haunted {house} card

celebrating World Card Making Day!

continuing with the haunted craft theme on my blog,
here's a Happy Halloween card,
complete with ghost and bat and cobwebs.

I have definitely been having fun with acetate this last year or so,
making clear elements (and sometimes entire projects!).

for this card, the acetate becomes the perfect surface
on which the ghost and cobweb float as the door is opened.

the porch light, the ghost, the cobweb, the bat
were each stamped on vellum and die-cut or fussy cut.

the doorway needs to be die-cut from both the printed paper
and the cardstock layer after being stamped on top.
(line them up carefully and practice opening it a couple of times before adhering together.  just to make sure you don't get any wrinkles when they're attached.)

the acetate "doorway" is sticky-stripped to the back, which does show through a bit.
if this bothers you (perfectionist!! lol),
 you could always cut one more cardstock layer that would sandwich that.
also, I adhered my vellum accents with mini glue dots.  again, if you don't want those to show,
you need to get creative with your xyron or something.

there were already so many elements going into this card,
and it was created for our stamp group night,
so I decided not to layer the papers further.  this left it way too flat.
that's where the edge lines come in.  just a ruler and journaling pen.
move the ruler as you draw multiple lines and you'll get a more freehand effect.

Happy Card Making Day!!
I hope it's boo-tiful! : )
