Today's card is a bit saucy, but I love how it came out!! With sentiments like "have a fangtastic birthday" this Dracula Bite Me stamp set from Whimsy Stamps would work well for a Halloween or October birthday card.
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same white cardstock and stamped the vampire lips in red ink randomly. I then heat embossed the lips with clear embossing powder so the image is slightly glossy and raised. I cut a 4" x 3" piece of vellum cardstock and adhered it directly to the center of the card with vellum adhesive. Vellum helps to slightly mute the background in the middle so the words can stand out.
I die cut the words "Bite Me" using the Bold ABC letter dies from Whimsy Stamps. I cut these letter three times so that I could layer them for dimension. The first two layers were cut from black cardstock and the third (top layer) was cut from black glitter cardstock. I adhered the layers of the word "bite me" together with a fine tip liquid adhesive. Then I adhered the letters directly to the vellum. I stamped the vampire in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut the sentiment using the Comic Speech Bubbles die set. I adhered the vampire and sentiment to the card using 3M foam adhesive for more dimension.
I loved this fun Dracula Bite Me stamp set so much that I created a second card:
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Weird-O Frame die set from Whimsy Stamps, I cut the frame from red cardstock. I placed a piece of paper from the 6" x 6" Vampire paper back behind the red Weird-O frame. I stamped the vampire in Memento Tuxedo black ink and then colored the image with Copic Markers. I fussy cut the vampire out (there is no coordinating die).
I stamped a variety of the sentiments in Tuxedo Memento Black ink on white cardstock and then die cut the sentiments using the Comic Speech Bubbles die set. I placed them randomly on the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
I have some October birthday's coming up, so I think I'll make a version of one these cards this year to send to family and friends.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
