Something other than Christmas

Happy Wednesday stampers!  I have been looking at some cards that I made this summer and decided to show you a Halloween card that I made this year.  This is very little stamping on this card.  I made most of it from stickers from Sandy Lion.  My sister bought these stickers for me two years when they were on clearance after Halloween.  I searched the web for Dracula sayings and I am going to show you my finished product.  My sister gave one of these to a coworker to give to his 11 year old and it was a big hit.

The card base is made from purple card stock, it is standard size.  The panel is red card stock, I just matched the red and purple together to make sure I liked the way they looked together.  I printed the sentiment on the computer in red ink and then trimmed it down to make it fit.  I sponged some red on the edges of both sentiments.  The one thing I did that I really like and I wasn't sure good it would show up in the pictures but I think you should be able to see it.  I found this stamp in the $1 bin at Michael's,  I love it because it looks like something dripping down the wall.  For this card, I like to think it looks like blood.  The front of the card has a sticker of Count Dracula (and his eyes are red jewels that didn't photograph well) as well as the bats that on front. They also have red jewels for eyes and they feel like they are felt.  I printed "Blood Donors Wanted" for the front of my card, sponged the ink and then adhered the sentiment to the card, then I took my "bleeding" stamp, I stamped it above the sentiment and again below it.  I embossed it with clear embossing powder.  On the inside the card says, "see the count"  also printed on the computer and the "bleeding" is stamped in VersaMark.  The other sentiment is "Halloween Wishes"  that didn't show up very good.  This is a wood mounted stamp by Northwoods that I got at Archivers.  I love this card and it is good for kids or guys.  Thanks for stopping by and keep calm and craft on.
