LDRS Creative | Easy Fun Fold Halloween Card

It's amazing what adding an extra fold to your card can do! I have a last minute Halloween card made with LDRS Creative goodies to share with you!

I started by stamping images from the Halloween Party 4x6 Stamps onto a strip of 1 3/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them in with alcohol markers.

Next I did my die-cutting. I cut the sentiment with the Large Word Halloween Dies as well as a small strip of black cardstock with the 1/8" A2 Background Strips Die

Now it's time to make the fun fold card. It's SUPER easy! I started with a piece of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock (half of an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock) and scored it at 2 3/4" and 4 1/4". Fold it in half at 4 1/4" and you'll have a regular side fold card and then fold on the second score line and you'll have a sort of "Z" shaped card. I added a bit of ink blending with In Your Face Orange Hybrid Ink onto the right side of the card to be a halo behind my die-cut sentiment and started putting the card together. 

I adhered the stamped and colored strip of cardstock onto the left side of the card and trimmed off the excess. I added the strip of black cardstock right along the edge of the score line to give it a finished edge and popped up my die-cut sentiment. Then I glued the folded portion of my card together so that the card only opens on the 2 3/4" score line. I wanted to add a black mat, so I cut a piece of cardstock slightly larger than my card (4 3/8" x 5 5/8") and adhered the card to the black piece. 

I usually leave the inside of my cards blank, but I thought this fun fold card called for something special! I stamped some critters and a sentiment from the Halloween Party 4x6 Stamps on the inside of my card and that's it! I hope you enjoyed this fun card!
