Trick or Treat

** 10/25/16 Top 3 Winner at Cardz 4 Guyz! **

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day - hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! Hope you are enjoying some cooler weather wherever you are. We've had a couple weeks of gorgeous weather and I'm not complaining at all! It's time for another fun challenge over at Let's Craft and Create, and I'm stoked to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #118 - Halloween or Fall/Autumn! You know I'm a sucker for fancy folds and I've created my first-ever standing box card which I thoroughly enjoyed creating.

The cardstock, paper, stamps and dies are all from Stampin' Up! and I'm in love with how this turned out! I created my own background for the standing portion of this card and used Crystal Drops - one of my new favorite things in my crafty stash - and a little clear Wink of Stella on the open stars.

Here's a shot of the bottom box portion of the card. Did I mention how much I love this?! LOL!

And here's one more shot from a different angle. So, so much fun! I definitely see more of these in my future, lol! :)

And the best part is... it folds flat for mailing! Ta-da! :)

Proud to enter this fun fold into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black cardstock, Stampin' Up! Pretty Petals DSP
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Howl-o-ween Treats and Balloon Celebrations stamp sets
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Tangelo Twist ink, Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Dies/Punches: Stampin' Up! Boo To You Framelits
  • Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Ripened Pumpkin Crystal Drops

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and have found some inspiration to play in our Halloween or Fall/Autumn challenge this time! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
