It's a "40" likes on Facebook post....

Hello everyone, welcome to a Thursday post.  With Halloween coming up this Friday, I had 2 personal Dia de los Muertos cards to get out.  I have a life long love of coloring.  Did you know that many craft stores carry coloring books for adults? I didn't until this summer on an excursion to Craft Warehouse in Salem.  I picked up 3 of them, mostly for Zentangle (which I still as yet have not started).  The one I used for the card is this.


Next step is to color.  I made several copies on heavy Georgia Pacific 110# white card stock which you can find at Walmart.  I made several because I keep one for the final coloring and the others are to test colors on.  So here is what I came up with for the final and then I shrunk it down to fit on an A2 cards.


I scanned the reduced skull into MTC and did a print and cut.  (I wasn't about to hand cut this one)  Next I started the card design portion of this project.  Here is what I came up with for the official cards to send to loved ones.



This inside is the same for each cards.  I did a modified print and cut using Make the Cut (MTC) software.  

So how's that for a Monday post?  I hope to do more posting as the Christmas bazaar cards start to get finished.  

May you have special memories fill you on Dia de los Muertos!  

Bright blessings, Jana
