Boo - the cutest ghosts ever!

I'm wanting to get into the Halloween mood, so I made these cute ghosts. The adorable faces are from the FACE IT dingbat font. You can get it here for free:

It has tons of faces and look like the Peachy Keen set of stamps

I used the ghost from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. If you don't have that you can use these:

Here are the SIMPLE basic directions:

Print the face you want onto white cardstock. I used 72 size, but experiment with the sizes

Cut your ghost out of cardstock - preferably a dark color*
*When you cut your ghost, use the upper right corner for the positioning of the ghost (If you are using the PDDU shape you need to "hide" the eyes and mouth using the hide selected contour feature - click on the mouth and then right click, you will see it). After you hit cut, wait until it is done, then DO NOT unload the paper, just pull your ghost shape out of the dark paper and leave the rest on the mat. Now lift the upper right corner where your silhouette cut is and slip your white cardstock underneath the cut out shape until it is in the position that you want. Press the white cardstock well and only now lift your dark color. Now hit LOAD LAST and then cut or repeat last. It will cut your white cardstock with the same shape and your face will be on it.

Experiment with different faces and different shapes, such as the paper dolls or even some of the cute animals.

These are so fun!!
