Design Tips

Mary Rudakas

  • I inked the edges of Dracula’s cape in black, which added a nice touch.
  • For the candy buckets, be sure and “Break Apart” top layer and delete the jack o’ lantern faces.  At this tiny size they probably wouldn’t cut very well.
  • For the cute faces, you could draw simple faces with a black felt-tipped pen or even use googly eyes.  I used the Monster Mash Face Assortment by Peachy Keen Stamps.  For the jack o’ lantern candy buckets, I used the 3/8″ faces from the assortment.  For the Lil’ Peeps faces, I used the 5/8″ stamps from the assortment.  You could even use the plain “Everyday Character” faces from Peachy Keen to make your Lil’ Peeps look more like cute kids who are dressed up.
  • My black ink pad didn’t stamp as dark as I would have liked.  I think I need to pick up a new one next time I’m at the craft store!
  • I used leftover paper from 2009 for the card base.  First I cut out and assembled my Lil’ Peeps and then I held them up against various papers to choose the paper for the oval first.  Then put that up against other papers to choose your zig-zag paper and then your card base.
  • If you have some of the “cute” character faces from Peachy Keen, it’d be fun to make other Lil’ Peeps for this card instead for more of a cute card – maybe the Princess, the Bee and the Jack O’ Lantern Free SVG!

I hope you have fun with your final Halloween preparations!  If you’re feeling crafty, there’s still time to make some party decorations or treat bags for special trick-or-treaters or even cards!  Happy crafting!
