Ghostly Greetings!


*Super Excited that this card was the My Creative Time Designer Challenge Winner on 11/13/14 Yay! I am always honored and blessed! Thank You!*

How are you on this fine morning!?! I am behind in my Halloween card making this year.  I thought I would give the Designer Challenge a try at My Creative Time

So here it goes...using lots of goodies from My Creative Time online store.
I began with a white card base, and I added a strip of patterned paper to the left hand side of the card front. I vertically wrapped a length of black checked gingham ribbon around the card where the patterned paper ended and tied in a bow further embellishing with Yellow Baker's Twine and an orange button.
I used a Halloween Journaling card from my stash, and I added it to the bottom of the card front adding a few enamel dots to the lower corner. The rest of the products used to complete the card are all from My Creative Time and the supply list is below.
MCT products used:
Fright Night
~ Trick or Treat
Here is the Inspiration photo!
I am also sharing this card at 3GirlJam - Halloween, Aloha Friday Challenge - Dies or Punches, FabnFunky - Anything with Ribbon, Simply Create Too - Halloween, Craftin' Desert Divas - Halloween.

Last weekend I created a card for Trendy Twine and only giving a sneak on my blog. I received many emails about the card, so I thought I would share it here and give further product information.

As you can see, I used a Small Glassine Bag on the front of my card to serve as a pocket to hold the Halloween Greeting tag I made using Grape Limeade Trendy Twine to embellish the top.

Using a Small Glassine Bag is a fun and interactive way to dress up a card, and the recipient can use the tag as a bookmark or pass along to someone else when they want to dress up a package.  Extra goodies are from Michael's (Sequins and Spider)

All the dies and stamped images to create this card came from My Creative Time!

That's it for me! I hope you have a fabulous week!
