Ghostly Greetings


I made use of some cool snippets of Halloween dsp that my friend Mary Anne shared with me (thanks again M.A.) and made a card with a pocket to hold a tag. The top was done with both a retired SU! tab punch and stamp. I created the pocket, using a round punch for the opening. The I.O. die-cut ghost was colored with a green fluorescent Copic and the purple diagonal strip was cut with a Lil Inker die.


Here's what the tag looks like pulled out of the pocket. The ghostly greetings stamp is SU! (retired) and I die cut it with a SU! framelit die, outlining the edge with a black marker before cutting.

I'm entering this card into 2 challenges:


Snippets Playground #199 - must use snippets

Wishing you a great Tuesday, and thanks for stopping by!

Great idea to have the little ghosts pull out of their little holder. It's nice to see that they are happy, fun-loving ghosts. Love that background paper. Enjoy the day.

Wow! Love this little pocket, it's a great idea for any situation, but is just perfect for this Halloween theme! The black cat in the top of the tag looks great!!!Even the shape of the cat matches well :D And the greetings are very fun with the little ghosts! Well done, it's a so creative work!
