Ghostly Halloween Kitty…Boo to You!

I decided to not invest in Halloween themed paper crafting options this year. Shocker, I know:0 We love Halloween (that’s me, my Mom and my sister Wendy). But I knew I would not have time to play with the items this year. So I instead looked around at what I had on hand to create a spooky card.

When I saw the Blackberry Beauty designer series paper in the catalog, I immediately thought this paper pack included 2 potential Halloween prints. Getting a package in my hand confirmed I have a good eye;) It was a fun challenge for me to use these prints and the Cat Punch to make a spooky Halloween black ghost cat.

I made 12 of these cards and have the twig looking paper left to make a few more. The Chalk Marker makes the spooky white eyes…

Here is a video showing how I created this hand stamped greeting card.

Order supplies to make this card through my online store here or click the product links below. Remove the host code BFUNJKRY if your order is over $150 (excluding shipping and tax) so you can redeem all the host rewards yourself. Make sure you remain shopping with me so I can reward you with an emailed pdf tutorial.
