Haunted Boo-tiful Day

  I usually don't make a lot of Halloween cards but when I saw the Haunted House and Frankie & Bride stamps in the Happy Halloween/Fall release at High Hopes I had a few card designs pop in to my head right away. 

Frankie and his bride love to travel and today we find them on a haunted house tour! He is the first to admit he isn't great at taking selfies which his new bride finds hilarious but he tries hard. Shifting a little to the right would have helped this photo but they are a boo-tiful day and that is all that matters.

            After stamping Frankie & Bride, and the Haunted House I coloured them with Copic markers. Frankie & Bride is hand fussy cut leaving a thin white edge and the haunted house was cut in a square. I added some stones to the path on the haunted house stamp just for fun - thank you to my crafty peep for the idea <wink>
Next I cut some patterned paper from an old We R Memory Keepers pad to fit my 5.5 x 5.5 card base. I added a black card stock back the the house and glued it down. I had a blue dot by the ghost that was driving me crazy. It wasn't ink from my Copics, it was something in the paper, so after I coloured the sky I added some stars (to match the patterned paper) to cover it up. 

To make the frame around Frankie, I cut a polaroid die and trimmed the edges and bottom to fit my space. To keep the polaroid die full size covered up too much of the house so I chose to trim it. 
I stamped and cut the sentiment to size, added a die cut spider web and some matte dots to finish off the card.
