Halloween card

A new challenge blog has started. I missed the first few weeks and was only because I went via some links that I happened upon it. It being Making Halloween Cards! This fortnights challenge. #4, is "Tags and Tall"
"I can do this" thinks me. I'm all glitzed out from making other projects and needed some respite. Back to the darker side of me.
So a 3 tag card. I had just the stamps. A set of 9 from Inkadinkadoo, haunted house inchies.
3 stamps per tag. Using scraps of orange, red and rust card stock. The main card was well and truely ink distressed with black soot DI. and 3 square apertures cut out. The front covered in deep green, again that black DI with a Smeared Ink "Holy City" graveyard.

I constructed some carriers for the tags and adhered inside. This enables the tags to be moved in and out so that all pics can be seen.

I just happened to have some halloween ribbon, so this was stapled to the tags.

The carriers were covered with a handmade paper panel. More ink and a grid pattern stamped on.
The opposite is just some orange paper, and you guessed it, more black DI.

I am entering this into the challenge over at
Making Halloween Cards #4 - Tags and Tall
