I created this card for a swap based on all our great new products in the 2014 Holiday Catalog. It is almost a case, but I'd really call it "inspired by..." because I combined ideas from several different cards. I've seen a few samples in which the tall house was bent, another with the moon in a Tangelo Twist sky and Baked Brown Sugar ground (but that one had different stamps, size and design). 
The set I featured is Holiday Home, and there is a set of coordinating framelits to cut out the houses (although I didn't need them for this card). You can see some of the ideas that inspired me on my Holiday Catalog Inspiration page.

HOLIDAY HOME photopolymer set of 24 stamps for only $15.95!
135095 (English version; also available in French and Spanish)
Bundle with the Framelits and save %15!

Correction: the chimney is Baked Brown Sugar

When your haunted house on the hill panel is done, adhere it to a Basic Black card size panel, then put that panel on the front of a card! (Or, use a black card and inside write with white ink, or add a light-colored panel to write on).

Want to step it up? Add Dazzling Details or Dazzling Diamonds Glitter accents to the tree branches, moon, ghost, windows and/or ??? Add a shadow from the house on the hillside with a darker ink color such as Early Espresso or Smokey Slate (sponge it on). Stamp the sentiment on a punched or framelit-cut label shape and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
