Frank -N- Bride

All of the wonderful Halloween crafts that I have been seeing online have gotten me in the Halloween mood. I thought it would be fun to create a wedding themed Halloween card. I have never been to a Halloween themed wedding but if I ever get invited to one then I will have a card design.

This card actually came about by accident. I was looking for Halloween images, I saw Frankenstein and the Bride and everything evolved from there.

 The card is a 6x6 S-fold card. The orange card base is from Recollections and the striped paper is from K & Company. All of the cuts are from Paper Doll Dress Up. Frank and his bride were cut at 4" from green card stock. I hid the faces on the cuts and stamped them with Peachy Keen Stamps; Happy New Year for Frank and Laffy Taffy for the Bride. I added some cheeks on both with green chalk and used a black gel pen for Frank's scar. I used a white gel pen to fill in the eyes for both, added some purple glitter glue to her eye lids and Glossy Accents to her lips.

For the clothing I cut some of the pieces from the bride and groom cuts to give them a little wedding look. Frank's tux jacket, shirt and bow tie came from the groom and her veil and shoes came from the bride. All other clothing and accessories came from the Frankenstein and the Bride cuts. I used a white gel pen on his suit and her hair and Glossy accents to the shoes. I embossed her dress with the zebra embossing folder and added some black glitter glue to the dress and veil. The orange pearls on the veil are from my stash.

I cut the moon out by hand and added eyes to the bat with a red pearl pen. The sentiment came from two different stamps in the MPS Happiest Moments stamp set.

I added a yellow mat to the inside of the card. I hung the spider from a piece of twine, added green glitter glue for the eyes and added some doodling with a white gel pen.

Hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it!
