Fun Halloween card and some tips.

Hello everyone!  Happy Fall!  I have been playing with backgrounds lately, and I have one to share with you today.  I used CottageCutz Trick or Treat Ghost and CottageCutz Frankly to create my scene.  Here is my card.

I used the tombstone from the Frankly die and the negatives of the hand and the hole in the ground.

Do you ever use the negatives of your die cuts to make something else?  I just happened to be using both dies when I noticed the negative for the hole in the ground.  I thought it was the perfect stencil to create the spooky clouds.  Then to create a little more spookiness I used the hand negative to have hands reaching from the grave.  I just flipped it over to have a right and left.  Again here is the finished card.

Next week I will be sharing the card I made with the CottageCutz Frankly.  Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hugs and smiles,
