Haunted House Greeting Card


Hello there friends and crafty peeps!  Ginny here to share a very mixed media styled card. I was inspired to create a background with Distress Inks and once I had it done I knew just what holiday chippie I wanted to use…..

I know it’s a bit early for Halloween but I really wanted to play with those inks lol.

With all the detail in the background I knew I needed a large bold graphic focal point.

I was even able to incorporate the extra piece I had trimmed from the top as an extra embellishment.

Here’s that chippie. It’s the haunted house oval. I wiped it down to prepare it for altering.

I clipped off the top of the oval to make it fit better on my card and not hide the inked background.

Black embossing powder was a great way to get a nice finish quickly.  I went back and altered the bats on that mini moon that I originally planned to discard.  It fit perfectly on the top of the card as an extra added detail.

  1. I know you’re featuring other parts of this boo-tiful card, but it’s the button with hanging charms that is grabbing my eyes!! And it’s not too early for Halloween. My local Michael’s told me that all their Halloween products are out and they won’t be getting any more. I was after a totally gray and black DCWV paper collection I’d seen in one of their adds when they put out their shipment about 6-8 weeks ago. Ha! Sold out already! Onward to more Halloo-oo-ooween projects!
