Fun Little Ghost Town
by Marybeth Lopez
Hello Marybeth Lopez here today, with a fun Halloween card. This middle ghost moves a bit , kinda springs up but it easy to mail.
Oh no where did the month of August go! It's been very warm here and the price of air conditioning here in Ca is reduclious ..... maybe everywhere. Well I can't wait for fall.
I jumped right ahead with a Halloween card made with Poppystamps brand new Fall Collection. I used Twisted Houses ,Halloween Assemblage, Modest Greetings and Glossy Black Paper.
The houses are layered twice and on the back I used a thin vellum paper to put behind the windows. I wanted them to show up a bit more so I very lightly dabbed some orange ink on the back , for a soft glow, in the windows.
For the hill I just cut a curve and added it to the card panel. I added two ghost made out of vellum.
I cut two piece's acetate and added score tape to front and back (strong hold) Oh.... before I added the tape I folded the paper with a bone folder.
I recut some of the dies with the glossy black paper for the : eyes and doors. I wanted them to stand out from the black card stock.
I used Modest Greetings Hot Foil set from Poppystamps . I know this is a Halloween card but I also needed to send a big congratulations card as well.
This was another fun card to create with the new Poppystamps dies and papers.
I hope you have a great day and I will see you in September. As a card maker I love making, fall, Halloween and all holiday cards. Let the fun begin.
Take care and God bless you all.
Hi Marybeth, Fantastic !! I love your use of vellum behind the town houses and the use of a yellow light, suggesting a warm and cosy house, also your use of vellum for the cute ghosties, and I love the fact that the front ghost is springy. A lovely card.
Lots of Love from Patricia xx
