Spooky Fun Double Z Card

I've been seeing lots of double z fold cards on Pinterest recently and there was one in particular using the Santa's Sleigh stamp set and thinlits that blew me away. I don't have the Santa's Sleigh set, but after seeing that card I was inspired to use my Spooky Fun stamps and Halloween Scenes Edgelits to create a Halloween double z card.

I started off by sponging a spooky sunset skyline onto Whisper White cardstock using Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, and Pumpkin Pie inks. I knew I wanted a full moon as a focal point, so before I began sponging I punched out a 1-1/4 circle from a post it note to use as a mask. After I was done with my background, I removed the circle and replaced it with the square post it note with the circle punched out, carefully lining the circles up. Then I sponged the inside of the circle with Crushed Curry.

It folds up nicely to fit inside a standard sized envelope which is nice.

Here's another look at the card opened up. The trio of ghosts are embossed in White Embossing Power.

All the supplies I used to create this card can be found in the Holiday Catalog, including:

  • Spooky Fun stamp set (142236)*
  • Halloween Scenes Edgelits (141842)* 
  • Halloween Night Baker's Twine (142027)
  • Halloween Night Enamel Dots (142025)

*Both the stamp set and edgelits can be purchased as a bundle (144337) to save 10%.

WOW! I bought the Spooky Fun stamp set with Framelits but haven't made a single Halloween card for lack of a good idea. Now, after seeing your amazing card, I'm going to get busy. What a fun project! Thank you for sharing the directions. The whole scene is full of life and fun, and if my card turns out just half as awesomely as yours did, I'll be very, very happy. :)

This card is amazing Lynn. I just love how you have used the spooky dies. They are still on the clearance rack so maybe I "Need" to get them ;-) Thank you for the shout out too. Glad I could inspire you, Chlo xx
