 I thought I'd finish off the hop with a fun and EASY Halloween card. I used stamps from two new clear Halloween sets: Is the Moon out Tonight and Creepy. I added a little scalloped edge along the side of the card using Border Die Duo 2. Of course I manged to work my two "standards" in... piercing and a bow!

 I stamped the verse multiple times from the Creepy set. I sponged a little black around the edges and added a 1/16" Border mat using my Perfect Layer Rulers. After adding the mat then I cut out a circle using my nesties. I used a hard bristle brush to add a little messy Copic Opaque White paint.

My sentiment is popped up on the white layer behind the verse panel, leaving a little recessed area in between the circles. The corner had just enough room for a little die cut black cat!

Here's the inside... of course every halloween needs a little spider! I added the Fancy Cut Out Border Die along the side. I made a little banner from the Boo sentiment.
