For this A2 card I started with white card stock that I added some orange Halloween paper to after inking the edges with black ink.  Next I stamped the Spider Web from the Spooky Greetings stamp set with Versamark and then heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment and the witches hat from the same stamp step with VersaMark and then heat embossed those with black embossing powder too.  Then I took some black paper and ran it through my Vagabond with the Cottage Cutz RIP Bat Tombstone die and then I placed that on the card.  Now aren't you feeling SPOOKY?

For my second card I used the Fall Time Planner stamp set


Here is my card:
