The trio of little Squeaker Ghosts are so charming I wanted to make them the full focus of a card. I also hadn't used the Haunting Pumpkins so thought a game of peek-a-boo was in order!
I don't have a "peek-a-boo" sentiment but luckily I do have the Poetic Uppercase Alphabet so could create my own!
To keep it fun and not-at-all spooky, I used a lot of glitter paper - the ghosts, the glow of the jack-o-lanterns, and the panel behind the black.
The cobwebs were a last minute decision. I wanted something to break up the solid black background. The new stamp set Halloween Ingredients has a fun and a bit frilly cobweb - although I did end up covering most of the curls and frills. I embossed it with a sparkly embossing powder.
The jack-o-lanterns are very easy to work with. There are two dies - one cuts the inside and the outline die cuts them out. They are lined up five in a row so you can cut them all at once. The other advantage is that you can then use the outline die to cut a background. In this case, I used the sparkly yellow to get the glowing eyes.
I hand-cut the stems - they are just thin little triangles so easy to do.
The glitter is fairly thick so there's a lot of dimension on this card just because of those layers. I did use dimensional adhesive on the top ghost and the ghost to the right.
I love these little "squeakers". Those happy little faces kept this card fun and happy!
