DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #201-Halloween Peek A Boo

#201

 

Welcome back!!! Our home sweet home challenge is Halloweenish (is that even a word?) Since I do not send out Halloween cards I have a very limited supply of Halloween stamp sets but I did buy the Halloween Cookie Cutter Set that is amazing!!!

I made a peek-a-boo card this week. These have been on my list to make for awhile now. I should have taken a pic of my craft room floor. I think I wasted 6 sheets of cardstock. I am a visual learner and so I you tubed this particular card. I don't know if my heart just wasn't it or not really paying attention. GEESSHHH!!! It really is not that hard but MAN!!!! I did finish it and am very happy with it. I think I now have all the measurements memorized from making so many "mistakes". UPDATE: THE CARD ITSELF IS NOT HARD. I SHOULD HAVE MADE MYSELF MORE CLEAR. I WAS TRYING TO MAKE THE OPENING MUCH BIGGER-THEREFORE, THE MEASUREMENTS WERE NOT WORKING. ONCE I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS IT WAS PERFECT. I  RECEIVED SOME EMAILS ASKING ABOUT THIS AND I DIDN'T WANT TO DISSUADE ANYONE FROM TRYING TO MAKE THIS!!

I couldn't find a sentiment I liked to go with the skeleton and mummy so what's a stamper to do? I made my own. I printed out a whole sheet. If you would like these to print here they are  Download Timetounwind.

I also wished that I had some muslin that I could have tied around the card in a knot. Oh well, next time!!
