I created this card for the Essex Stamp Club gang. We met virtually back in June (it seems AGES ago), and we’ll be meeting virtually again this week. This time around we’re focusing on items from the August – December Mini catalog. For this card I pulled out some main catalog goodies and combined them with the Celebration Tidings bundle to create this Halloween themed card. I love the Celebration Tidings bundle because it is so versatile – there are sentiments and images for holidays between Halloween and Valentine’s Day. In short, it is perfect for the season that we are approaching. And there are some beautiful stitched label dies in multiple sizes that I’m sure I’ll use a lot even though I didn’t use them on this card. I’m also very enamored with the Best Plaid Builder dies because I can create plaid patterns in any color combination. They are so fun to create with!

I used this sketch from Mojo Monday as the inspiration for my card. I’ve been a fan of Mojo Monday sketches for years and I was so excited to discover recently that Julee has started sharing her sketch inspirations again. I especially love that she is including measurements in her sketches now! I can totally figure out my own measurements to approximate a sketch, but having them in the sketch canmake the process so much quicker. I did adjust a couple of measurements for my card to accommodate a slight difference in the size of the stamped circle.
