Elmhurst Hollow Full Moon Card

And, here is the 2nd project from the Elmhurst Hollow Collection from It's called a Full Moon Card. I love the style and shape of this card along with the 3-D aspect of the card. The tree was sponged, embossed, then added to the left side of this card. Tree is from another SVG cut file (Haunted Hemlock Cards) also from

Here's the layered flower with a glitter brad covering the pop-up mechanism. The flower is sponged using SU Old Olive and Craft White. A small patch of grass was added to the inside bottom of the card.

Bats have 2 layers: The dark grey and the light grey parts are sponged using black ink, popped with dimensionals and lastly, add red adhesive rhinestones for their eyes. I'm not sure where the printed words DSP originated from.......sponge the edges with SU More Mustard ink, spritz with Pearl Smooth for a shimmery the light of the shiny moon..right?

Shimmery effect:

Here's the inside of the card: Vanilla Card Stock with SU more Mustard sponged edges using that Inkssentials blending tool (you know the one: a wooden handle with removable foam pads). Message left blank for now.

Side view: The front gate is about 5/8" away from the main card. There is a small extension behind the gate to allow fold up/down.

This card can be folded flat to place in an envelope:


  • Stamps: None

  • CS: Black, Kraft, SU Old Olive, SU Grey, SU Light Grey

  • Ink: Craft White, SU Old Olive, SU More Mustard, Black, SU Close to Cocoa
