Halloween Fun Stuff

I do so want fall to get here!
The warm weather is getting old and I am in the mood for cooler temps, changing colors and making costumes!
So, I have decided to help things along the way by thinking forward.
Here is my project for today. It is called a shelf card.

Now, I am not going to lie to you, maybe the theory of making this card is easy, but...


...if I had someone to call and cry to about this card, I would have!

I borrowed the name BOO CREW from Authentique Paper. I as using paper from their GLOWING line and on one of the HEADLINES for GLOWING , you will see this cute little phrase.

Once again, I used a lot of dies on this project. To start, on each level I used a SCALLOPED OVAL as my decorating base.
For my spiders on the first level, I worked my magic on some DARLING DAISIES turning the daisies into this likable spiders.

Also on the first level of the card I made flowers out of the smallest SCALLOPED OVAL.
The oval made this funky sort of shaped flower, perfect for this card.
The leaves underneath are from the set called JUDY'S BLOOMS.


On the 3rd and top layer I used a cute little stamp I had to represent the BOO CREW.

Here is a side view of this intricate card.

Another side view.

You can see how each layer is staggered.

Believe it or not, it DOES fold flat!

Have I made you long for some fall time activities or card making? I hope so.
I had fun making this, even though it was very trying!
I adore the way it turned out and it was huge therapy for me to make my own spiders...
...NO ONE is more scared of those things than me!
Like I always say, Paper-crafting is THERAPY!!
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today's post.
