Halloween Greetings Card

Card stock base is orange card stock scored with fold at the top. Used the Taylored Expressions Ray of Sunshine cutting plate for the starburst pattern. Scrap printed card stock used for the starburst.

Cut and scored the orange card stock for the base of the card but did not crease the scored line. Used black card stock with Ken Oliver Stick It sheet on the back to cut out the starburst cutting plate. Peeled the backing off this black die cut piece and put this onto the orange card front:

Cut small pieces of printed card stocks using the trimmer and cut out the starburst cutting plate:

Used a glue pen to put all the printed card stock pieces onto the card front starburst die cut piece.

Stamped the Taylored Expression Graphic Greetings Halloween stamp onto white/GP using ColorBox black ink in the Misti. Trimmed this to the size I wanted and sponged the edges with black ink. Cut a piece of orange card stock a bit larger than my stamped piece. Put that behind the stamped greeting piece using the ATG. Put this onto black craft foam using double sided tape.

For the two glittered ghosts I used a Fiskars punch -- to get the ghosts facing two different directions I punched out one ghost from glittered card stock with the glittered side facing up:

then turned the glittered card stock with the glittered side down and punched out another ghost:

Used a small circle punch and punched eyes for the ghosts. Used a 1/4" circle punch and punched out black circles to put behind the ghosts eyes. Put those circles onto the ghost head using a glue pen. Put the ghosts onto the card front using glue dots.

Added sequins and two black foil card stock bats to the greeting piece using TomBow glue:

The starburst die cuts all the card stocks with the pieces coming out of the die easily. Another card that uses printed card stock scraps. TFL

I love how you've cut the sunburst out of different papers! The wonderful sentiment looks so nice on the background with the sparkly ghosts peeking out! Another Halloween winner, my friend!
