Scary Skeleton Card – but he’s not very scary…

Hi – Haven’t had much time to stamp lately but I did manage to sneak down newly imported 925 last night and make this Halloween card.  It’s a 4”x4” size which is perfect to tuck in with some chocolate treats to a friend!  The skeleton is stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder and cut out.  He comes from the Scary Skeleton stamp set.  The DSP is Cast-a-Spell and cut out on the Big Shot with the Top Note die – it’s backed in black cardstock.  The Top Note die has a skinny perforated edge and I just snipped that off of the DSP piece so the black would create a border.  The circle is from the Batty for You stamp set.  I just punched out the skeleton head part of the stamped image with a ¾” circle punch and looped it over the knots in the ribbons – kind of looks like a big rivet or grommet!  The 3 buttons in the corner are just from my jar of buttons and seemed to add the little bit of balance I was looking for.  Hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by -
