Monster Mash Blog Hop with Especially Yours Blog

Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut!

Today the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut have teamed up to share with you all sorts of spooktacular monster-themed projects to help get your crafty gears turning for all those upcoming Halloween projects!

If you've come from
Pam's blog, you're in the right place!

If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Ashley at Made Especially For You.

For my project, I created a candy corn monster card.  The project cuts are 4.25 inches, using the card feature and adding layers.  For interest, I included some fun pearl adhesive jewelry and bows on her shoes. I used a black pen to add faux stitching as well...
