Frankenstein Halloween Card

    Hello hello's been a little while since I last had the chance to post, so I am very excited for the opportunity to share with you today.  I am very much looking forward to Halloween this year as it means I get to mark another month off the hubby's deployment calendar.  ;) No but really I am excited, the little ones are always so much fun getting dressed up to trick-or-treat. I thought it would be fun to try out a Halloween card......thinking we just might have to send this one to daddy!!

   Here is the front of our Frankenstein Halloween Card

I did what is called a double Z-fold card.  I started with Glitter Orange Crackle cardstock, using the plain orange side cutting a piece that was 12x4.  You are going to score the cardstock at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches.
  I then used Glitter Halloween Stripe cardstock for the two front sections and the inside of the card.  The two pieces on the front are 1 3/4 x 1 3/4.  The one in the middle is 3 3/4 x 3 3/4.

Next I made a band measuring 8 1/2 x 1 1/2, making sure to adhere it together at the back of the card.  I stamped a cute Frankenstein on the orange side of the Glitter Orange Crackle cardstock and glued it to the band, then added a few orange dew drops as a final touch.  The finished card size is 4x4.

On the inside I used a large circle punch of Black Glitter Chipboard and a smaller circle again in the Glitter Orange Crackle cardstock (orange side) and stamped a little "Happy Halloween".

All in all I love how this double Z-fold card turned out and plan on using it again on many other card ideas!  Well it's been fun to share with you all once again and I hope this finds everyone happy, healthy and living well, until next time!!

Happy Crafting!!
