After making Scary Mr. Frankie (and a pirate punch art card in between), I decided why not a mummy, so I put myself to the task. I have seen several rectangular cards made with mummies and even made one at a Liz Thayer cardmaking class in September. Liz's card was my favorite of all that I've seen because she used the torn paper technique, which I thought made the bandages more authentic. So, I decided to try my mummy with the Top Note die punch art technique, which was one I have never seen done. I then made up a little verse and complimentary inside decorations. My sister was particularly fond of Otzi the Mummy when I finished him, so I thought it only appropriate that he go to here to wish her a frightful Halloween!
