PTI Make It Monday #83: Card Aisle Inspiration - Take 2

In this week's Make It Monday, Melissa Phillips shares a fantastic video showcasing a fun inspiration source, the card aisle at your local store!  If you would like to check it all out for yourself, you can find out about it here.

I usually avoid the card aisle at all cost, since I am, after all, a card maker ... but it was kind of neat to browse through the aisle with a different purpose in mind.  I was surprised to find that only a few cards caught my eye for this challenge.  Here is one of them:

For my version, I used a shimmer bluish/violet paper for the background to represent a dark sky, some shimmer green die cut grass for Mr. Bones to stand in, and "BOO" die cut out of shimmer orangish paper backed with PTI's black card stock.

I did a little surgery on Mr. Bones to get his arms to go up in the air to hold up the "O".  :)

The various layers are adhered with foam adhesive for some extra dimension.

PTI supplies include Black and Stampers Select White card stock, black ink, and the Mr. Bones stamp & die sets.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!


  1. This is adorable. I love that Mr. Bones is sooo cute!!

  2. TOOOOO cute. I love your card much more than the ghost card.

  3. Cute,cute,cute! Your card is way better than the store card!
