This little ghost will make the perfect Halloween card or party topper.  I used strips of vellum cardstock to create her opaque image, a shimmery bow for the top of her head and wiggly eyes to give her character.  I found this idea while perusing Pinterest. Unfortunately there was no name so I don’t know who to give credit to. If you know who it was, please leave me a comment.

The layers of designer paper used on this card are all from the same package – Spooky Night.  Stampin’ Up!’s designer papers are doubled sided, one side providing a theme and the other side providing a generic pattern that can be used all year long.

Today’s card provides lots of designer paper layers I’d thought it was the perfect time to remind you about a quick tip video I did several years ago that teaches you how to cut layers for your cards.  You can view that video HERE.

I’ve included the cutting dimensions for today’s card along with pictures and supplies below.  All these supplies can be purchased in my online store and I provide generous ordering REWARDS.  Click HERE to read all about my REWARDS program.
