Too Cute To Spook

Hi!  My name is Fran and I am the newest member of Cutters Creek Design Team.  I am so happy to be part of this wonderful team.  And I hope my creations bring you lots of inspiration just like the fun they give me creating them for you.
Before I share my project with you I would love to show you what it looked like before it was done.
8-14 Photo of Card Supplies
Most of the supplies I used are in this photo except for the Cricut.  I used the Cricut to cut a couple of SVGs files using my SCAL Software.
NOTE:  The current SCAL3 Software does not support the Cricut.  Go here to view the list of machines it does support.
In keeping with the main theme of using Flower Soft.   I decided to make a greeting card using Halloween as my theme.  Oh you know Halloween will be knocking at your door before you know it.  I pulled out my Flower Soft called Autumn (beautiful mix of Fall colors).  And I added just a touch to my image and just that small accent of Flower Soft really gives your projects lots of pizzazz.  I used Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue to attach the Flower Soft.

Here’s a close-up photo of the flower soft on my card.
Here is a photo of the inside of my card.

I used Core’dinations cardstock for the Tree.  And I used American Crafts Specialty Cardstock/Foil for the bottom layer of the pumpkin.  I wanted to look like a candle was inside of it.  What do you think? (Both the Tree & pumpkin were cut with my Cricut using SCAL2 Software.)
Here is the Front of my Card.
The sweet image and background are Digital Stamps (La La Land & Make It Crafty).  I used Prisma Colored Pencils for all my coloring except for the skin tones.  I used Copic Markers for the skin.  I love glitter & on most of my cards you will see some Stickles.  I love that glitter glue. The three I used: Lime Green, Orange Peel, & Crystal.  The background on the background digital image was colored with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I used Copic markers on the fence and grass.
Additional elements used to create my card came from my private stash.
I hope you enjoyed viewing the details of my card.  And I especially hope that I inspired you in some way.  If you have any questions on what you have read or viewed please leave them in the comments portion and I will reply there.  Thank you and have a wonderful week ahead!
