Hocus Pocus Card by Florence

Morning everyone

Today I am using the new Hocus Pocus stamp set. 

Although these are Halloween stamps they can easily be used for other occasions.

I would like to share with you an idea for a little persons birthday card.

This would also work as child's party invitation just by changing the sentiment.


 Please click on the image enlarge.

To make this card

Stamp the creature onto a piece of white card, color the image and cut it out.
Stamp just the tail onto a piece of white card and cut it out but include an extra piece at the one end of the tail for attaching purposes.
Die cut or cut out by hand the number.
Stamp a pattern onto the number and add a little Distress Ink to the edges
Glue the tail onto the back of the number so that just the front of tail shows.
Stamp and emboss the sentiment onto a piece of pretty paper or card.
Mat and layer the card.
Attach the number (with the tail attached) using foam pads.
Attach the creature also using foam pads.

Do check out all of the amazing creations from the team.

Thank you for looking

Happy Stamping
