Happy Boo Day

 Greetings on this Saturday night. Hope your weekend is going well.
Here's a purple & black 6x6 Halloween card for you. I used 4 different designer paper patterns on the card front and edge-distressed them all; there are 2 more patterns inside and on back. The ghost was heat-embossed with white powder on a die cut circle which was ink-blended purple. The graveyard was die cut twice and layered behind and in front of the focal circle. The top sentiment was stamped and the bottom sentiment was made with alpha stickers.
Supplies Used:
Color Mates black card base
Black and white card scraps
American Crafts, Lawn Fawn and DCWV designer papers
Picket Fence ghost stamp
Versamark, Memento and Versamagic inks
White embossing powder
Making Memories Spellbounds alpha stickers
Crafty Secrets Boo sentiment stamp
Sizzix TH Alterations OTE Graveyard die
Spellbinders Classic Circles die
I used Splitcoaststampers sketch SC582 for my layout design.
Inside, I've matted with the Boo paper, then found a purple paper scrap to stamp my sentiments.
On back, still another paper pattern and some skinny strips leftover from trimming. I used a journal card in the American Crafts paper pack for my siggie spot, stamping/heat-bossing the siggie at the bottom of it.
A close-up to show the white heat-embossed ghost.
And a final look. Thanks for visiting! XOX
