Ghost Halloween Card

This card is similar to the Ghost Halloween House posted on 9/22/2010. It uses many of the same elements from the house. The ribbon adds some bright and cheeriness to the card. Stamps used are retired BUT I still love them and they still work for the Halloween season. I couldn't justify purchasing more Halloween stamps for my colelction when I love these, too.

Card front at bottom:

Inside: all edges are sponged as well as the inside white card.

Closer view of the inside: "Trick or Treat" is one of those rub-ins from the $1 bin....came in handy to use for this card.

To make this card:
(1) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Lovely Lilac CS, score along the 8-1/2" side @ 4-1/4"
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Old Olive CS for card front
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Whisper White CS for the inside card
(1) 1" x 8-1/2" strip of Close to Cocoa CS for the "ground", to be torn along the 8-1/2" side

Stamp background on Old Olive CS using Versamark ink:

Use Sponge Daubers to ink edges in Black for all pieces except Close to Cocoa is inked using Close to Cocoa Ink.
Stamp images used in Black ink:

Use Aqua Pen to color the images, cut out, apply dimensionals to (only) Witch and position on to card.
