This month the theme for our weSTAMP swap is “Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving”, card or 3-D. How about BOTH! Here’s a 3-D card I came up with. Even though the witch legs and broom stick out, it can all be folded to one side and it fits in a medium sized envelope!
I saw Jennifer Eby’s “Christmas Door” on Stampin’ Connection (visable only by Stampin’ Up demonstrators on the Stampin’ Up website). I decided to make my door with a Halloween twist.
Inside of card: Recipe:
Stamp Set: Wicked Cool, Woodgrain
Paper: Soft Suede, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Soft Suede, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Punches (Decorative Label, Curly Label, 1 3/4″ Circle, 1/2″ Circle), Brad, Waffle Paper (for broom), Dimensionals (front panels on door are POPPED), Distressing Tool, Daubers
Most of this you can just kind of figure out by viewing the card. Here’s a few more helpful hints:
Witch Hat: Scrunched and distressed to simulate the “CRASH”, make 3 slits in the witch hat so you can put the broom and legs in this piece BEFORE taping it to the door
Door panels: Dimensionals behind them to make them POP. I used daubers and inked the edges of the door panels to make them stand out more.
Broom: Stick is 2 3/4″ x 1/8″ wide. Broom end is waffle paper wrapped around the end a couple times, then cut to make the fringes. I just used Tombo glue to attach it to the broom end. Scrunch the end that is closest to the broom.
Witch Legs: Legs are 2″ x 3/8″ and cut out of black cardstock. I cut tiny strips of orange paper and glued them to the legs to make her stockings. Stick the legs into the witch hat slits that you already cut and tape to the back side of witch hat. Bend the legs so they stick out perpendicular to the door.
Witch Feet: If you have Google Reader, you can upload the feet (and 1/2 circle window on door) HERE. I cut out 2 feet per leg so it looks good on both sides. The witch leg is sandwiched inbetween the 2 feet. To make the buckle, cut 4 squares 1/4″ x 1/4″ out of Elegant Eggplant. Then 2 smaller black squares to go inside the buckle. I used 2 buckles per shoe, again, so it looks good on both sides.
Door Knob: Punch 1/2″ circle out of Chocolate Chip paper, then pierce a brad through the circle. Attach to door front with a glue dot.
