Trick Or Treat

Since I made that fun Halloween Z Fold card last week I just had to make another! I used a very old stamp set that I like and is no longer available to my knowledge called Hallows Eve.  This is a double set and was a hostess gift (could only get if one had a party with sales of $600 or more back when FSJ was a direct marketing company). I only make Halloween cards for family and swaps as we don't celebrate the holiday.  Anyway, I think this card took me about 3 1/2 hours to make!

Here is my card closed. Aren't the little Trick or Treaters just TOO cute!  The fence is from the Winter Build-A-Scene die set. I adhered the sections of fence to a 1/4" wide strip of Black Licorice card stock as the sections are about 2" long.

And the open card.  There's more that show up when the card is opened!  Trees, a moon, a spider and web, and more kids! I cut out the windows in the 2 houses, stamped them again on yellow and adhered to the back so the windows look lit. I used my Color Burst Pencils to add some more color to the little princess as just being all pink didn't look right.

I also used a stamp set called Hey Boo.  It's new and available.  And while I was making this post I realized I missed adding the black cat.  He is now on the far right on the fence. I added some Sparkle Silk to the die cut spider web as they seem to glisten in the moonlight.

I sponged some ink to the moon edges after stamping the sentiment then ran it through my Yummy Bubble embossing folder.

I used quite an assortment of products for this card.  The background paper is from a pad from a box store that a friend and I purchased together and split.

Now to get this card in the mail for a special swap. I can't wait to hear from her when she gets it! Have you ever made a Z Fold card?
