Ghosty Flip It's

Hello my crafty friends

Happy Halloween!

It's Fun Fold Friday here on my blog. Even though I didn't need another Halloween card this year, I couldn't let Halloween go by without posting a Halloween card. and since it's been too long since I've made a Flip It card, that is what I went with today. This is also for Your Next Stamp's Fun Friday Challenge #125 which is 'TRICK or TREAT'. You can find all the details for the challenge HERE.

I have had this patterned paper for several years, it has a cream background and the pattern is embossed and shiny. Very pretty. You don't have to add too much to a card with there is so much texture in the patterned paper, so I stamped the ghost and 'boo' on vellum and coloured the pumpkin with Copic markers from the back side.

The black sparkle ribbon was also in my stash ...

Here is what the card looks like when it is 'flipped' open.

I embossed the greeting with clear embossing powder so it is raised and shiny like the patterned paper.

I added some YNS Gumdrops (love those things) and my card was done.

Every year we seem to get more and more children come Trick or Treating, which is fun. I love seeing the little ones all dressed up in their costumes. We live out in the country and there are no streetlights in our neighbourhood as part of a Dark Sky initiative to reduce light pollution. Oh, and there are cougars ... not a good idea to send a little one out dressed up as a teddy bear, ha ha.  So the parents drive the kids to the end of the driveways and walk the kids up to the houses. 

Hope everyone that enjoys Halloween has a safe one.
