Layered Boo






Hooray, today is the Lovely Layers Denami Blog Hop!

If you've arrived from the awesomely talented Britta's Blog, then you are on the right track. Isn't her bright card superb? The Denami Design Blog has all the details and complete list, if you want to start from the beginning or should get lost.

Even though we are smack dab in the middle of summer, I wanted to play with the new release and feature a layered tag. The little friendly ghost makes me smile so!

Layer 1: Ghots: After heat embossing and fussy cutting a few ghosts from vellum paper, I adhered them to a sheet of transparency with some enamel accents behind their eyes only.
Layer 2: Black Boo: A piece of black cardstock was run through my cuttlebug using an impression plate, then I added some letter stickers.
Layer 3: Dotted Transparency: A plain piece of transparency was run through the embossing machine using the same impression plate as the Boo layer.
Layer 4: Purple Halloweeen: I heat embossed Happy Halloween greeting on purple cardstock.

The whole tag is set with a large eyelet and tied with some fun polka dotted orange ribbon.

Here's a view of the tag before turning the layers to reveal the hidden greeting.


Your next stop is one of my first ever blogging pals, the ultra talented and ultra sweet Lisa!

  1. These are so sweet Karen. I know you embossed the vellum in this case, but on occasion have you embossed on acetate as well or used Stayz-On ink? I thought you embossed on it, but how would it not melt? :) Thanks for your help as always!

  2. You are so amazing with the clear layers, love the idea of them being embossed. Josh says your card says "ghost"... even thought I keep saying it says boo... but he likes it too.

  17. So cute! And fun to shake it up at an unconventional time!! When reading your title I couldn't for the life of me figure out what you were referring in "boos." I thought maybe your previous nights party had been so intense as to interfere with your spelling. :)
