World Card Making Day – Halloween Double Fun Fold

halloween-double-fun-fold-1

Here’s a super fun card for any occasion. I got this idea from a great demo named Dawn Griffith. Of course, I put my own spin on it. This card has a double flip opening as the name implies. This is what it looks like out of the envelope.

Now, let’s open the first flap.

A nice little surprise inside but wait…let’s open the black card.

What fun!

I love this technique and I’m sure I will use it over and over again with different themes. I seem to be into flip cards and different folded cards. Now when I do a regular card it seems so plain!

This card is not difficult…here are some simple directions:

Pumpkin Pie CS:  card – 5 1/2″ x 6 1/4″ on the 6 1/4″ side score at 2″;   (2)   3″ x 3 1/2″

Black CS – 5 1/4″ x 8″ score at 4″

Whisper White CS – (2)  2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″;  3 3/4″ x 5″ for inside

Use a 1 1/4″ circle punch to make a mask for the moons. Sponge on the small white pieces starting with Daffodil Delight and going over with Tangerine Tango

Tip:  place the second small piece first then line up the front piece so they match. VERY important…only put adhesive on one side of the front square 🙂

Since the Black card is a bit smaller you just center it onto the Pumpkin Pie card (opening backwards)

 

Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Halloween Treat, Spooky Fun

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie Stampin Write Marker

Paper – Pumpkin Pie, Black, Whisper White

 

I did make a card today but I’m not ready to share it. I will shortly. I decided I’d finish up with Halloween Cards first.  I have a couple Thanksgiving cards to share then…CHRISTMAS! I love making Christmas cards. I also make a few Hanukkah cards but we don’t have any new sets so I’ll be using my old standby the retired set Jewish Celebrations.

I hope you were able to find some time today to make a card. If you did…please send a photo to me and I will post your card on my blog and choose one lucky stamper to win a nice Stampin’ Up! gift.

Until my next post…Happy Stamping!
