This week I am getting into the Halloween spirit by doing – what else? – making a card, of course! I was inspired by the comical, little, one-eyed monster, Mike Wazowski, from the movie Monsters, Inc. My son is a fan of the original movie, and, upon his squeezing of one the latest Mike toys during a recent shopping trip to Target, I heard the phrase, “I’ve got my eye on you,” sound out in that classic Billy Crystal voice. Cue me – laughing out loud – in the toy isle. And so, a thought was born, and I decided to make a card using this sentiment.
I found the cute monster shape at the online Silhouette store – little did I know it involved so many pieces! I simplified him a bit in order to match the desired color scheme, and I used a white gel pen to draw on his shoelaces. I used the speech bubble from the heart in speech bubble shape for the sentiment, designed the text, and resized the shape using Silhouette Studio software and the Cameo’s print and cut feature.
I think this would make a great Halloween card for a kiddo – I will be giving it to my little boy, along with his treat bucket, come this October 31!
