Bats, Ghosts and Halloween Dome Layers by Jean Okimoto

P1160893 2

Say "Boo" with the great new ghosts and bats in a lattice-bordered frame from Poppystamps. Square cards usually require extra postage and special handling - but this fits perfectly into an A2 envelope.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a square-ish Halloween design for you,

Cut the Poppystamps Circle Fold Frame from gray cardstock.  Fold it back along the scored left edge to form a tab.  Cut a 4-¼" x 5-½" rectangle of the same cardstock.  Use the tab as a hinge to attach the frame to the back of the rectangle.  Rub the Poppystamps Lattice Small Curve Border with scrunched waxed paper to prep it for easy removal of the little pieces.  Cut two curve borders and attach them to the card front.

Cut an orange circle with the inner edge of the Circle Fold Frame.  Attach the lattice borders.

Cut the house from the Haunted House Dome Layer from black cardstock.  Trim the bottom with the inner edge of the Circle Fold Frame.  

Cut the ghosts and bats from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set from the black and white sheets of the Frosted Glitter Pad.  Cut the bats again from black cardstock and attach them behind the glittered bats for extra dimension.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Halloween Pumpkin Clear Stamps and Die Set - on green cardtock with Onyx Black VersaFine.  Dry the ink and cut it with the 1" Circle Basics die.

Attach the diecuts to the circle and the card. Cut little accent squares of the green Frosted Glitter Pack sheet.


Create unique window cards for holiday or everyday greetings.  Layering the smaller diecuts helps create a little story within the cutout and keeps the little pieces organized.  

Thanks for visiting!
