Wondering where the Globe Ornament is?  It’s diecut from scrap cardboard, then covered with three strips of Scor-Tape.  Diecut the Andover Ornament – leave the pieces in the die.  Press the Globe Ornament diecut (with the adhesive strips) onto the back of the Andover Ornament while it’s still in the die  - then all of the pieces will be aligned, attached and ready for stamping, and the (hidden) Globe Ornament adds a bit of dimension. 

Ink the Jack O Lantern Faces with Onyx Black, then attach Post-It Notes to cover the two side faces and the surrounding areas, then stamp the center face.  That’s a lot easier than stamping it first, then trying to reassemble it and align the stamped pieces.  Trust me, I've tried that!

Complete supply lists and directions for today’s card  - and many more – are in the Ideas Gallery  The googly eyes are from Impress.
