pop_up_halloween_house_flatI was inspired by my awesome demo friend Heather to create my own pop-up card. She was manning the table right next to me at the Holiday card stamp-a-stack earlier this month, and her project was a darling pop-up card featuring a couple of Santa stamp sets in the Holiday Mini. Since I can't get enough of the Holiday Home stamp set for Halloween, and I found a perfect color challenge on the web, it was easy to design this cute card.

popped_up_halloween_houseThe first picture shows how nicely the card folds flat for mailing. There should be no complaints from the Postal Service about any lumpiness on these cards. devil The second picture shows the card popped up so that you can see the greeting inside. You may not recognize the "Boo!" stamp – it is one of the stamps that was included in the September Paper Pumpkin kit. I had fun pulling together some different elements to decorate this card. I used the stars mask with Elegant Eggplant ink to create the background on the purple paper, and I pulled out some retired washi tape to add some very Halloween-esque skulls and crossbones below the pop-up panel. The Tangelo Twist ribbon and our handy-dandy stapler created the perfect pull tab at the top. Yep, I do like how this card turned out. wink

I found the inspiration for my color combination out on the web. I discovered this demonstrators site when I was looking around on the web, and this was a perfect combo for my needs. She has other challenges on her site using the same splotch images, but changing up the colors. What an awesome way to create a color challenge!

Anyhow, I hope that you have enjoyed the series of Halloween cards that I have been sharing lately. Admittedly, most of them are using the Holiday Home stamp set, but it has such cute images that I can't stop myself. Have fun this evening with your family and friends, whether you are going to a party, taking your kids around trick-or-treating or hanging around the house to hand out treats to the cute little beggars like I am. Happy Halloween!
