I love to make Halloween cards! So many thoughts and ideas roaming in my head. I wanted to try my hand at Top Note Die punch art. My first attempt was Scary Mr. Frankie whose inspiration came from Jacqueline Dorer-Russell (http://sugarssmilinpapercrafts.blogspot.com/2013/09/frankenstein-card.html) when I saw her Frankie card on Pinterest. I decided to tweak his ears a bit, as she is now using the Stampin' Up Decorative Label as shown on her video tutorial. I also wanted to use patterned Halloween papers from my huge stash. I decided to put him on a 3/4 front-fold card so I could use SCARY alphabet letters beside him, and give him a bow-tie as well. I designed an interior to compliment the outside and added a little verse that I composed. Scary Mr. Frankie will be going to my son Mark and his wife Ginger, to wish them lots of fun on Halloween!
