Ghosts in the Garden by Jean Okimoto


It's a great day for a new release...meet our Fall 2022 Collection of fun, whimsical seasonal designs for Halloween!  Great contemporary die designs to mix, match and layer on cards, layouts, calendars, planners and treat wrappers for the little tricksters.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with the first of many Design Team ideas for Halloween.  View the collection here.

Add the versatile new Fancy Globe Gate to your collection of globe dies - it looks great cut from our Glossy Black Cardstock and the interactive detailed panels swing open to welcome ghosts, goblins and black cats.

Prep the Fancy Gate Globe by rubbing it briskly with a piece of scrunched wax paper to help remove the delicate offcuts.  Cut the gate from Memory Box Black Glossy Paper (it's actually cardstock).  Finger-press the doors open at the sides.  Tie a gold cord at the top and curl the ends with the side of a bonefolder or the plastic burnishing tool.

Cut the ghosts - from the new Ghosts in the Forest set - from heavy white cardstock.  Attach scraps of black cardstock behind their faces.


Cut the Boo Posh Script background from black cardstock.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed coordinating top layer. Cut the top layer from the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad's dark orange sheet. Assemble the greeting.

Cut the floral print from the Garland 6x6 pack with the largest Rectangle Bascis die.  Attach it to a side-folded yellow card.  Attach the diecuts - use foamdots for the ghosts.  Add orange Open Studio Autumn Fairy Jewels.


We don't chose our dies because of their offcuts - but the very cool offcut of the Fancy Gate Globe is just waiting to be featured on a card of its own.  That will be another fall design.

Thanks for visiting the blog - hope we'll inspire you to create a stash of fun Halloween and fall designs to surprise those who weren't expecting a card until December.







Great card! I love the new dies!
