Monday Montage Week 53

Hello! Welcome to our Monday Montage Blog Hop! Thanks for joining us today! And now it is officially October so let teh Halloween fun continue!

I created another Halloween card for the hop today using the Circle Card Thinlits. It is so fun and easy to make flip cards with this die!

This is what the inside of the card looks like:

I  I added an extra panel to this card to make it even more fun!  I started with a 6" x 8 1/4" piece of card stock for the base of my card (the finished opened size is 5 1/2" by 8"). I folded the right side of my card in 2 1/4". Then I placed my Circle Card Thinlits die on top of my card base, being careful to keep the fold on the right side of my card just inside of the die so it would not be cut when I ran it through the Big Shot. I opened up my card, and Voila!  I used the die to cut my layering pieces of card stock as well. I just lined them up where I wanted the circle pieces to be cut out, and ran them through the Big Shot-easy! My panels measured (from left to right) 2" total (this includes the borders) x 5 1/4", 2 3/4" x 5 1/4", and 2" x 5 1/4". The Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and the Howl-o-ween Treat Stamp Set were perfect for this card. I added Silver Metallic Thread and rhinestones for the skulls eyes (colored black with a permanent marker) for a little bling! And the Spider Web Doilies are amazing! You can cut them apart for so many fun options!You can find a supply list at the bottom of this post.
