Special-fold Halloween card...

This Halloween card was made with half a sheet of 12" X 12" paper.  First I cut the sheet in half.  Then I scored one of the resulting 6" X 12" pieces on the long side at 2", 4", 8" and 10". Then I measured 3" up from each end and made a mark.  I cut off a triangular piece from the left mark to the top of the 4" score line.  I cut another triangular piece from the top of the 8" score line to the right mark.

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.

Love your clever folds and how you decorated each panel. That is a fun folder and great font on the Creepy.
