31 DOH - Day 24

 Thanks again to Smeared Ink and the Smeared and Smudged Forum, for hosting this wonderful month long event.

I love making cards.  Cards especially that have a fun twist or are unusual.  I have a Fold Out Card for you today.  I know that there are probably other names, but this is the name I know it as.  Originally I saw this in card stock form.  Thought I would do this in the two sided Designer Paper.  I hate putting tape on a side that I just love!  This card is the best of both.  Plus you get to make a belly band.  You can do a hauntingly spooky belly dance while sliding off the know you want to!

Jingle, Jangle, the Deets
Designer Paper is from the Witches' Brew paper pack from Stampin' Up!.
Very Vanilla card stock (cs) for inside cut with a Deco Labels Framelits.
On the upper right side of cs, I used Spider Web Embossing Folder, SU! (retired).
Skeleton is from SU! set called Toil & Trouble.

Belly Band
Basic Black cs.
Black Chevron Ribbon, SU!

Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla cs cut with Deco Labels Framelits.
Pumpkin Pie was pierced around all sides with paper piercing tool.
Very Vanilla cs was stamped with Black Staze On with skeleton.
Saying is for Inkadinkado, set called Trick or Treat, stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.
CS was embossed with Spider Web folder.
Went around all sides with Basic Black marker.
Large Pearls were colored with black Sharpie, then place on top and bottom.
All materials used are Stampin' Up! and are current unless otherwise noted.
