Spooky Peeking Ghost

Love the new Decorative Label Punch! It was used for the front of this card. For the larger black matted Decorative label see Angela McKay's 8/18/10 video tutorial (http://www.northshorestamper.com/) on the "How To". Instead of ribbon, a strip of Cherry Cobbler was used under the label.

Here's a close-up of the label.............the "Spooky" stamps so great! Love the font style.

Open the card to reveal.............the ghost peeking out from the tombstone..........the inside edges are inked with Craft White ink and bats are also stamped on each corner with the Craft White ink.......

Overview of the pop-out mechanism:

This is what is needed to make this card:
(1) 8-1/2" x 11" Black CS, score on the 8-1/2" side @ 4-1/4"
(1) 4" x 5-1/4" Basic Grey CS
(1) 4" x 2-5/8" DSP, retired Ghostly Greetings DSP or any DSP
(1) 5/8" x 4" Cherry Cobbler CS
2) Punched X-tra Large Decorative Label in Black CS
(1) 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" Basic Grey CS - this will be the tombstone
(1) 4" x 1-1/4" Black CS strip for the Pop-out mechanism
(1) scrap Whisper White for the Decorative Label (punch after stamping) and "Halloween" label on the tombstone
(1) Punched Whisper White Wide oval, cut off a angle at the bottom as shown
(2) Googlie eyes
First, use Basic Grey ink on the embossing folder, position the Basic Grey 4" x 5-1/4" CS and emboss. Assemble the card front.Then stamp Spooky using the Cherry Cobbler and punch out using the Decorative Label punch:

Here's how I made the back of the Decorative label outline (be sure to see Angela's video, too). Pop with dimensionals and position on top of the Cherry Cobbler strip. Card front is now complete.
Template for the pop-out mechanism:
Use the 1-1/4" x 4" strip and score as shown
Fold all score lines. Add sticky tape to each 1/2" area. Clip off the corner (see arrow) on the right side - the one close to the "v" fold.

Position of the mechanism on the inside card:
Remove the stick tape. They SHOULD BE folded back attached to the inside card. The left side of the "v" SHOULD BE lined up with the inside fold line of the card.

Position Ghost as shown. Apply sticky tape along the left edge and bottom of the pop -out mechanism. Ink Wood Texturz plate with Basic Grey ink and place tombstone on top for the texture. Stamp "Halloween" on Whisper White CS, cut out, pop with dimensionals. Remove back of sticky tape and place tombstone 1/16" away from the folded edge. Card is now completed.
