World Card Making Day - Halloween Boy

I still have some projects to share from the crafting retreat I went to with my creative crew in September, however, today I'm showing you something I made for World Card Making Day.  As part of the Smiley Team for Kards for Kids at Toronto's Sick Kids Hospital, I won a couple of stamps for participating in the challenges.  One of them was this spider boy from Your Next Stamp.  So, I decided to drum up a Halloween card for the kids.

I coloured the stamped image with my Copic Markers and cut him out by hand.  I made the wooden plank background from a tutorial on Stamp TV.  (Click here to watch the tutorial yourself!)  I was quite jazzed to find a way to make a masculine background.  It is so fast and easy too!

I added cardstock paper buttons to my card which is one of my Accucut Craft dies.  The sentiment (which came with the stamp) is cut from some Lifesytle Crafts die cut frames.

In honour of World Card Making Day, The Kards for Kids team has some challenges posted: a fall themed card, a red and white Christmas card and a snowman card.  Check out the challenges there and enter today!
