Happy Halloween & Día de Los Muertos!

Happy Holiday weekend! In the US we celebrate Halloween today (October 31) and tomorrow is the beginning of Día de Los Muertos. I made this card a few weeks ago and I've been saving it for today! This is a Congratulations/Wedding card that one of my friends asked me to make for her. I had so much fun piecing it together and I sure hope you like it!

I used the skulls from the Boo to You stamp set and the matching framelits to cut out the cute little skulls. I had fun layering bright colors with glimmer paper and gold foil to get a funky, fun and classy card (c'mon, it's totally classy, right?). 

I used some of the new gold cording to add some extra detail and a bow for the bride. The hat on the groom is cut using the witches hat from the Boo to You Framelits Dies. I cut it out and lopped the top off to create this fun fedora-ish looking hat. I had so much fun making the eyes for both the bride and groom. I used lots of itty-bitty punches and topped the pieces off with rhinestones. What a fun look!

I thought that the font from the Timeless Love stamp set went perfectly with this card. I embossed it in gold and called it a day!

If you are celebrating Halloween this weekend I wish you so much fun! Stay safe and don't make yourselves sick on candy!

To all of those celebrating Dia de Los Muertos this weekend, I wish you a weekend of wonderful, loving memories as you pray for, respect and remember your loved ones.

Enjoy your weekend everybody!
-Maria
