Handmade Halloween Cards - How to make a Ghost

The instructions on how to make the Halloween Ghost with Full Moon card are in my previous posting. Here I will show you how to draw the ghost for this card. See further bellow.

To make this card you will need:

  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Dark blue card paper (15 x 15cm)
  • Black card paper (approx. 15 x 15cm)
  • White card paper with slightly greyish tone for the ghost (approx. 8 x 8 cm)
  • 4 green adhesive gems (I used gems 2mm thick)
  • Mango yellow card paper for the full moon (approx. 10 x 10 cm)
  • Double sided tape
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick) 

I have set up and online shop - CRAFT MAGIC ONLINE SHOP- on my blog (top right corner). You can now purchase many crafting supplies right here. The shop is powered by Amazon, so you would be making the purchase through Amazon. I have just selected (and sorted into various categories) crafting products that Amazon sells. My blog's shop is divided into 2 parts; one offers paper crafting and scrapbooking supplies and the other one is for crafty kids and offers variety of beautiful crafty kits and products designed for children. 

Instructions on how to draw the ghost:

I took pictures at various stages of making the ghost for my Halloween Ghost and Full Moon card. This should make it easier. 

 Draw a shape as in the picture above. 5cm at widest point and 6 cm at highest point - to create the same sized ghost as on my card.

Then draw hands and wavy sheet following the previously drawn outline.

 And cut the ghost out. Attach 2 green gems to the ghost as eyes.

In my next posts I will show you in detail how to draw the castle ruin (with the uneven cut crenelations), and the bat. This will be followed by couple handmade Halloween Treat Bags.
