A Card 4 You...BOO!

I am so excited to share the card that I made last night using Laura's fun sketch over on 2 sketches 4 you. The sketch inspired me to create a tri-fold card, which is not something I usually do. And I had been waiting to play with the awesome Halloween kit I received from Julie (specialcraftmom) who recently started up a new online store (scrapbookstoreatyourdoor). The kit is called Fright Night and has some great Bo-Bunny paper, cute die cuts, and fabulous fibers (along with a few other goodies). So, here is what I came up with. What do you think???

Then when you go to open the card you see this...


Too CUTE, right?!
And, I really wanted a finished look to the inside too so I covered two of the sides with coordinating papers. I think in the middle I am going to mat a cute picture of my boys in their Halloween costumes and write a little Happy Halloween note to send to my grandma in California.

And since I used several die-cuts for this card, I am also entering it into Caardvarks "Live and Let Die" challenge.

So, now for all the details of this card. I started with a 6 x 12" piece of Bazzill white cardstock. Then I scored it at 4.75" and 9.5", leaving a 2.5" piece for the flap. I covered both sides of the flap with the striped paper. Then I marked the middle of the flap and drew the curves that I wanted to cut out. I covered the die cut spider web with crystal ice stickles and let dry before adhering to the flap. I added google eyes to the die cut spider and bent it's legs to give it more dimension. I tucked two of the spider's legs under part of the web and used a little tombo mono multi-glue to attach the back feet. The rest was easy...I just covered the other part of the card with coordinating paper (on both sides), tied the fun fibers around the card, and glued the BOO letters down so they would be hidden under the flap when the card was closed. Hope you enjoyed this card! I had a lot of fun making it. Thanks for stopping by, have a fa-BOO-lus day! :)



Oh, and here is a picture of the all the goodies in the Fright Night Kit that I got HERE. I think I am going to make a mini album with the rest of this great kit.
