Special-fold Halloween card...
I think the embossing folder that I used was by Darice, and the "Creepy" sentiment and the bat were cut from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. Don't you love that "Creepy" font? I used some Memento London Fog ink to do a little shading on the embossing. Love how that turned out, too.
Here's a side view that shows how I decorated each panel after making the mountain and valley folds. A couple of spooky eyes and some speech bubbles was all it took.
The other panel has a couple of small banners that say "Happy Halloween." There is room underneath the banners to sign the card and write a brief note with a white gel pen.
And a quick peek at the other side - more eyes and speech bubbles on the purple panel and a skull and crossbones sticker on the black panel.
Using double-sided paper gives this card a fun look, even from the back!
I really like trying new card folds. This one was one of the easier ones to make and embellish. If you've got some Halloween cards yet to make, give it a try. It comes together pretty quickly.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
