I made this mixed media Halloween card just especially for you today. It was quite easy to do, and the really cool thing is that no two will ever look alike.

Cut Black Classic Glitter card stock to 10" x 7", fold in half to make 5" x 7" card base.
Cut Damask Black and White card stock to 10" x 7".
Halloween Bingo onto the reverse side of Orange Glitter Crackle and Halloween Glitter Stripe card stock using VersaMark ink and black detail embossing powder. Heavily distress and ink the bingo card edges. I used the Gathered Twigs DS to get a deep, dark, rich, almost burnt effect on the edges. Every time I use my mixed mediums, I learn something new. Adhere the bingo card to the front at a slight angle.
I made one more embellishment to add to the card using a couple of crystal beads slipped onto a corsage pin and held in place with a plastic ear night (the white piece in the photo). I used a green Copic marker to colorize the pearl on the top. I attached it to the paper (upper right in finished photo above).
Classified card stock.
Follow directions with the die to tape make the envelope and attach the string ties. Before attaching the round ties with the eyelets, insert one end of the twine through the hole in the top flap, insert the eyelet and set.
Stamp Boo and Goblin in Versamark and emboss with white embossing powder. Edge card corners with white pigment ink and heat set. Add two mini yellow dew drops to the eyes.
black and orange diamond shaped dew drops along top of envelope.
Owl now shows through window and the paper designs match perfectly. How cool is that?
And here is what the back looks like.
