Friend.  Good. from Smarty Pants with Basic Black.  I think this will be a fun Halloween card to give someone!

I’m going out of town to do a couple classes over the next couple days.  I may or may not get to post tomorrow.  If not, I’ll be back on Thursday.  Have a great week!
