Monster hugs

This is my first monster card and I loved making it along with my son.

I am Playing along with a couple of challenges with this card:

  1. The sketch is based on Freshly made Sketches Challenge #309
  2. The colors are based on cas color and sketch challenge #245
  3. The monster theme is inspired by the Less is more challenge #351

For this card we used the monster stampset by Mudra stamps. We first stamped our fav monsters on neenah solar white card stock with memento black ink and then colored those adorable monsters with copic markers.

The red one was colored by my son and the other two were colored by me.  Then came the fun part of sticking the googly eyes on the monsters which adds so much interest. I used the image colored by my son to decorate my craft table (its a cute reminder of the fun we had together).

Then i took a white card stock and embossed it with an embossing folder. I also white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of navy card stock.

To finish the card i stuck all the elements in place using foam tape for dimension.



I had lots of fun creating this card, especially because i did it along with my son. Crafting with kids is always fun.

I am linking this card to other challenges as well:

Thanks so much for dropping by, hope you liked the card.

Have a great day

  1. An impressively coloured and super eye-catching monster card. Love that neon pink colour in particular! The design is full of white space and lovely clean lines although we do prefer to see an area of ‘un-patterned’ white space at Less is More and although your textured embossing folder creates wonderful texture perhaps just using it on a small area of the card wouldn’t distract too much. Sorry to be fussy but I think you may have linked to 6 challenges here whereas 5 is our maximum at Less is More, including out own. I’m delighted that you shared your card in our gallery this week and do hope you’ll play along again with us sometime. Sarah (Less is More DT)
