Gerda Steiner Halloween Slimline Card

I'm loving the new Lawn Fawn slimline card dies I picked up recently! They are so versatile! Here I decided to use the heart cut outs as windows to have my Halloween monsters peek out of. I stamped a few little details like "Ghoulish Greetings," "Boo" and some bats, a mouse, the moon and a star to add a little more detail to the design paper I chose, and then I stamped the sentiment "Boo from the crew" on a Spellbinders die cut for the inside of the card. I thought it was a cute sentiment to use with these darling little monsters from Gerda Steiner Designs. 

I cut out a few more of the little monsters for the inside of the card:
