Spooky!

I hope everyone in the UK remembered to put their clocks back last night and enjoyed an extra hour in bed. 

I don't usually make Halloween cards, but as there are a few spooky challenges at the moment, I thought I'd make a spooky pop-up box card today.


I started with a black piece of card measuring 10 1/4" x 6 1/2" to make the basic box shape. All the other pieces of card I used were snippets.  The orange panels were embossed with a pumpkin Cuttlebug embossing folder from the 'Happy Hauntings' set.  The white flaps were embossed with an Embossalicious 'Petite Dots' embossing folder.  I used MB 'Alphabet Soup' die cut letters, layered on SB die cuts.  The spiders on the side flaps were cut with a very old Sizzlet die.   All the die cuts popping up are from an Impression Obsession 'Halloween' die set and attached on strips of acetate.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  3. A wonderful collection of spooky things in this Halloween pop up box Liz. They look great on the strips of acrylic which from a distance makes them look as though they are floating in mid air. Great fun! x
