Cool Ghouls :: Cristina Garcia

Hey Peachies!

It's Cristina from Crafting with Cristina and today I'm sharing with you a fun card that I made using my Peachy Keen Stamps.

To me, Halloween is just around the corner (well as being the next crafting holiday) and I am already seeing lots of cute papers and supplies. So I decided to go through my stash of paper to see what I already have only to find 3 almost brand new paper packs that I have purchased over the last few Halloweens.

I have to use up my stash first before I buy any new paper, so I decided to make a pattern heavy card.

  • I first started with some white cardstock and built all of my layers on top of it.
  • This card is sized 7" x 4.5" but will fit in a regular 5" x 7" envelope. 
  • I decided I wanted to use alot of different textures and patterns so I decided to go with some ghosts shapes that I cut on my Silhouette Cameo
  • I then stamped my favorite PK-693 Monster Mash Faces 1 1/8"using Black Pigment ink and colored them in using my Prismacolor pencils
  • Everything else was cut by hand. I used various strips of paper and cut them into ribbon ends. 

Over all I love how the card turned out. It's very vibrant and the white ghosts are still the main focus of the card.

Hope this inspires you!

Have a great day!

This is ADORABLE! I love the little curled up banners on the side of the card. And the polka dot bow is gorgeous. And of course the ghosts are perfect! Hugs- Glora
