Tri-fold House of Haunts


This tri-fold card was made for my brother and sister-in-law.  The quartz paper was sponged with Distressed Black Soot and using dies I cut the spider web and cat.  They were popped up on the front of the card along with the spooky clasp I created.

I stamped the haunted house in StazOn Black on glossy white paper then created a mask for the moon using a 1 3/8" circle punch.  The clouds were stamped in Close to Cocoa.  The background was sponged in Crushed Curry, More Mustard, Dusty Durango and Distressed Black Soot.

On the right side of the card I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark then Dusty Durango and embossed it with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  The bats and crow were stamped in StazOn Black and also embossed. 

To keep the card closed, I added craft magnets and a piece of 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in Basic Black as a pull tab.

The creepy web die is from Memory Box.

Middle portion of the card.

Since I mailed this to him in a clear box I decided to wrap it like a present.
