A "Different Fold" Card

Happy Monday to everyone!!!  Hope you had a great weekend.  We had a nice weekend and now time to get back to the week of busy!!!! 

This week at the A Muse Consultant Challenge Blog we are previewing some of the new items in the Holiday Catalog which goes lives August 15th.  I have a couple of cards there as well as cards from other Consultants.  You may want to go and take a look.

Here is the Halloween Card I did.  I will list below the items I used and the paper dimensions if you would like to try the "different fold" card. 

Onyx cardstock:  PAPS100
1 piece cut 5 1/2"x 4 1/4"
1 piece cut 5 1/2"x3"  Scored at 4 1/4" and folded on score line
1 Circle from Nestabilites...I used a cut out scalloped border nestie.
Orange Chevron cardstock:  PACV301
1 piece cut 5 1/4"x4"
Orange Petite Polka Dot cardstock:  PAPP301
1 piece cut 2 3/4"x4"
Onyx Petite Polka Dot cardstock:  PAPP100
1 Classic Circle Nestabilitie
Sugar cardstock:  PAPS001
Scraps to stamp three ghosts
Stamp Set:....SNSD081
Happy Haunting
Die Set:  TAD0061
Happy Haunting Die Set
Ink Pad:  IVFP082
Versafine Onyx Black
Watercolors & watercolor brush
Die Cutting Machine

Adhere the smaller onyx piece of cardstock to the bigger onyx piece, adhering the smaller flap piece to the bigger piece.  This gives you the opening part of the card.  You then adhere the chevron cardstock to the bigger black piece.  Adhere the orange petite polka dot to the small onyx "flap" piece.  Next you can adhere the onyx petite polka dot circle to the larger onyx scalloped circle.  Cut out three ghosts using the Happy Haunting die set.  Stamp the matching ghosts onto the die cuts.  Watercolor the outer edges of the ghosts with green watercolor paint.  Adhere two of the ghosts to the black circle and the other ghost to the chevron piece of cardstock so it is peeping out from the circle.  Stamp sayings of your choice from the stamp set onto your card.  ENJOY!!!

I hope you enjoyed the card today.  If you need any help with the instructions please email me. 

Have a great Monday!!!!!!

God Bless!!!!!
