You are Spooktacular!!

Good morning!  Jess here with an interactive Halloween card featuring stamps from Frosty Fairy Friends in an unexpected setting! ;)
I was looking at that Frosty Fairy Friends house and realized it could be a really creepy haunted house for my ghosts!  I started my card by stamping the ghosts and gravestones from Spooktacular and the house from Frosty Fairy Friends onto white cardstock with copic-friendly ink.  I also stamped a few ghosts on vellum.  I colored all of them with copic markers and die-cut them with the coordinating dies.
Next I blended Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot distress ink onto a piece of watercolor paper to create my spooky night sky.  I also blended the same inks onto a scrap piece of watercolor paper to go behind my interactive slider.  I die cut the slider element from the background and several of the stitched hills with dark grey and black cardstock.  I stamped my sentiment onto one of the hills and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.

Then it was time to assemble my card!  I attached one of the ghosts to the sliding element and then mounted the background onto my card base with a layer of foam mounting tape so the ghost could slide easily.  I adhered my hills to the background and then added the house with foam mounting tape.  I adhered the gravestones and ghosts using a mixture of foam mounting tape and regular adhesive for a change in dimension.  I also flipped one of my vellum ghosts over so that he would be going in the opposite direction.
And that's my not too spooky Halloween card!  :) Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
