Combine Haunted Dome Layers and the Adriana Easel Set by Jean Okimoto


Halloween somehow makes it OK to layer everything onto a single card - here's my example.  Layers upon layers and stacked, overlapped diecuts create a spooky scene for you today.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with the upright, intended version of an Adriana Easel card.  


Cut the card front and easel sections of the Poppystamps Adriana Easel Set from red-orange cardstock.  


Fold the narrow top tab of the easel backwards on the scoreline.  Fold the easel forward on the 2nd scoreline.  Press both folds with a bonefolder.  Pressure-emboss the card front with the leafy oval die from the Adriana set using the plates and embossing mat required for your machine.

Align and attach the card front to the folded easel - the tab supports the card front.  Cut the leafy oval from black cardstock and attach it to the pressure-embossed card front.  Embossing adds extra dimension and makes it easy to attach the delicate diecut as an inset layer.

Cut Haunted House Dome Layer from dark kraft cardstock.  Cut a ½" circle of the pale yellow-white sheet in the 6x6 Dedlicate Pastel Glitter Pad.  Cut the Haunted Dome Entrance Layer from the red-orange cardstock.  Trim both dome layers along the bottom scoreline, removing about ¼" of cardstock  Cut three ghosts - from the Haunted Dome Entrance set - from heavy white cardstock. Define the eyes using a piercing tool.  Attach a black cardstock scrap behind one of the small ghosts for the mouth.  The other two will be layered over the black background.

Cut the bat from theblack Frosted Glitter Pad 6x6 sheet.  Assemble the spooky scene by layering everything over the black background.

Stamp the greeting, frame and leaves from the Halloween Pumpkin Clear Stamp and Die set on orange-red cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine.  Dry the ink then diecut the leaves and frame.  Shade the edges with Onyx Black ink.


Cut the long, narrow easel "stopper" from the black glittered 6x6 sheet.  Cut another one from a cardboard scrap and layer them for dimension.

Hope you like the detailed, layered look of this card - definitely not CAS - but it's OK, it's Halloween!
