To celebrate the first day of PREVIEW WEEK, I made up a CAS (Clean & Simple) card using the same set, Fall Fest!  Check it out!  I was inspired by a card I did a few years ago with a mummy stamp lined up in a row…but these bright colored ghosts are twice as fun!

Here are the VERY simple details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Sahara Sand, folded in half.
  • I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Basic Black cardstock.
  • Along the bottom are two 3/8″ strips of Motley Monsters Designer Paper (great way to use up scraps!)
  • I stamped the ghost image in Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut them with the Fun Fall Framelits.  On the middle one I added a red Heart sequin!  They are popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I also stamped Happy Halloween from And Many More in Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White and cut it with the Word Bubble Framelits then adhered to the top.

See…told you it was VERY simple, but the bright colors of the ghosts really POP off the Basic Black!  Now…go check out Create with Connie and Mary and get more details on the FREE TUTORIAL and BLOG CANDY we have for you today!  And don’t forget to sign up while you are there!

This is adorable! I wish I did Halloween cards, but I just don’t have anyone that would appreciate them. Thankfully I have a customer that LOVES Halloween stuff and she will love this for her nieces and nephews!

Thank you for sharing!
