Step 1. Using a ruler and cutting tool, cut the grid pattern in 1″ increments. Within those 1″ pieces, cut out a smaller square. Where some of the lines meet, punch a whole for added interest. Lay a piece of Black Magic Cardstock underneath it and score the lines that will appare in the negative image of the squares you just cut.
Step 2. Flip over the Black Magic and sand the scored lines, remove dust with Dust Buddy. Line them up again and adhere. Add your additional elements like the sanded doily cut from Chalk Core. Cut the ghosts from the vellum cardstock.
Step 3. Emboss a piece of vellum and add your title along with some additional embellishments.
