A Spooky Kitty for Halloween!

My daughter, Michele, and I decided we wanted to make the youngest daughter and sister, Jackie, a Deco Mesh Halloween wreath for the door of her new residence.  We like the ones we made for ourselves so much that we wanted to share our craftiness.  Below is a peek at Jackie's Happy Halloween witchy wreath.  She so loves to decorate for Halloween, and I'm just positive that this may become her very favorite decoration of all.  I know she will LOVE it.

Next, I decided the crafty Halloween wreath could only be accompanied by a crafty homemade card made by Mom (that would be me)!  I decided to spend the afternoon designing my first Halloween card of the season by using some of my new cardmaking dies that I have recently purchased.  One of my favorite purchases is a Poppystamp die, which is a scary kitty face, appropriately called Kitty Cat Face.  To go along with the kitty, I thought my new Spooky word die from Stampin' Up's Seasonal framelits would be perfect.  A little black cardstock, some glitter paper, some dies, some punches, and voila, it is done.  I do just love that Kitty Cat Face die!

Now, I needed a little verse that matched the front card design, and one that certainly speaks of lurking cats on Halloween!  With a bit of research and a dollop of imagination, I came up with this little verse for my card inside.

Recipe:  Darice cardstock: Midnight Black.  The Paper Company cardstock: Victoriana 5-pack (tan).  Recollections Glitter Pad: Haunted (orange).  SU Gold Glimmer.  SU: Seasonal framelit dies (spooky - Holiday 2015).  Poppystamps die: Kitty Cat Face.  EK punch: ZigZag.  Recollections rhintestones.  Computer verse (font: Homemade Apple).  Size 5" x 6".
