Halloween Flip Flop Card

Good morning,

We're still on Halloween here! This next card was made with the Wicked Cool stamp set and Wicked Fun DSP. It also features the Bat punch. The base card is Old Olive, one of my go-to colors most of the time, but especially at Halloween.

I stamped the web in Old Olive ink all over the inside of the card.

Here is whta the fold looks like. It's a regular sized card, cut the long way, then I cut off about 2 -2 1/2 inches on the front. I cut a smaller version and reversed the fold. When you close it, close the olive first and the Rich Razzleberry flap over it.

The front of the Olive flap is where you put the designer paper.

Then I started with the matted stamp image. The hat and word Spooky were stamped on Shimmery White paper which doesn't mean much in photos but shows up beautifully IRL.

I double matted the image in Cajun Craze, and black to highlight all the colors in the DSP. I punched out a bat and stuck it on there and stapled three kinds of ribbon to it. You can barely see it but I pierced the corners of the black mat. Then mounted it on the front of the razzleberry card.

The inside of the card has the witches feet stamped and another punched bat.
Honestly, the card is cute but the stamped images aren't coordinating the way I like. I'll be playing with this and finding a more striking image for the front and inside. I love the stamp set, it's just not making it for this card. I think perhaps some line art. hmmm.

Have a great day.
Much love and joy,
