Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Fancy Fold Cute Halloween. If you have just joined me from Melissa Seplowitz, the Stamping Ninja, Welcome!
I am certain Melissa will have shared an amazing project with you all. If you have visited before, welcome back for another fancy fold Halloween Card.
My Fancy fold today is an adaptation of the W card. This is remarkably simple to make once you get your head around it. All you need to start is a standard card base cut from a long and thin half a sheet, scored in the middle. Now cut a strip of card from the full length of a sheet (mine is 2″/5cm).
Score in the middle and at the quarter points (I am not giving measurements as you can use any size card for this). Next cut 2 pieces of Basic White to fit the inside and stick these to the two halves. I stamped spiders and ‘Spooky!’ on the Basic White, towards the middle of the card, so they would be visible underneath the W element.
For the panels on the W, I used the same Basic Black card and cut pieces slightly narrower than the length of the folds. The height of the panels depends on how large you want it, and how much of a gap you want at the bottom. The idea of this card is that the top of the panel is level with the top of the card.
I cut patterned paper for each panel and then fussy cut some of the images to add on top. I love dimension on my cards, so for me this was an obvious choice, but it would be just as cute without.
For the outside I went for a fairly simple design of paper, layered on more Basic Black. I added some Die Cut letters for ‘BOO!’, cut from Black Glitter Paper with Adhesive foam sheet behind. These were layered on a label die cut from the Festive Finishes in purple Ombre Specialty Paper. I used the same Ombre Specialty Paper for the ghosts too!
With the outside plain it makes the inside is a real surprise. I hope you like the project and will give it a go. Now you will want to continue the hop. I am THRILLED to ask you to now go and visit my good friend Stacey Marsh. Stacey is one of the nicest people you could wish to meet, and a fantastic crafter, so I know you are in for a treat.
