Mummy Easel Card

Howdy Crafters!
I have been gone for a bit recovering from eye surgery- I am doing much better and the Doctor has given me permission to return to the computer and start crafting again! Happy Dance!!

Today's card creation is from another Sizzix die set I purchased this year for 99 cents! Also, the pumpkin die cut was in a package of 3 die cuts for 99 cents. What a bargain!

I do like how this mummy die cuts - you merely have to highlight the line cuts on the mummy's body if you want the lines more define - the cut looks fine without the highlights as well - thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day! ~ Gail ~
