Fun Fold Halloween Card

Today's card uses a couple sweet digis from The Paper Shelter. The Halloween Tea digi is a freebie here: Halloween Tea - Digital Stamp Halloween Tea - Digital Stamp (, and I won a choice of 3 digis from The Paper Shelter in a card challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday, and the little boy dressed as a werewolf was one I chose. Isn't he darling? 

In addition to the digi stamps (I used the precolored versions, but the stamp sets come with outlines you can color in yourself, also as well as backgrounds you can use), I used 2 acrylic stamps and one rubber stamp for the sentiments. My MISTI really comes in handy for stamping as I can repeat the stamp in exactly the same spot if it doesn't come out as clearly as I'd like the first time around. 

The idea for this fun fold card started with Connie Stewart's Z Fold Easel card found here: Z Fold Easel Card Tutorial: The Greeting Card To DIY This Season ( I created a Silhouette Studio cut file from Connie's instructions for the top-latch card and cut the file out in 3 patterns of card stock.  Look for another post soon with that card in it. Meanwhile, I used some extra pieces I'd cut for that card to create this modified version of the card.
