Paper Players CAS 509 - Too Cute to Spook.


 Hello and Welcome!

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge.  The focus was on: Pets.

Clean and Simple is really hard for me as I like to add lots of different layers/elements to my cards.  I started out with an idea and got frustrated so I put it away and decided not to do the challenge. (Does that ever happen to you?) - Then I was going through some cards that people have sent me and found a layout that I liked so I decided to try again.

Here is my card:

I had bought some really cute designer paper from DCWV - Pets and Pumpkins and wanted to make a Halloween card using it. I mounted the patterned paper on a small strip of Basic Black and layered it to an Old Olive card base.

I stamped the cat (Amuse Studio - Too Cute to Spook) with Versamark Ink and embossed it with Black Diamond embossing powder - Judi Kins on white card stock. I created the tag using an old SU Corner rounder punch.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped with Old Olive ink.

I tied some sparkly white/orange twine to the tag and mounted it on the card with foam tape. - Pretty easy and quick to do if you wanted to create a bunch of cards.

Mind you a lot of my stuff has probably been retired or companies have went out of business but I'm sure you could find similiar products elsewhere if you want to recreate this card idea.


  1. I like it a lot. That patterned paper is adorable
