The Scary Cute Stamp Set and Scary Silhouettes Dies were used to create today’s card. I made a pop-up card several weeks ago and chose to use the same fun fold on this card. What’s better than having scary images pop-up at you than in a Halloween card!
I started with a Gray Granite card base. I used a piece of the Black & White Designs 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in a zig-zag pattern and colored the white areas in Stampin’ Blends in Pumpkin Pie and Highland Heather. I could have left the paper black and white, but I wanted a pop of color. This panel was adhered to the card front.
Using the Scary Silhouettes Dies I die cut a frame with branches from Basic Black cardstock, then cut a solid panel using just the rectangular die. These pieces became the sentiment label. The sentiment “Halloween Happiness” was stamped on the Gorgeous Grape die cut rectangle in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The rectangle and its frame were glued together and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I created the backdrop panel and used Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Gorgeous Grape and Starry Sky inks and blended an evening sky onto the white panel using blending brushes. This panel was glued to the backside of the card front (when the card is open, this would be the top card base panel).
Two strips of white cardstock were blended with Daffodil Delight and were then glued onto the top and front of the pop-up mechansim. I could have used Daffodil Delight cardstock for this but I wanted the yellow to appear seamless with the yellow sky of the large backdrop panel.
The haunted house, bats and cat were all die cut in Basic Black cardstock using the Scary Silhouettes Dies. I also die cut a branch and some greenery from the Harvest Dies in black cardstock. The branch becomes a tree and the greenery becomes a bush!
The yellow strips were glued to the top and front of the pop-up mechanism and the pop-up mechanism was glued into place at the 5-1/2″ score line and adhered to both inside panels of the card base. The haunted house, tree, bats and moon were all adhered to the large ink blended panel. The cat and shrub pieces were adhered to the front of the pop-up mechanism. I cut a thin strip of black cardstock to the width of the card and with a pair of snips, cut a hill and adhered this to the front of the pop-up mechanism as well.
A sentiment for the inside of the card was stamped onto a white panel, along with several bats, then matted to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock then adhered to the inside of the card.
To finish off the card, a large loopy bow was tied using the Black & White Gingham Ribbon and adhered to the card front, just under the sentiment label. I also used several purple Glossy Dots on the card front. The envelope front was decorated with bats stamped in Memento ink and the envelope flap was decorated with a coordinating piece of DSP.
This is such a fun set to play with! If you have young children or grandchildren, they would love to receive and display this card! I hope you give it a try!
