You've Been Boo'd!

I have another Halloween card for you today.  I don't normally make Halloween cards but MTME has such cute ones that I couldn't resist!

I used MTME's "A Spooky Surprise" for my card.  I grouped the pumpkin, ghost and jack-o-lantern together and added the sentiment, "You've Been Boo'd" together and printed them up.  I printed up 3 more jack-o-lanterns and cut them out.

I used copics to color them and popped them up with pop dots.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the border around the card.  It is actually behind the orange card.  See how it is partly open in the photo below?

You can see the dimensions of the jack-o-lantern in the photo below.

The spiderweb was a little tricky.  I didn't want to have to use black in but since printers don't have WHITE ink it's all I could do... I made a black background and then turned the spiderweb white and placed it on top of the black background and then printed it up.  No matter what color I used to print onto the black cardstock, it just wasn't going to show up.

The orange with white polka dot paper is from some old Creative Memories paper.    I added some orange brads and put some star dust stickles on them so they will shine and I added some ribbon.  I used clear glue dots to hold the middle of the bow and the ends in place.

I hope you will join us for this week's sketch challenge!  Go on over to My Time Made Easy's blog to check it out!

Nancy what a gorgeous card! I love the black background to show off the white web. I wish someone could invent white ink - HAHA - but for now we'll have to settle for reverse printing! Great little details on this one - thanks so much for stamping along in the Stampy Land DARE! ---Stampy Land Susan
