Purple & black ghostie

For this card, I purchased Magician Boo by Di's Digi Stamps:
The notch swing card and starburst buttons were designed in Sure Cut A Lot (SCAL) and cut with my Silhouette electronic die-cutting machine. All of my Notch Swing Cards are archived here

I printed the image onto shiny purple paper (Recollections) and heat-embossed it in purple (Stampendous). I did the same thing for the hat, but on shiny black paper. I also printed it on white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers and Sakura pens, and covered the ghost with glow-in-the dark glitter.

The background is a purple/black Core'Dinations paper that I embossed with Cuttlebug folder and sanded. The baker's twine and ribbon are from my stash.

The sentiment was made in InDesign with Chinchilla and
Chinchilla Dots.I printed it on shiny black paper and heat-embossed it with a glittery-white embossing powder. I traced the purple circle and cut it out with deckle scissors, and added border with purple Liquids Pearls.

This wonderful Lizard Wizard is a rubber stamp my Mom found somewhere and gifted to me. I've had it almost a year, and was so glad to have an opportunity to ink it up. This is probably my last Halloween card for this year; I sent it out today!
