“Sew” Cute Ghost Card

Halloween's just a few days away, so I thought I'd whip out a ghost-themed tag / mini card.  To make it, I used DCWV Bewitched paper, fabric, Hero Arts alphabet stamps, Colorbox ink and yarn.  I drew the ghost on white fabric with pencil, then I sewed around it with my sewing machine and inked the edges to add some shading.  After that, it was just a matter of layering the different elements. 

After my card was finished, I attached it to a test tube filled with candy bones.  The test tube is from Martha Stewart's Halloween line of products.  Sometimes the hardest part of a "test tube treat" is figuring out what to put inside.  So here's a list of candy and their accompanying creepy names:

Gummy worms: Medusa Hair
Good and Plenty's (white): Troll Teeth 
Mike and Ike's: Dragon Toes
Jelly beans: Lizard Larva
Certs (left in the cylinder packaging) or other mints: Vampire Repellent
Coconut M&M's (white): Spider Eggs
Cinnamon Red Hot's: Slug Hearts
Candy pebbles: Swamp Rocks
Licorice (black): Rat Tails


  1. Very cute!!! I love this idea.

  2. Loving the fabric(ribbon?) frames on there.

  3. I love the card. It's so cute how you sew around the ghost. I thought the candy ideas were great. My wife is also a scrapbooker and I'm going to show her your post later tonight. Thanks for sharing.
