Monster Cards

All these cards measure 4.75ins x 4.47ins, and are made using a white linen effect, hand cut card blank.
I am going slightly down in the size for my square cards because I have a big pile of envelopes that need/should be used up before I buy any more! I am becoming soooooo budget conscious!
The centre panel measures approximately 3.5 inches x 3.5 inches and is mat and layered on a dusty blue card.
The monster stickers, some with googly eyes are from Paperchase, they cost £1.50 for 24 mixed designs , so hopefully I can get 6 cards from one packet.
I put one monster on a 1.5ins square of Bazzill card and set them at a jaunty angle, before adding a faux stitch edging and a few dots here and there with either a white gel pen or black fine liner.
But when I had finished I thought something was missing and then remembered The Duke’s ancient Dymo label maker, with which I made strips that either said “grrrrrr” or “rawr” which were perfect for just filling in the odd gap and setting off the design.
