Spooky Halloween Card

I have been wanting to use this card feature cut from mini Monsters and decided on using it for this spooky halloween card. I love the cut because you open the fence to the right first, then open the card. I thought it looked like a fun card. If you have Mini Monsters, it is the card feature on page 72.

I also decided to do something a little differently and put all the cuts and embellies on the inside, while leaving the outside of the card a bit plain. I like the way it turned out, I hope you do too!


I am posting this card for Mary's Halloween Challenge at Cardz TV, go check it out, you don't want to miss this one!
Also, this is for Simon Says Challenge, any holiday card. They also have a blog hop, check it out!

Card Materials:
I cut everything from Mini Monsters except the cat and the drippy phrases, those came from MS Seasonal Cake Cartridge. (The little bat I already had in my stash, I think it is a Cuttlebug cut.)
My ghost has a Peachy Keen face.
I used core'dinations card stock which was perfect for the card cut because it was black on one side (for the outside) and purple on the other (for the inside). I also used some white Papertrey Ink cardstock.
I inked up with black and purple Memento Dew Drops inks, and gave it a misty look with white VersaMark ink.
And of course ~ googly eyes from Michaels - love using them!

This card is adorable. I love the eyes on the outside and then the embellishments on the inside. Great idea. I don't have this cartridge, but I need to figure out how to do something like that with my SCAL2. I love how it opens. Can you tell I really like this card? the whole concept is great!

People tend to think of orange and black for Halloween, but purple and green is just as good in my book, in fact I used it on one of the charms on my Halloween card this week. Such a fun card you've made - The Design Team are really pleased that you joined us for the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Fun blog hop this week - Thank you!
