Meowy Halloween Pop-up Card...Happy Little Stampers October 2018 Anything Goes with Dies Challenge

Hello,

Here we are, marching along to nearly the second week of October! Time is flying toooo quickly! Let's not even discuss how my Christmas card-making is coming along...YIKES!  Halloween cards still on the go...which brings me to...



For this month's card, I was inspired (as so many of us are) by Jennifer McGuire and, specifically by her Peek-A-Boo design.  Had to give it a whirl, using some 'leftover' Halloween images.  I won't pretend this was easy (remember: she has an engineering background!), but it was fun, fiddling around with the various pieces to make the interactive sentiment happen! Oh...and the paperclip is not part of the technique; I used it simply to keep the card from popping open as I used some fairly heavy card stock which, I discovered, works better than lighter paper...ask me how I know. As you can guess, a few versions of said design did not make the cut!  Lots of practice before ending up with this one...

This is the outside...

and when you open it, the sentiment 'slides' to this one...(and yes, the kitty changed her hat *grin*)


A design that delights; I see more of these in my future, eventually!

Please visit my teammates to see their wonderful creations and, if you have a moment, leave them some love. I know they'll be thrilled!

Looking forward to seeing your Anything Goes with Dies cards/projects in the gallery!

Oh my goodness, you are brave to have taken this design on and you got a fabulous result. I can imagine how the process might have gone! It is absolutely adorable, so well done, colored fantastically as always. I think of you so often and sorry I don't pop by to say Hi. But it surely is great to see you at Creative with Stamps!!
