Skull

Stamping with Princess – Skull for Many Occassions

Before I get started, please take my poll on men (or more importantly…masculine cards). It will open a new window. After you finish taking the poll, close that window and you’ll be right back here. Thanks!

My sister is visiting this week. We decided to do a little stamping while she is here…and this is her creation! I don’t know if I should start out by saying that her husband likes skulls or not…so I will. At first she wasn’t real keen on his fascination…but apparently she’s warmed up to it!

So, we got to thinking about all the hundreds of different occassions you can use this for. There are soooo many! lol Sure, there’s:

  1. Happy Halloween Bone Head – obviously
  2. Day of the Dead – another obvious one
  3. Happy Birthday Bone Head – Not as obvious…but a good one!
  4. What a Scream – any occassion

Anyway, I think she did a nice job on the card. And I couldn’t resist posting it! Patterned paper is from The Stack 6 by DCWV. Red is from a paper store. Skull stamp is imaginisce Snag’em Stamps Skull #000719.

And, why are skulls so intimidating anyway? They are a natural part of the body, after all! Could it have anything to do with the way people draw them? Naaah! If you think about it, skulls are actually a good reminder of Jesus. He went to “the place of the skull”, also known as Galgotha, where he died on a cross (John 19:17). His story doesn’t end there. Acts 2:14-41 has the rest of His story.

    What a cool card. Who would have thought a skull could be so versitile? Love it. I would like to see more skull cards, maybe in pinks!

    I knew about your brother-in-law’s fascination with skulls and this is a very “interesting” card. And yes, I would say it is masculine-even if you did it in pink:-)
