It's already October 29th but I just had to use Swirling Ghosts  - peeping out from behind a Square Bump Border - one more time before the big day.  The Happy Birthday Tiles were waiting to be used too - so why not add a label-maker "BOO!" and transform it into a Halloween greeting?  Hi, Jean Okimoto here tonight, with a quick card for the kids.

Cut the edge of a side-folded orange A2 card with the Square Bump Border.

Dry-emboss the "HAPPY" and "DAY" portions of Happy Birthday Tiles using the plates and embossing mat required for your machine.  Print "BOO!" on a labelmaker.

Cut five Swirling Ghosts from white cardstock and attach scraps of black cardstock behind them for eyes.  

Create an assortment of bright accents by attaching several strips of washi tape to white cardstock and diecutting Honeycomb Background.  Place the little hexagons on a scrap of felt and burnish them with the large end of a stylus to add a little dimension.  

Attach everything to the card - use foam dots for the big ghost on the right.  Add tiny black sequins.

There are so many ways to use the new Square Bump Borders - and the Circle Bump Borders - to add interesting layers and dimension to your cards.  Hope you've enjoyed the Halloween ideas presented by our Design Team.  We've loved sharing them with you!

Thanks for stopping by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!
