The thing I love about cards is that they are perfect for any season or holiday! I love Halloween, so I knew I had the make the perfect card to celebrate! It's no secret that I love stitched paper, which is why I added a stitched 'Boo' to the front of my card.
This card is more cute than spooky (if I do say so myself!). I love that ripped pieces of paper can be turned into a mummy with a little help from Tim Holtz Distress Ink! Since the paper strips are all different, you can really see the texture of each strip by adding Distress Ink.
