Hallowe'en Friends!

Posted by Ruth at 7:00 AM
This past Sunday I was at a Close to My Heart party hosted by Leisa (who just happens to be my new upline!). We did a great Hallowe'en themed page with the Hooligan paper pack. While enjoying conversation and food with friends I was playing around with one of the punches on the table and suddenly I thought... hey, this would make neat spikey hair.

The rest, as they say, is history. Things just fell into place for making this neat card. The bolts on his neck are actually the tops of the letter T from Rustic Alphabet (also from CTMH). The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "Smarty Pants". The paper is from CTMH's "Hooligan" paper pack. The eyes and ribbon came from a friend's craft stash.

When I used the edge punch on the hair I made sure to do so before folding the card. That way when it's folded there's a bit of overlap... giving the hair body and bounce. Well maybe not bounce, but still.

If I had one of those "faces" stamp sets that the punch art people use, I might have been able to do nose and mouth, but this worked! I can see using this style for other cards too.
