A boo to you card with a turning ghost - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today it is my turn again to post something on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs and this time I have made a mini slimline halloween card with a special effect. I have stamped the funny ghosts from the stamp set A boo to you from Gerda Steiner designs and then I coloured them with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen. I have coloured the ghosts also with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle glitter pen.

The mini slimline card is made with the die set Mini slimline B (CLCZ83) from Crealies. I have made the card from white cardstock. The second layer is cut from black cardstock. The purple patterned paper is from the Classic sunburst paperpad from Sunny studio. I have cut a couple of clouds from white cardstock with the Spooky clouds (retired) from Taylored expressions and I glued those on the purple paper. I added stars that I have cut with the Star confetti die from Alexandra Renke from black cardstock. 

The upper ghost can turn when you pull the white cord and to make this I followed a tutorial (dutch spoken) from Crealies. For the squares and circles for the mechanism I have used the die sets Crea-nest-lies XXL 21 from Crealies and Crea-nest-lies XXL 22 from Crealies. I have added a little clip with my turning ghost more down below in this post. After I glued the ghosts both on the card I have added a sentiment that I have stamped on the card with a sentiment from the set Peekin' pumpkin kitty from Gerda Steiner designs
