Halloween Popup Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have an easy Halloween scene card featuring the new Ghost in the Forest die as a frame to highlight a spooky sky. 



Die cut the Ghosts in the Forest frame die from an A2 size black paper panel.  Die cut the ghosts from the same set out of white card stock. Cut 2 strips of black card stock to 1" x 5/1/2".  Score each strip at the 1/4" make, flip over and score at the 1/2" mark  and flip back over again and score at the 3/4" mark. Fold the strips with the score marks like an accordion. Glue the 2 strips on either side of the frame, setting something heavy so they stay in place while the glue dries.



Ink blend Distress Oxide ink Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Dusty Concord on a white A2 size panel.  Splatter with water and dry off with a towel. Die cut the Rickety House die out of Kraft Woodgrain Paper. For the roof and door die cut again out of black card stock.  Use your finger to rub on Distress Oxide Walnut Stain ink over the Woodgrain house die cut.  Glue on the roof to the house.  Trim down the lightest yellow from the Sunny Orange paper pad to fit behind the house and adhere.  Glue on the door over the yellow paper. Line up the house on the background panel with the frame. Draw in a path to the door using a black color pencil.  Adhere the house to the background panel.



Die cut Happy Halloween Posh Scrip bottom die from a matching purple from the Twilight Purple pack and the top from matching orange form the Sunny Orange pack and adhere together.  Die cut the word BOO from the same paper combo using the Twiggy Alphabet die set.  Adhere together.  



Adhere the background panel to an A2 top fold card.  Adhere the frame panel by folding down the paper "springs" and add glue.  Adhere to the front of the card.  Set the same heavy object on it until the glue dries.  Adhere the Happy Halloween sentiment to the inside of the card and BOO to the top of the opening of the woods.
