Piece Of Poison Halloween Card and SUO Challenges #25

Hi Blogging Friends!!!
I made this card as a make and take. I love all the new Halloween stamp sets, that is the reason I have entered this card into the SUO Challenge "New Favorite Stamp Set". I have all the new Halloween Stamp sets already... for me Halloween can not come soon enough. Only 79 days until Halloween.

That rat stamp is very realistic.

Measurements for this card:
1 pc Peach for base of card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
1 pc Black 4 1/16 x 5 5/16
1 pc DSP 3 15/16 x 5 1/8
1 pc Vanilla for Image 2 x 4 1/4
1 pc black behind image 2 3/16 x 4 7/16
1 pc Vanilla for words 4 x 5/8
1 pc DSP for flower 12 x 1
 Vanilla Circle punch for rat 1 3/8
Peach Circle punch 1 1/2

I scored the accordion flower at 1/4 of an inch, the DSP is 12 x 1 inch. I used a hot glue gun to put it onto my card, but first glued it to a black 1 1/2 Circle. I just did not want it to fall off... and let me tell you its on there really good.

I really love that font on the Trick or Treat stamp, I wish I had it for my blog... that would be so cool.

Here is my make and take ready to go. I have the Scallop and the 1 1/2 inch circles already punched out and inside a SU Button container.

Punches 1 3/8, 1 1/2 Circles and Small Scallop, Sponge dauber,

Very nice! "The rat stamp is very realistic," you say. I say it's kind of creepy! I guess that makes it realistic! I just hopped on over here from Stampin' Connection. If you have time, check out my blog at -Julie

This is awesome (although that rat may be just a little TOO realistic!). So glad you joined us at SUO Challenges!

Very cool! You classed up the rat with the accordion fold.
