Hey everyone, Halloween is not too far away now!  What little ghouls and goblins wouldn't love to receive a sweet Halloween card?

Start with a pre-made card and cut brown cardstock to fit.
Using the Spidey Rollagraph Wheel and Espresso Pigment Ink, ink across a sheet of white cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment in ColorBox Classic Espresso Pigment Ink and emboss with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.  Using an art dauber, ink the edges with  ColorBox Classic Espresso Pigment Ink.

Spritz the panel with ColorBox Premium by Stephanie Barnard Sprays in Tangerine.

Using a baby wipe, rub over the panel to smooth out the color.

Spritz ColorBox Premium by Stephanie Barnard Sprays in Tangerine into a plastic bag and add a little water.  Place sheer ribbon in the bag and gently massage the color into the ribbon.

Doesn't the ribbon look amazing?

Tie the ribbon around the panel and add to the card. 

Tie some twine around the ribbon and add the sentiment on top with foam adhesives.
