I started by building the background for my card. I die cut a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of watercolor cardstock with the Storybook 2 Die. Making sure to keep the inside window cutouts, I first stamped and embossed a greeting from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Friends Stamps on the long rectangle window cutout using Versamark Ink and white embossing powder. I applied Chipped Sapphire and Wilted Violet Distress Inks over the frame and inside cutouts using the Ink Blending Tool. I spritzed the background with water from a Distress Sprayer, let it sit for about 20 seconds letting the water wick away some of the ink, and then blotted the background dry with a paper towel.
I stamped the bunny vampire, raccoon, moon, spider, and bat from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Friends Stamp on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies.
The background frame and greeting window where adhered to a white side fold card base with foam adhesive. The square windows were adhered directly to the card base and then the critters and moon were secured to the card as shown.
I decided to add some ghosts to the design. I stamped the images from Halloween Friends on vellum using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder before die cutting with the coordinating dies and gluing to the card with liquid adhesive as shown.
I finished the design with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh 1/4" and mini Silver Star Confetti.
