Hello friends! It’s day 4 of the MFT Stamps August Release Countdown! Today, I have a fun and spooky set to share with you today called Ghostly Greetings. This set is perfect for those of you that like to make Halloween cards/goodies or for making cards for those who love to celebrate the day.
I made an A2-sized, open-front box card today that I wanted to look like a spooky cemetery. In a way, the box itself also looks like a tombstone. I first started by stamping my images with black ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored them with Copic Markers and used the coordinating Ghostly Greetings Die-namics to cut them out.
Copic Color Combos Used:
- Ghost: 0, C00, C0, C2, C4
- Tombstones: W00, W0, W2, W4
I used a sheet of Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock for my card base and layered it with both white and ink-blended card stock. For my ink-blended background, I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. I had diecut a circle from masking paper for my moon prior to blending the background with ink and then colored in the moon with cool gray Copic Markers (0, C00, C0, C2, C4).
I added a rickety black fence by diecutting the new Spooky Fence Die-namics from a piece of Black Licorice Card Stock. For my grass, I diecut some heavy vellum paper using the Grassy Fields Die-namics. I love the frosted look that it gives the grass. It’s very subtle in the photos but when looking at the card in person, it’s a pretty neat effect. Next, I blended some Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks for my side panels and stamped a fun sentiment from the new Sassy Pants Spooktacular Stamp Set with black ink. Lastly, I added a spider web for added interest in the background from the new Boo Crew Stamp Set and attached my bats with some pieces of clear acetate to make them look like they were flying.
