Trick-or-Treat Card

Hello, My Friends!

My good friend Gretchen Schmidt, sent me this great card! {She is so awesome to share with us!}  This card is one of my favorites for two reasons.

1.  It has a POP UP!  ;)

2.  It has STAMPS!  :)

Pop ups and stamping go so well together!  ;)

Directions -
Create a 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” card base out of kraft cardstock, fold in half to create your card. Cut a second card front that is 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”. Stamp spider webs on the card front and on the inside of the card base.
Outside: Stamp three pumpkins onto cream cardstock. Cut out each into a square. Glue pumpkins onto blue patterned paper, hand cut out each into a square shape. Glue down all three to a piece of black cardstock and cut it out into a rectangle shape as shown in example. Cut a larger pieces of Halloween themed patterned paper and glue to card front. Tie a ribbon around the card front and set it aside. When the inside of your card is complete, glue the card front onto the outside of the card base.
Inside: Use your Spider and Spiderweb die to create the spiderweb and cut two spiders. Add spiderweb to the inside of your card base following package directions. Secure the web portion that attaches to the top of your card with a brad. Glue down your two spiders to the web. Stamp sentiment and pumpkin as shown. 
kraft cardstock (Bazzill) black cardstock (American Crafts), cream cardstock, Mischievous papers (My Mind’s Eye), black pen, Wild Honey Distress Ink (Ranger), ribbon, brad.
Thanks so much, Gretchen!
