Frankie

Frankie goes trick-or-treating!

Ahhh Frank. What's Halloween without our favorite monster?

Lettering Delights recently introduced their new Frankly Frank collection and it wasn't until today that I had a chance to make a card with it. There are just too many new LD stuff to keep up!


I decided to keep it simple this time. Today's project is a basic A2-size (4.25" x 5.5") hybrid card with a print-and-cut base and a paper-pieced main image. Instead of printing the sentiment onto the base/background, I decided to put it onto a banner and have Frankie hold it up instead.


Here is how the card looks like on the virtual mat. Using Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, I print-and-cut the card base and the banner. Frankie was cut out on colored cardstock and paper-pieced (a.k.a. layered).


Once I figured out the overall design, the actual card came together very quickly. This is because the card base was print-and-cut and Frankie himself was easy to assemble. In fact, it felt somewhat anti-climatic when I finished so I decided to make a couple more.

Everyone, meet Frankie, Franken, and Frank. *giggle*

Will the real Frankie please stand up?

Here are the files that I used to make the card(s):

Files used:
Frankie: Frankly Friends Cut Its
Pennant: Knit Wits Socktober Cut Its
Background: Frankly Friends Paper Pack
Sentiment: LD Masking Tape font

To round off the corners, I used my trusty old Corner Chomper.

And that's all that there is to it. :-)

  6. So-VERY-cute! I'm new to your site and still waiting on my Silhouette to be shipped. I see texture on your paper. Is the texture on your cardstock paper or is it in the digital paper? What cardstock are you using to print your cards on?
