Spooky Mail


This is today's post for Oddball Art Co 

This morning I got up pretty early to join in with a Zoom Craft and Chat with the UK Stampers Network. Claire was showing us how to make a 'cat in a box' card...the idea is that a cat has got into a cardboard box - one that might have come through the mail...

The box is made from a small strip of kraft card scored and folded and glued. A strip is stuck inside to add the 'cat' to. The box will fold flat to go in an envelope - or even as part of a card. My first version was this using a nutcracker image.

Later on I moved onto 'mark 2' putting my box into a card base. I started with a kraft card blank, matted with a paper from a BoBunny Timepiece 6x6 paper pad. I used vintage photo Distress ink around the edges. On top of this I placed a scrap of paper stamped with a Happy Post stamp - not sure where I got this from.

Inside is the box with added Distress Ink and a scrap of paper stamped with the Happy Post again.

In the box is Skeleton Cat CCC 40 coloured with markers and cut out.

I then added more paper to the inside of the card base.

And finally some images from CCC136 Spooky Mail, cut out and with a touch of paint pen.
