"I love you to pieces!" card

Hi everybody, I am on a roll!! Here is another challenge entry.

This time the challenge is hosted by Paula over at More Than Favors.  It's for the Cartridge Chaos Challenge. The cartridge this week is Mini Monsters.  With two young boys, monsters come easy for us, but I really had to think about this one.  I made a Valentine card for my oldest son, he's eight and had a monster themed party last year! :)

I cut the skeleton at 3 3/4" (and all his layers) but I added the 1/2" heart from Create a Critter.  The mask and heart are added with pop dots.

Here you can see how the card opens (it's a Z fold card) and I cut two shadow layers for the skeleton so that you have a place to write on the inside of the card.

See how it opens up?

I used some Crayola card stock for the bg paper.  It looks like all the hearts were hand-drawn! :) I attached some crafters string to the left side under my sentiment label. I printed the sentiment on my computer using Pea Shelia font at 22 points. Lastly I added some gel pen stitches.

Thanks so much for visiting me here at  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl
