Merry Creepmas - 12DOC ....

.... Morning.  Goodness, we've reached day 9 of 12 Days of Creepmas, sponsored by Smeared Ink. I'm having such fun making cards that combine elements of Halloween and Christmas.  I think I've only made one really scary card, most of the rest of my cards are on the quirky side, rather than scary.  Here's today's card:

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Jolly Jester 2016; Paper Source - Joy & Cheer
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Perfect Plum
Dies: Lil Inkers - Dual Stitched Ovals - #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Violet Crush; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear, Silver; Sakura Stardust - Purple

I've used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#152 for the layout of my card.  I used some design paper that coordinates with the colours I used on the Jester.  I cut out the image using a die and added some paper flags to the back of the image (I didn't want to hide the Jester) and adhered him to the card base.  I used a shimmer pen to add little dots around the image.  I finished the front with a simple greeting that I printed on Safmat (a Letraset product) which goes on clear.  On the inside I used another piece of design paper for the mat and added a simple, bold Christmas greeting.

We're almost at the end of term for Kat - she can hardly wait.  Poor girl is so tired.  High School in the States, well here in Michigan, starts really early - she's in school about 6.50am and classes start about 7.15am.  I think all her friends are really looking forward to two weeks off school.  And Jonathan finishes work on Friday too!  That's when our Christmas starts!!!  That's all for now.  Byeee!
