Haunted Halloween Card
Today I Created | A Haunted Halloween Card
I had been thinking about making this card for quite a while and finally had all of the materials to actually create it.
I wanted to use the clear plastic Sizzix packaging as the material to die cut clear ghosts. I had bought a pair of extended cutting pads and the plastic packaging was perfectly suitable for die cutting. I cut six pieces from the Ghosts #3 die. These cut very nicely and saved some plastic from going into the trash.
I used both Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey papers to decorate the front of the card. I used the Phrase, Boo die for the front.
Next I cut seven black pieces of the Sizzix Pumpkin 3-D pop-up die by Karen Burniston. I assembled these as instructed and placed them in the middle of a folded 6" x 7.5" black card. I glued the ghosts to the folds of the "pumpkin" so that they float when the card is opened.
This was such a fun card to make and I like that the packaging plastic cut so nicely.
