Evie's First Halloween

Halloween is tomorrow, and I'm happy to say I got all my treats delivered and mailed in time! This is the Halloween card I made for my granddaughter's first Halloween. She just turned 6 months old and is still too young to understand, but of course gramma just had to make her a card anyway!

Kept it simple by making a center step style card.

The svg cutting file for this cute paper pieced kitty is a retired freebie from Kadoodle Bug Designs. Used an oval stitched die behind little kitty and added an oval scalloped frame created in Make the cut.

Fancy label template is also a freebie, from Make a Wedding blog. I used DJ Doodlers font with the label template to do a print and cut, then added a shadow layer cut from Best Creations black glitter cardstock plus a couple flatback rhinestone flowers for some fun bling.

Here's our sentiment inside the card. Cute Halloween patterned paper comes from Doodlebug Designs' Halloween Parade collection.

And finally, the treats for our furbaby's doggie pals... isn't that skeleton plush toy the cutest?

Orange handled gift bags decorated with Pochacco were made to put the doggie treats in. I started with a coloring book image of Pochacco sitting to create a cut file in Make the Cut, then added the witch's hat from Designs On Cloud Nine's Halloween Kitty file, and the jack o lantern from Kadoodlebug Design's Candy Corn Witch file.

This year our little Latte got to take Halloween pictures with a new "friend", our granddaughter! Lol! So much fun trying to get the two of them to look toward the camera and smile at the same time! Happy Halloween, everyone!

Oh my, Evie is adorable and so cute in her costume! What a precious granddaughter you have. She may be only 6 months old but I would bet that she gave you a big smile when she saw her cute pumpkin kitty card. TFS your wonderful and inspiring Halloween projects and the pics of Evie and Latte!
