Ghost Birthday

October 8, 2016

Cheri Moss just posted a video on the Lawn Fawn blog that used medical tape to create a “mummy” ish background. So, I raided my medicine cabinet and gave it a try.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by clear embossing the chevron strips on a black card base. (I actually made four of these card bases which is why you have been so many of them on my blog lately.)

Next, I cut a piece of black card stock to about the size of a card front. I coved the card stock with the medical tape, making sure to overlap the tape and cover all of the black card stock. Using a stitched rectangle, I die cut the taped piece. Using the same stitched rectangle, I die cut a second piece of black card stock. From the second piece I also cut a grassy border strip and a forest border strip.

Using Distress Inks, I added some color to the taped panel. I attempted to make a moon scene. I left a white circle and progressively worked out from yellows to oranges. It is very hard to see, but adds some subtle interest.

I adhered the forest border flat to the taped panel. I heat embossed the sentiment in silver on the grass strip before popping it up on fun foam. I adhered the taped panel to my card base after that.

Lastly, I raided my box of pre colored and pre cut images. I found the wagon with the pumpkins, some pumpkins, and a little velum ghost. I added all of those to my card and it was done.
