GHOSTS, GHOSTIES,,,,BOOOOO

I MADE A SUPER QUICK CARD THIS AFTERNOON AND GOT THE SUPPLIES ALL READY FOR MY CARD CLUB THIS WEEK.  AND....I DISCOVERED A NEW WAY TO USE MY PUNCHES!!  SOOOO AWESOME FOR SOMETHING CREATIVE TO JUST POP INTO MY HEAD WHILE I AM PLAYING WITH MY CARDS.

FIRST, HERE IS THE CARD:

THE BASE OF THE CARD IS BASIC GRAY, THEN A LAYER OF CAJUN CRAZE AND THEN THE DESIGNER PAPER (RETIRED) CALLED FRIGHTFUL SIGHT.  MY GOAL THIS FALL IS TO USE UP ALL MY DESIGNER PAPER BEFORE I PURCHASE NEW!!  I HAVE SO VERY VERY MUCH.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOME RETIRED PAPER THAT YOU LOVE, I WOULD BE GLAD TO SHARE SOME WITH YOU!

BACK TO THE CARD...SEE THAT ADORABLE LITTLE GHOST IN THE RIGHT HAND CORNER THAT MATCHES THE PAPER AND THE STAMP?  I MADE IT MYSELF!!!  YEP I DID!!  HERE IS HOW I MADE IT:


YOU NEED THE 1 3/4" OVAL PUNCH AND THE WORD WINDOW PUNCH.

 I AM USING CONFETTI WHITE.  THAT IS WHY YOU SEE BITS AND PIECES OF STUFF ON THE CARD STOCK.  FIRST, PUNCH AN OVAL WITH YOUR PUNCH.

 THEN CUT THAT OVAL IN HALF.  YOU WILL MAKE TWO GHOSTS.


MAKE A MARK WITH YOUR FINGERNAIL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OVAL AT THE WIDEST PART.  USING YOUR WORD WINDOW PUNCH, PUNCH A SMALL SNIP OUT JUST A BIT LEFT OF CENTER.  THEN PUNCH AGAIN A BIT RIGHT OF CENTER.  USE YOUR BLACK MARKER TO MAKE THE EYES AND THAT'S IT!!  ISN'T HE ADORABLE??!!  REMINDS ME OF PACKMAN GHOSTS.


I MADE THE BANNER BY USING MY SQUARE PUNCH AND CUTTING A V IN EACH END.  I USED SMALL GLUE DOTS AND HUMPED IT UP TO LOOK MORE LIKE A BANNER.


THIS IS THE INSIDE, BUT THE 2 OVAL PUNCHED CS IS JUST SITTING THERE FOR YOU TO SEE.  ONLY THE COMPLETED GHOST AND THE BOOOO ARE ATTACHED TO THE INSIDE.

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS CARD AND VERY EASY TUTORIAL.  IF YOU MAKE SOME GHOSTS FOR YOUR CARDS, I WOULD LOVE A LINK BACK SO I CAN SEE THEM!!

BOOOOO TO ALL Y'ALL.
