Peekaboo Frames for Halloween

The Peekaboo Die Cut Frames featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog are not only great for making an Advent Calendar, but are great for adding a cute window or frame to any card or project.

To make my card I started with Basic Black Cardstock and a piece of Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper which were embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.  I stamped my Happy Halloween and cut it out to fit the die cut frame, which was also embossed with the Spider Web folder.  I added the extra BOO which is from Spooky Bingo Bits, another great Halloween Stamp Set containing 24 Halloween images. Because the inside of the card was too dark to add a written message, I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock stamped with the candelabra to add some more spooky elements.

To adhere my frame to the front of the card I added a piece of Sticky Strip to the top, and used my 2-Way Glue Pen for the sides and bottom.
