Boo to YOU


This cute ghost is from Rubbernecker and I bought it last year. He’s pretty big, so my original idea for using him did not work the way I wanted.

I used my CB Haunted Hallowed embossing folder which I got on clearance at Pat Catans for under $2.00. I love, love, love Pat Catans – they have such a great staff and wonderful prices on lots and lots of goodies! I also used my CB Forest Branches on my black strip, but after about 20 pictures I STILL could not get the embossing to show up, so you will just have to take my word on it.

I added Lovely as a Tree in the background, with a touch of a white gel pen and colored my ghost with copics and bigs.

To make the haunted house pop, I ran a white ink pad edge over the Elegant Eggplants for that eerie, spooky look.


This very basic Halloween card is made with basic black, Haunted Halloween CB folder and a white ink pad swiped down the card.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
