Boo04489I used the fun Kitty & Jack image along with the new Boo die for my Halloween card. This image is a lot of fun to color! I also stamped, colored and fussy cut just the kitty & jack part to pop up on top of the base image. The base image was die cut w/ a large circle and I trimmed of the bottom just below the rock wall & added a larger die cut circle behind it. Boo was die cut out of a dot embossed textured black & stacked on top of 2 more die cut Boo’s for a little depth. The large distressed orange dp was stamped with the new Wood Background image using the rusty hinge ink. I punched one black bat fence and another out of a black Halloween text print..the solid black fence has some yellow highlights added to the top.

The yellow leafy dp on the left was a leftover strip from something else and I used a curved border die on the right edge & added some black faux stitch lines. On the inside, I added some leftover dp and punched bat fence to frame the fun Fraidycat greeting.
