Ghostly Greetings

Hello friends! I think that we should do a Halloween In July especially since it is only 100 days until the big day!. I am already on the hunt for new Halloween decorating items. I generally start decorating inside the last week of August into the first week of September. I have been collecting and building a Halloween village for about 20 years now, so that alone takes me two solid days to put up. It currently sits on four 6' x 2' tables. I will post pictures later in the year.

Anyway, Ghosts want to have fun too, so this pair decided to take a trip to the beach in their spook mobile. Their bat friends even came along.

For this card the back ground was inked with Distress Ink in Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Villainous Potion and Black Soot for the sky and sea. The beach is Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. I used the Beach Sunset Stencil and the Hillside stencil.

The palm trees are from the Christmas Palm Tree and Palm Tree Dies. I cut the light strand from the Christmas Palm Tree for the smaller palm tree.

The car is from Car Critters and the little beach equipment and bike are from Car Critters Road Trip Add On. The little ghosts in the car are from Happy Haunting which I believe is a retired stamp set, but I am sure there are other ghosts that would work also. I drew in the steering wheel and gave the passenger a pair sunglasses. The bat on the car and bats in the sky are from the Tiny Halloween stamp set. The "eeek" on the license plate is also from that set.

The sentiment on the outside and the inside is from the Spooky Village stamp set.

I added glitter accents all over the card using a glue pen and micro glitter.

I had a ton of fun making this card and I hope you have been inspired to make a card for your own spooky outing.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
