I’m too sexy for my broom!

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday – I hope you’re having a great week! It’s Day 2 of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and I’ve popped in this morning to share a fun Halloween card. This is the 8th year Janis has organized this amazing Hop and it’s going on until the 29th, so if you’re a fellow cat lover, come join us! There’s fun and games to join in every day, and Janis has lined up some pretty awesome prizes to give away at the end!

I typically don’t make many Halloween cards but I have made a few this year and I just had to use Burt on his broom and the coordinating sentiment! I absolutely LOVE the Riley & Co. Funny Bones line and Burt is one of my favs! He’s such a hoot!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel and die cut cityscape (using the Memory Box Cityscape Nighttime die) from CutCardStock Pop Tone Black Licorice cardstock. I also cut a layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and adhered the cityscape at the bottom. I stamped Burt on his broom and colored him with alcohol markers, and adhered the panel to the black licorice layer and then to the card base. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it over the cityscape. The finishing touch was adding several pearls from an Eyelet Outlet purple Pearl Bling Strip.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of Doodlebug Design Beetle Black Swiss Dot Washi Tape. I stamped a Halloween sentiment from The Project Bin Cool Ghoul stamp set that I had out on my desk from another project, and layered the panel on black licorice cardstock.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
