Hello there! I think this may be my most favorite card I've ever made. I love all things primitive, but apparently SU! doesn't, lol, so I had to get creative:) I started with a Crumb Cake base and added some DSP which worked really well. I used Happy Haunting and Sweet Li'l Things. I used the Essentials Paper-piercing Template, Mat & Tool to poke holes around the edges and used a Basic Black Project Life Journaling Pen to make a faux blanket stitch.
I used various framelits and punches for each shape and used the retired distressing tool around the edges. I used Whisper White Craft ink with a Sponge Dauber for the cat, and Soft Suede ink to add some age to the others. I also stamped each shape with the Hardwood background stamp with Soft Suede ink. For the cat I used Basic Black Cardstock with the Banner Framelits and rounded the bottom with my Paper Snips. I added a Pumpkin Pie nose that I punched out with the Tree Punch and trimmed it down a bit. For the pumpkin I used Tangelo Twist Cardstock with the new Square Pillow Box Thinlits and rounded the corners. I used Soft Suede Cardstock for the stem and nose using the Tree Punch again and the candy cane die for the stem. I used the Journaling Marker to draw his mouth.
For the star I used Hello Honey Cardstock and the Stars Framelits, again using my Paper Snips to create a primitive star. I thread 3 sequins from the Brights Assortment onto Linen Thread, tied knots on both ends and adhered with Glue Dots. For the moon I used Crumb Cake Cardstock and the Large Oval Punch to make a skinny moon. I tied a Linen Thread bow around it and added stars from the Metalllic Sequins Asssortment and used them for the eyes as well. I attached all the shapes with Dimensionals and used the set Howl-o-ween Treat for the ssentiment in Basic Black Archival ink.
Are there any other primitive fans out there? I wish SU! would give us a little bit of this, but for now, I'll just have to make my own. I've got a couple of projects left, so make sure to swing by tomorrow. Thanks so much for stopping by:)
