El Cucuy AKA Boogie Man Blog Hop

Thanks to my buddy Yolanda for inviting me to another wonderful hop. In the spirit of Halloween we are making cards to remind us of EL CUCUY this is the boogie man for some of the latin american cultures.

I wanted to do something scary but also cute, and what a better way to show scary cute than using a cute Catrina inspired card. I saw this graphic in one of my cousins profile pictures and I just knew I wanted to make it into a card or vinyl cutting or something it was just TOO CUTE. So here it is, I made it into an SVG and made a cute little card. Death is not only scary but elegant in Mexican traditions, and is often represented as LA CATRINA which is a well dressed skeleton that is very popular during this time of year.

For my Katrina Card I kept it simple black and white cardstock with dark pink/red for the flower and accents. I used black glitter for the nose and curled up the eye lashes.








If you will like to create your own scary cute calavera card click HERE to download the svg. Now onto your next stop, to the one that made this great hop possible Yolie. Thanks for the wonderful hops Yolanda!

Here is the full line up in case you get lost along the way:
