  • Cut background papers from the Licorice Dot paper and adhere to the box.
  • Stamp the Moonlight Woods F1885 on Neenah White. Cut to edges of stamped image.  Adhere to black card stock and trim close. Adhere to background paper in shadow box.
  • Die cut the Country House 98165 from another piece of scrap black card stock.  Mount on Licorice Dot paper and trim close to the outline of the house.  Open the doors and windows a bit.  Pop dot onto background to the right of the Moonlight Woods image.
  • Die cut Puffy Clouds 98172 also from black card stock scraps, adhering the one or more flat and pop dot the largest cloud overlapping the moon.
  •  Die cut the PoppyStamps Mini Picket Border 838 from black cardstock and adhere to the outside of the frame in front of the house.
  • Stamp the Pumpkin Trio D1884 on Neenah White and the stamp the Jack O Lantern Faces C1883 on top.  Cut out each one and pop dot each into the three tiny boxes. 
  • Die cut three of the Grove Branch 98311 from black card stock and adhere them to the frame over each of the pumpkin boxes.  Add three black jewels to the end of each branch. 

These additional dies will make terrific accent pieces for the black and white shadow box. Choose the ones you like! Suspend the skeleton, ghosts, or bats with thread from the frame so they dangle over the central image. The spiders can be affixed from the top of the frame with tiny glue dots.
