OK lets get started. Today I'm bringing back two of the Sweet Gothic Kids from the Birthday Line. I decided to turn these Birthday images into Halloween images. I chose to do this because my birthday is 2 weeks before Halloween and ever since I can remember, I've always had my birthday associated with the holiday. When I was a kid, I wanted my birthday to be on the 31st. I always thought it would be a lot more fun and sound cool (lol) if I could say "Yup my birthday is on Halloween." However, I grew up and realized that was never going to be :( but it seemed like that memo didn't get to everyone. All my friends still like to give me Halloween related gifts. I even received an Orange Halloween cake on my 21st bday instead of a regular birthday cake. lol. So after that I gave in and accepted the fact that even though my birthday isn't on the 31st, most people wont care and will prefer to buy me a black and orange cake as oppose to a tacky pink frilly pretty one, lol! :)
My project for you today is a Box Card. It features of my fave SGK gals, Wednesday. Don't you just love how sassy she looks. I sure do. To make one of these, you can find the tutorial Here.
Materials Used: Prismacolor Pencils and last years K&Co Halloween Paper
The Card Box looks like a card from the front but once opened, it opens up into a small box where you can have a card and a small treat (of your choosing) in there. These are simple and cute to make. I do recommend you try it out the first time with a scratch cs just so you get the feel for it.
For the moment, I only have my card in there, therefore the card box isn't bulky. I was half way done creating a bookmark with Sally but time got the best of me ;) so I will save it for a later day. If you choose to add several items, note that it will be bulky so make sure that when you create the belly band, you do not make it snug. If you do so, you will not be able to slide it over the card box and have close it up.
Here's my birthday/Halloween card. It features my other fave SGK gal, Tilly.
I just love coloring non traditional hair colors on my images. As some of you may know, I've been hoping to one day take the plunge and have my hair (or at least my tips died pink, purple or teal) I may one day be courageous to do it but so far it hasn't happen. Just call me chicken. Lol.
OK so in honor of today's Toot Toot Thursday: Tilly, Wednesday and the rest of the Sweet Gothic Birthday Kids are on SALE. They have been slashed down to $4.00.
