Lizzie Ann Designs and Elizabeth Craft Halloween card

Hello everyone, today is the start of another challenge over at Simply Create Too

Simply Create Too Challenge Blog

and our theme is Halloween. I decided to try something totally new for me and I created my first ever pop up card using the Elizabeth Craft Flower Pot Pop It Up dies. 

I started by cutting a couple of Papertrey Ink mat stacks and inked one up using distress inks before stamping the cat and greeting from the Lizzie Anne Designs Hallows Eve stamp set. I punched a couple of holes in the top panel, pushed some black ribbon through and then matted it onto the black panel. The Happy comes from the PTI One Liner dies and I matted it onto some black card so it would pop against the background paper.

For the inside, I cut and decorated the pop up box from the Elizabeth Craft pop it up die and inserted it into the card, before cutting some spooky shapes on my Cameo and adding them to the pot. I had a ball with this part, choosing ghosts, bats, pumpkin stacks, trees and a witch on a broomstick! A few stars and some patterned paper, and the inside was done.

To finish the front of the card, I cut the Halloween sentiment on my Silhouette Cameo and  placed the elements on foam tape to give some dimension. The Halloween sentiment did not stand out enough so I cut a separate pumpkin face to stick over the O in the centre, and called it done.

You will find plenty of inspiration from the DT over on SCT blog, and you have two weeks to join is in this fun challenge.
