Welcome to the first day of the "So...What's New?" Blog Hop. If you arrived here from My Craft and Chat Cafe, you are heading in the right direction. If not, then you will need to go there to start the hop. I will be offering a prize from my blog, but you will have to read to the end to find out how to win and what the prize is that I am giving away.
My project is a Halloween card. Here's the front of the card:
I embossed the pumpkin cut and background cream paper using the Cuttlebug embossing folders. The sentiment was stamped, sprinkled with silver embossing powder and heated to melt it.
Now onto the inside of the card:
To make the "pop-up" feature, I had welded tabs to the bottom on the boo cut to attach it to the bottom half of the card. Then, a piece from some plastic packaging was used to connect the boo cut to the ghost cuts. Finally, a scrap piece of transparency was used to attached the ghost to the the top half of the card.
