Ghost Halloween Card

By Kathleen Hernandez

Halloween remains as an occasion that I would prefer not to be a part of. LOL I’m not a fan of creepy and frightening sights and stuff, thus, I’m glad that we don’t celebrate them much here in my country.

I have to admit though that I would most of the time marvel at the ingenuity of the various costumes and decors I would see on display on selected stores in my country. And I would just ogle at photos shown of Halloween celebration in other countries. Their costumes and decors are indeed wonderful works of art!

As a kid, the idea of ghosts would be the most frightening thing for me from the supernatural forces. I guess that would be my concept of Halloween until I got introduced to various fictional characters from other countries that are shown in TV shows. For this, “ghosts” is the inspirational theme of one of my handmade Halloween cards. I hope you’ll enjoy perusing over my Halloween card tutorial. Happy hunting and happy crafting! Here’s me saying, “trick or treat!”.
