Dia de Los Muertos

I will be sharing this card on the Altered Pages blog with the  Design Team for Dia De Los Muertos.   Thought I would let you all know Altered Pages has some wonderful collage sheets for Day of the Dead.

When you order the collage sheets you are sent the file via email and you save it to your computer.  The beauty of it is... you can print your images over and over and over again.

Black Cardstock
Card Base
Black Marker
Cut skull images from Altered Pages Day of the Dead Collage Sheet.  Adhere the skulls to a thin piece of chipboard with Glue Stick and fussy cut.

With a black marker line the edges of the skulls so all white edges and chipboard are covered.  Adhere Dew Drops with Tacky Glue to the images.

Adhere colorful Flowers to the back of the skulls with Tacky Glue.
With Double Sided Tape adhere black cardstock mat to the card base, cut mat from Sabor Paper - Corazon, adhere to card.
Assemble card: with Tacky Glue attach black Bazzill Borders, then the "Te AMO" doves from the Sabor Cut-outs. 

Mat the "Dia de Los Muertos" banner on black cardstock and adhere with Glue Stick.

Attach skulls with 3D Mounting Squares.  Add additional Sabor Cut-outs as desired.

These skulls fascinate me.
I've not colored any of them
but I think they are wonderful.
