Lil Inker August Release Day 3

Hey there, blog friends!  Welcome to day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs August release!  This month's release is SUPER fun, and today I am focusing on all the awesome Halloween goodies that are included in it!   I've combined my new Lil' Inker Designs product with the new My Mind's Eye Halloween collection, "Frightful", and they were a perfect match!!

For this card I combined the Classic Halloween stamp set with the Stitched Ghosts die set, and came up with this whimsical & fun design!  I've added multiple layers, including textures like tulle & trim, and utilized vellum to add the sentiment over top of the diecut ghosts.  This way they still peek through!!

For this card I cut the Ghost Border die from cream colored felt cut to fit the width of an A2 card, then also used the Spooky Word die at the bottom of the felt piece. I layered it all together to the card front, then finished the sentiment using the Boo & Faces stamp set.  How adorable is that ghost border?!!  I am in love with it!!

Here is a look at everything I used today!
