I am not the big Halloween person I was in my younger days, but I am a huge fan of cats!! And I love Black Cats. So I have made a cutesy Halloween card featuring a Black Cat and his unexpected little friend.
Aren’t these little guys just precious? I based my colors from the Call Me Clover green eyes of the cat. Then I colored his little froggy friend with both shades of the Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blends. Of course I now had to use the green instead of yellow on the hat. But that’s OK. We get to use whatever color we want to use!! LOL!!
I do apologize for the shadows of the ribbon on the card. They did not show up as much until I put the photo into the post. But then you know I am not an expert on the photography!!
There are two things I did a little differently on this card. I masked the hat so that the broom in laying underneath it. I did this by stamping on a post it note (the sticky section beneath the rim of the hat) and cutting it out just inside the lines. The second is that I fussy cut the frog and raised him up with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. I especially love that he is looking towards his friend Mr. Cat.
Just to add a little sparkle, I cut three small sections of the Glitter Organdy Ribbon. I wrapped them around a wooden skewer that is one of my pointy tools in my craft space. It gave the ribbon just a little shape.
