Directions:

 

Note: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to use the Quickutz Squeeze tool.

 

Stick the two brads onto a piece of scratch paper. Use the Black Sharpie marker and color the brads. Set aside to dry.

 

Separate the layers of cheesecloth. Carefully drape the cheesecloth over your fingers to form the ghost. Place each layer on one at a time. Trim the edges of the cheesecloth to make the ghost about 3 ½” tall. Carefully pull along the edges of the cheesecloth to give it a more frayed look.

 

Place the ghost onto the 4 ½” x 7 ½” orange cardstock/printed paper, placing it a little to the left. Use a pin or paper piercer to make to small holes in the paper where the eyes should go. For the eyes, push the two brads through the cheesecloth and holes, adhering the ghost to the paper at the same time.

 

Use the Quickutz tool to die cut “Have a BOO – tiful Day” from black cardstock. Use the Quick Stik tool to place lettering. Place the “BOO” onto the 7/8” x 1 ½” white cardstock and adhere. Center onto the 1”x 1 Ό” orange cardstock. Place this sign onto the ghost and adhere. Place the rest of the wording around the ghost and adhere.

 

Center the “ghost” layer onto the 5” x 8” black cardstock and adhere. To make the base of the card, fold the 8 ½” x 11” orange cardstock in half using the bone folder to get a nice crease. Center the 5” x 8”black cardstock onto the front of the card and adhere.
