Halloween Card

Today I am making a card for the grand kids.  I like the way this turned out. I followed the outline from Cards in Envy challenge (purple and green). The design is a download from Miss Kate Cutables. I changed it up a bit to add the purple glitter paper. My Explore had no problems with the heavy paper, turned out wonderful. The background cut is from Recollections, I picked it up on sale at Michaels. I inked it with Grape Crush (SU), and added a background print from Cloud 9 designs (I don't know where I got this, I have had it for a while).   This is a 5x7 card because of the background cut. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, I used some opaque sparkle embossing powder from recollections.

Hope you like this a come again to see what I have done. Should be starting on Christmas cards soon.



  1. Making the ghosts peep through the background cut like that is a really great idea! A super card, lots of fun - I'm sure the grandkids will love it. Thanks for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz

  2. Nothing better than a purple witch hat this time of year on a purple and green background! Love it and love the design of your card. Thanks for sharing with us at Cards in Envy.

  3. Great Halloween Card. The color choices are always hard when you need to use a lot of black, but you have that covered. Love the hat, great choice of colors and background. Happy Halloween and thanks for joining us at BBTB2 for our Halloween challenge
