Halloween is on a Monday this year and I’ll be counting down to Halloween with a new Halloween project on Mondays until October 31st.
For this week’s Halloween Mondays project I created a Monsters Door Slimline card with the dies from the Warm Welcome Bundle. These doors are super cute and I couldn’t resist making a card inspired my the movie Monsters Inc. and the doors were perfect to use on a Slimline Card. I used the Alphabest Bundle to create sentiments spelling out “boo” and “kitty” to continue with the movie theme.
Start with a Highland Heather cardstock slimline card base. Cut a Pool Party cardstock panel and an Early Espresso cardstock strip for the top rail for the doors. Glue the panel to the card base and then glue the strip to the top of the card front.
Die cut (Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Polished Pink, Highland Heather, Basic White, & Petal Pink cardstock) doors with the Warm Welcome dies. Die cut (Petal Pink, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, & Highland Heather) door knobs (3 of each type) with the Warm Welcome dies and glue them to the doors. Use a sponge dauber to add a little Crumb Cake ink to the doors. Stamp the large flower from the Cup of Tea stamp set in 2nd generation (stamped off) Highland Heather ink on the Basic White cardstock door. Use the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker to add ink to the small flower stamp from the Cup of Tea stamp set once full strength and once 2nd generation (stamped off) on the Basic White cardstock door. Add 2nd generation (stamped off) Highland Heather ink to the smallest flower from the Cup of Tea stamp set with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Marker to the Basic White cardstock door. Color the center of the flowers with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and add Wink of Stella to the flowers for sparkle. Glue the doors slightly overlapping and askew to the card front making sure both top corners are on the Early Espresso cardstock top strip.
Use the Alphabest stamp set to spell out the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Basic White cardstock. Stamp the overlay from the Alphabest stamp set in 2nd generation (stamped off) Tahitian Tide ink and Highland Heather ink over the sentiment letters. The punch out the letters with the Best Label punch and use paper snips to trim off the excess white around the stamped image. Punch out Early Espresso cardstock label layers with the Best Label punch. Add the sentiment letters to the label layers with a Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add the sentiment labels to the top left side of the card front with glue dots. Add Iridescent rhinestones to the card front and the flowers on the door.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. I first added strips of cardstock (Crumb Cake, Polished Pink, Highland Heather, & Petal Pink) to the inside and back of the card. I then stamped the sentiment with the Alphabest stamp set to the bottom right of the inside panel above the cardstock strips. Finally stamp the flowers from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
