I make absolutely no claim to this idea. If you look on http://www.splitcoaststamper.com/ and search Frankie, you will find a whole bunch of versions. I combined many of those and made slight variations to make mine. We did this card at my recent Stamp Camp and everyone LOVED it!!!
- Fold the Pumpkin Pie card stock in half, using the bone folder to get a sharp crease. Then, fold back one side to make the “z-fold card.” Adhere Basic Black card stock on either side of the center fold.
- Stamp “Happy Halloween” on the bottom of the z-fold side with Whisper White Craft Ink. Let dry.
- Punching out your pieces… A) Use the Big Shot Machine and the Top Note Die to die-cut one and a half Top Notes: Lovely Lilac 2.5x5” and Green Galore 4x5“. B) Punch TWO 1 ¼” Whisper White circles. C) Punch TWO 1” Basic Black circles. D) Punch ONE 1-3/8” Green Galore Circle. E) Punch ONE Green Galore Large Oval.
- Putting “Frankie” together: A) Cut his hair using the Paper Snips. With Lovely Lilac Ink, stamp “dots” all over hair. Adhere, leaving the bangs without any SNAIL on them. B) Eyes…Adhere Basic Black circles to Whisper White and using the Singo White Gel Pen add two lines to eyes. Cut Green Galore circle in half, ink with Green Galore ink pad and adhere as eyelids. Adhere entire eye underneath bangs. C) Nose…Cut the Green Galore large oval in half and then a bit on the sides. Adhere askew. D) Add stitches with journaling tip of Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.
- Adhere Frankie to the top of card. Make sure the z-fold is under his face, not his hair to allow the card to open and shut.
