Sugar Skull

July 28, 2016

When I bought Lawn Fawn’s Peace Joy Love stamp set, my kiddos took one look at it and loved the skeleton face they saw. It took me about two minutes to see what they saw, and now I can’t un-see it. So, I finally made a card with that idea in mind.



Size: Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by making the skull. I die cut a stitched circle, then using a smaller stitch circle I notched the edges so it looked more skull shaped. I am not totally in love with the end result, but it gets the idea across. Next, I stamped all of the black images on the skull. I added the scallops to the eyes with a thin black Sharpie. The nose is an upside down heart. I added the colorful decorations next. I used colored ink for the solid images and traced around them in the same thin black Sharpie to keep things consistent. I colored everything in with colored pencils. I also went over the colored images with colored pencils.

I used black card stock for the card base. Using Versa Mark ink and silver embossing powder, I created the background. I also embossed the sentiment on the card base and messed it up. So I fixed it by stamping the sentiment on a separate strip of cardstock and popping it up on fun foam. I also popped the skull up on fun foam.
