Oldie but Goodie Halloween Card

This was CASEd from an old OnStage several years ago, and my stamp clubs made them in '04 I think. Anyway, I still have the last one that you can never bear to give away. It always makes me smile.

The 'ghost' was made by stamping the boy on a plain piece of paper and tracing in pencil where a ghost sheet would land on him. Then I just cut the ghost outline out, punched holes where his eyes were with a 1/8" punch, and used it as a template for the actual cardstock ghost: just trace & punch.

If you look closely, you can see we used a craft knife to cut around his hand, and 'tucked' the handles of his trick or treat bag underneath, so he's really holding it.

Stamps: Crayon Kids (retired), Brushstroke Alpha (retired), Tag Time
Ink: Black, Pumpkin Pie
CS: White, Kraft, Pumpkin
Other: 1/8" circle punch, hemp, mini glue dots (for the hemp to the pumpkin square)
