Too Early for Halloween??

I have been enjoying perusing Dawn Griffiths blog... I have been inspired to try many of the cards that she has showcased. This is one of them.....

Is he not the cutest ever!!! I love him!! This was the easiest card ever. Now Dawn used the This Way arrows punch from Stampin' Up! - not a punch I have, so I used the dog tag looking punch, the name escapes me at the moment. I think this looks more authentic of Frankenstien, the knobby things on his neck. Who could ever be afraid of this little guy!?

Supplies: Old Olive cut at 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2. Lavendar Lace 4 1/4 by approximately 2", and cut the jagged "hairline" - (2) 1 1/4" white circles, (1) 1 1/4" Old Olive circle cut in half, (2) 1" black circles, (1) Old Olive circle cut in half, (2) Going Grey dog tags. Adhere hair to top of card close to score line. Adhere black circles to white circles and adhere below hairline. Soften the edges with Old Olive and sponge of half the 1 inch Old Olive circle and adhere between the eyes for his nose. Soften the edges of the two halves of the 1 1/4" Old Olive circles. Back with dimensional adhesive and place over the eyes. With a black marker draw a line for the mouth with stitch lines. Place another "scar" where his cheek is. Adhere the Going Grey tags to either side of his "neck." With a white gel pen or other white marker to add a bit of detail in his eyes - his twinkle. Done!

Now, Dawn had a stamp that I can't remember what it's called, I don't personally have the set, but it has a sentiment that says: Friend. Good. Frankenstien --I wanted to re-create something like that, so I found a dollar stamp that says Friends, but blocked off the s.

I hope you like it!!!

Melissa, he is so cute. He does look easy to make. I'm going to try it and send him out for Halloween cards. Thanks for the idea.
