Halloween Haunted House

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly Santi our challenge hostess for the month, finishes the month with one last challenge.

Today is Halloween! Although many celebrate - let's keep it simple and create a card with anything Halloween OR Harvest ... costumes, candies, spooky things or just use orange and black!

As you can see I have created another House Easel Card using Honey Bee Stamps House Builder Card Base and their Haunted House Add On die set. When I ordered the house die set, I figured I should include the Haunted House die set in my order so of course wanted to use it before it was too late for this year.

I had thought about created a pop up card with the haunted house, but in the end opted for another easel card as it was the easier option and looked more interesting.

To help the house stand as an easel, I die cut the  "Happy Halloween" sentiment from Karen Burniston's Halloween Charms die set which I die cut three times an layered for extra height. I also die cut an additional one in black so I could have a black bat.

On the corners of the front of the card base I added some spiders webs which is from an older MFT Stamps die set.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelop.

And finally a look at the back of the card .... I decided to add "Boo!" and some haunted hands to the back for some extra spooky fun! These are from Karen Burniston's Halloween Elements die set.
