Midnight Fright Surprise

Here's another Marvelous Magical Marquee Card. See my previous post on September 10 for another Halloween version. See Jan Tink's blog (www.stampspaperscissors.typepad.com) for her fabulous tutorial video on August 29. This card ended up having some punched art on it - quite by accident.

Here's the card slightly opened, revealing the message and the full moon "opening up"

Here's the card fully opened, revealing messages underneath the full moon.

Close-up of the inside message from Batty for You stamp set: the funny skull

Inside card is a rub on from the Spooky Treats Rub On.

Here are the components to make this card: the basic measurements are on Jan's site. I did increase the inside panel to be 3" x 5-1/4" and the moving part in More Mustard CS to be 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". The punched hole size is 1-1/2".

To make the "clouds" (which, by the way was so much fun to do): punch a dew circles and use a sponge to randomly apply Craft White Ink.

To make the "grass": Yup, I used the snowflake punch and cut off the pieces that are needed. Lightly sponge using Old Olive ink, too - we like depth and texture here we can get it.

For the Full Moon, make a "mask" for sponging (see the chocolate chip color scrap that was made in the photo). Close the card, sponge the punched hole using More Mustard Ink - also dab a little Only Orange Ink.

Here are the results of the Full Moon - looks OK?

To make the fence: Punch (6) posts using the Word Window Punch, cut off the bottom, trim tops as shown. Cit 2 lengths 4-1/4" long strips Tip: there's no need to make them so perfectly straight.. Apply Basic Grey Ink using a sponge to all post pieces.

This is the completed fence, grass, and ground (torn strips of Chocolate chip). The bird: it's the rub on from Spooky Treats.
