Day 14 of Great Card Giveaway
If you already checked here and found nothing for today, it's because some computer maintenance was being done.
Today's card is the first of its kind in the world, for more reasons than one. The big first is, it's the first ever dignified, serious, sedate, calm,
quiet Halloween greeting ever put together by mankind. Or womankind, in this case.
You may well ask to whom you might send such a card if you wanted to make one. I'm not really sure. How about Auntie Matilda? Or Cousin Melvin? Of course there's always the Pope.
I wanted to show how a small stamp can be used in a big way. The candy treat stamp from october pumpkin is usually used to decorate an envelope, or as a motif in the middle of some embellishment, a tag or bookmark, etc. Today I'm illustrating how a small stamp can be used effectively on a card - or really anywhere that a border would be needed.
October is half over and you don't want to miss out, so enter today!
