You've Been Boo'd

Aren't these the cutest little ghosts! They remind me of Casper the Ghost. These stamps are from "Our Craft Lounge" and the set is called "Ghostly Greetings".
The card base is 5" x 7". There is a layer of Pumpkin Pie card stock then a piece of black and white polka dot designer paper (I don't know the name of the company). The images were stamped with Memento black ink then colored with Copic markers. The moon stamp has some little stars around it but since I wanted to cut it out, I cut off the stamped stars and used a Martha Stewart border punch to get more stars. A Cuttlebug corner was cut out for the upper left corner. The sentiment was stamped then cut out with an oval Nestability and sponged prior to taking it out of the die. A paper piercing tool was used to punch holes around in each scallop.

All images are attached with dimensional tape. The corner was run through a small Xyron sticker machine so the entire thing would stick down. The buttons were added using Glue Dots. Some green grosgrain ribbon was added to the bottom of the card then a piece of green rick rack added on top. I wanted to ground the little ghost holding the jack-o-lantern so tried to make it look like grass under him. The rick rack was also run through the Xyron sticker machine so it would stick. A piece of tied black grosgrain ribbon was added with a glue dot to the upper corner button and black twine added to the lower buttons. A few black pearls were added to complete the card. Oh, I forgot to say that yellow Stickles was added to the jack-o-lantern's face, the mouths of the ghosts and to the moon and stars.
