I am so excited that 12 x 12 cardstock is on sale now at Cutcardstock.com. It helps when I want to make a 5″ x 7″ card and also use card accents in the same color.
1 sheet 12 x 12 cardstock (I used Basis Dark Purple)
1 sheet 12 x 12 cardstock Malmero Perle’ Blanc
1 sheet 8 ½ x 11cardstock ( Pop Tones Sour Apple)
1 sheet coordinating patterned paper ( I used a collection by Stampin’ Up called Cast a Spell)
Black ink (I used Memento Black Tuxedo)
Stamps (these are from Inkadinkadoo’s Skull set)
3D Foam Tape
Edge punch, if desired (I used the large spider web by EK success)
Craft Knife and Cutting Mat
Step One: Cut a 10 x 7 piece from your 12 x 12 Basis Dark Purple cardstock. Score at 5″ on the 10″ side. This creates your card base.
Step Two: Cut coordinating patterned paper to 4 ½ x 6 ½. Scissor distress edges by running open scissors along the edge of the paper. It will take off the straight edge and leave a jagged, rough appearance.
Step Three: Cut a 3 ½” x 4″ piece from your remaining Basis Dark Purple cardstock. Cut a
Step Seven: For the motion, you’ll need a 1″ x 7″ scrap of Dark Purple Cardstock and a penny. Fold the 1″ x 7″ cardstock in half, creating a 1″ x 3 ½” strip. Adhere the penny inside the cardstock strip at the fold with glue dots. Use Glue Dots to seal the strip at the top.
Step Eight: Place the third skeleton on top of the card, making sure the 3D foam tape pokes through the hole you created. I used a second layer of 3D Foam Tape to ensure there was enough clearance. Adhere the 1″ x 3 ½” strip you created in step seven to the back of the foam tape, penny side down.
Step Nine: Finish card as desired. I cut a 4 ¾ x 6 ¾ piece of Malmero Perle’ as an inside liner for the card, punching a border with the spider web border punch and then stamping a dancing skeleton on the inside.
