Ghost Halloween Card

These is my first Halloween card of the year. I used the adorable Hello Bluebird Frightful Little Bits stamps and dies along with their Spooky Scene die set to make this card. I fell in love with these little ghosts as soon as I saw them! The ghost with the glasses is my favorite. I used Distress Oxide Inks, Martha Stewart Sterling Glitter Paste and a cloud stencil to make the spooky background.

 If you'd like to make this card, keep reading for the instructions, as well as a full list of the supplies I used to create the card.

Let's Make This Card!

 

The first step is to make the cloud background. Cut a piece of white cardstock to fit an A2 size card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2").

Use a blender brush, wilted violet and black soot Distress Oxide Inks and a Mini Cloud Edges Stencil from My Favorite Things to create the cloud background.


Next, use a small paint brush to splatter some water onto the cloud background. Use a paper towel to blot off the excess water. Next, use a palette knife to apply sterling Martha Stewart Glitter Paste through a Lawn Fawn Starry Night Sky stencil. Carefully remove the stencil after you are done applying the glitter paste. Set aside to dry.



This is an up close look at the background. The glitter paste adds some sparkle as well as some texture to the cloud background.

 

 

While you are waiting for the glitter paste to dry, cut the background using Hello Bluebird's Spooky Scene die set and black cardstock.

 

 

Next, stamp and color the ghosts and pumpkin bucket stamps. These are from the Hello Bluebird Frightful Little Bits stamp set. I used the coordinating dies to cut the stamps, but you can also fussy cut them. I used Copic markers to color the images.

Emboss EEEK! on black cardstock using a VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and white Ranger embossing powder.



Once the glitter paste is dry you can start to assemble the card. Attach the cloud background to an A2 size card. Next, assemble the pieces from the Spooky Scene die set. They fit together like puzzle pieces so it is very simple to put together. Use the photo as a reference for the placement of the headstones and cross. Attach all pieces using glue. I bent back the small branches so they look like they are popping out from the card. 

 

 

You are almost finished with the card! Next, tuck and glue the ghost behind the headstone and attach the pumpkin treat bucket to his hand using an adhesive foam dot. Attach the rest of the ghosts and the 3 bats using adhesive foam dots. You are done! 


I hope you enjoyed making this Halloween card. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
