Boo to you! Hello, Marybeth here today, sharing this simply fun Halloween Boo card.

I use Poppystamps Boo Outline , Squeaker Ghost and memory box Frosted Glitter Pad.

I cut out these cute little guys a few times, as I wanted a bit of a shadow and thicker texture so they would stand out on the white panel.

Again I kept this clean and simple with only two colors, that way star of this card would be the word die and the sweet little Ghost.

I keep some of my dies together, much easier to keep in one place .

Thank you for visiting us here at Poppystamps today, I hope you find some inspiration to shop and create . I know this craft we all share has been a great blessing during these difficult times. 

We are still very smoky with active fires to the east and west of where I live. I miss the blue sky and pray for so many including the firefighters! Did you know many firefighters sleep on the ground or top of the firetruck when fighting the fires. They are awesome!

Take care and God bless!

Hi friends!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card made with dies from the new release.

I love bold colors and clean graphic designs and this card contains both.  I started out with a white card base topped with a slightly smaller panel of aqua card stock.

Next I cut the Holly Background die from white card stock and adhered it to the assembled panel.   I cut the panel a few more times from shades of green, red and pink card stock and inlaid all the pieces.   The die cut pieces all fit together and the end result is smooth and flat.

When I originally tried to add the Snowy Merry Christmas sentiment it was difficult to read over the busy background.  To help bring out the sentiment I add a second die cut from gold glitter card stock, and a strip of vellum to soften and blur the background.

I'm happy with this clean inlay card with just the right amount of sparkle and shine.
