Hello Kitty Halloween Card

I was 'enabled' into buying some gilding flakes by a very nice lady I met at the GNPE in Harrogate.  She told me how easy they were to use and that I didn't need any special glue, etc. and indeed they looked gorgeous on all her projects.

They were the first thing I wanted to try but when I opened the box, it was like a mini explosion of foil flakes EVERYWHERE!  Jamming the lid back on, I googled 'gilding flakes' and found a tutorial here for a mosaic card background.   Love it!   She recommends decanting the flakes immediately to a larger container. Great tip!

 What a cool technique and one I will use again with my scraps.

Here's the front of G's card.   Kitty comes from the Hello Kitty Greetings cart and the font I used for the sentiment is from Cherry Limeade.

I used my Technique Tuesday zip die on the inside so that G can access the gift card from one of her favorite stores, Target.  I usually have a ton of little gifts for them but it wasn't happening this year!  Hope she likes it.

The challenge over at FCCB is Halloween projects.  There's tons of inspiration from the DT and the challenge entries.  Check it out!     

Thanks for visiting with me!   Happy Halloween!   Christine  : )
