Hello Everyone!  Happy Tuesday and thanks for stopping by my blog!
Today's card is for Halloween!  Though I don't get into all the major festivities of Halloween, it is one of my favorite holidays.  Ghosts and cobwebs, creepy candles and decorative lights...I love it all and that includes making cards for this frightful holiday.
I love this card because it is simple, but still allows for lots of details to be added.  I cut everything out using my Sure Cuts A Lot program, and my Cricut.  The spiderweb and ghost images I pulled off the internet and modified them a little bit so that they would cut out better.
Once the webs were cut, I used a white gel pen (love using this!) and marked the webbing.  Then used glitter glue on top of the pen so the webs would sparkle.
Once the webs dried I attached them to white card stock so they had a border.
I cut out the ghosts and used 3D black paint on the wings, and then covered that with a clear glitter so that, again, they would sparkle. 
Can you tell I like glitter?  I use it on almost every card!
The picture doesn't really show the sparkle on the's hard to capture that in a photo.
Then I put everything together!  The letters for BOO are cut using the Mars Attacks font.  I felt it fit in with the Halloween theme.  I again used my trusty white gel pen (seriously, if you craft and don't have one, I highly recommend making the purchase :) ) and I drew in some additional spiderwebs and spiders, and put some stitching around the sentiment frame.
