No Tricks, Just Treats

Happy Friday everyone!  It's Jeanne today with a quick, clean and simple card for Halloween.  I love Halloween; not the ghoulish things but all the cute Halloween things - the black kitties, jack-o-lanterns, cute ghosts, trick or treaters, etc.  This card features just such a cute ghost and jack-o-lantern.
I started by making an A2 card base from black cardstock.  I then cut a panel 4 x 5.25 inches from Halloween designer paper.  I used the largest of the stitched rectangle dies to cut a panel from white cardstock.
I used scraps of Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and white to cut the pieces from the Happy Ghost and Halloween Phrase and More die.
I glued my image together on my silicone mat.  Using the mat allows me to glue all the pieces together without fear of them sticking to whatever is underneath.  The eyes are colored with a fine tip multi-liner pen.
Next, I glued all my panels together and laid the ghost and pumpkin on the white panel so I could get the right placement for the words.  To make sure the words are straight I will use a ruler and my grid paper.  My ruler has a cork backing and does not slip so I can place it straight across my card and use it as a guide for the word.

Finally I popped the ghost off the card with foam dots.
I still felt it needed something so I added a few matte black sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today.  There is a new Christmas release in the online store.  Check back with us to see some wonderful cards using these great new dies!

I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
