Halloween Thinlits Card

Hi Stampers!

Happy Halloween!!!!

Today I have one more Halloween card to share with you.  It's another interactive card that I made with the new Thinlits dies.  Today I'm featuring the circle thinlit die.

Here you can the movable part of the card. Isn't that fun?  You can decorate both sides of the movable circle label.  I also did a little trick to add an extra panel on the card.  This allows you to have a larger card interior space to write on.

Here's a closer look at the way I decorated the other side of the circle panel.  The 2-1/2" circle punch is the perfect size to make a mat on this panel of the card.

Here's a peek at the card when it is fully open.  See how the extra panel gives you more room on the interior to write a message?

Thinlits Halloween Card

Hi Stampers!

It's Halloween Week and I have some fun Halloween cards to share with you!  Today's card features the new Thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! These dies allow you to create fun, interactive, moveable cards.  The die does all the work for you.  All you need to do is crease the score marks and decorate!  Super easy.

I had to pinch the card closed so you can see the whole front.  The black strip is a scrap of the Witch's Brew DSP.  I used the White Chalk Marker to add some faux stitching to the piece to make it a little more interesting.

For the label panel, I used the Tags 4 You stamp set featured in the Holiday Catalog.  It coordinates perfectly with the new Bracket label punch.  Then I used the new silver glitter and some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to add sparkle!
