I’ve been making lots of cards lately, but this is only my second Halloween Card! I made this Halloween Hello Kitty Card using a sketch for inspiration, and it turned out adorable! Quality, not quantity, right??? I’m not sure who I’ll send it to, but I know it will put a smile on someone’s face.
I saw this sketch from Skipping Stones Design over at Feline Playful. I already had the idea of using the Hello Kitty Witch from the Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge, and when I saw this sketch, I thought….OOoooh! That might work!
I had to do some shuffling around to get it the way I wanted, but I got it work out great. That’s the wonderful thing about sketches….you don’t have to follow them exactly. You use them as a guide to get ideas.
Halloween Hello Kitty Card Instructions
I cut out the 2 1/2″ Hello Kitty using the Cricut Expressions. I don’t suggest cutting it any smaller. The smallest pieces are really tiny! One little yellow sliver is the size of a sesame seed, and that little stinker was hard to hold onto so I could glue it. I used the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities to make the scalloped oval. I inked the edges of the oval with tangerine Cat’s Eye Ink.
I originally put the card together vertically just like the sketch, but the oval covered most of the orange patterned paper. After fiddling with it for a few minutes, I decided to turn it landscape, and it looked much better! To finish it off, I added We R Memory Keepers orange Baker’s Twine.
The Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge has the Hello Kitty character for lots of holidays including Easter, Christmas, and Halloween. They make such sweet cards! There are also other great shapes on this cartridge like a snowman, butterfly, strawberry, flowers, butterfly, and cherries.
