Greeting Card Kids Halloween Pumpkin Card

I made this card for a swap. I normally don’t do Halloween cards but this little girl was too cute to resist.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with Basic Black. Then, I used Old Olive card stock, embossed with the Big Shot and Square Lattice Embossing Folder, and die cut with the Top Note Bigz Die. The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain, wrapped around the top note layer.

For the main image, I stamped the pumpkin girl from Greeting Card Kids in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock. I colored in the image with SU Markers (Dusty Durango, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry, Blush Blossom, Blushing Bride, and Basic Black and Copic Black).

After coloring, I used 2 Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds on the pumpkin. The Black Copic Marker must have been wet still because the glitter stuck to the hat as well. It was an unintended but welcome effect.

Then, I used the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the image and attached a little “Boo” tag with a Circle Rhinestone Brad. The “boo” is from Tiny Tags and the punch I used is the Tiny Tag Punch.
