Hi all! Today I'm sharing a card I made for September's Karen Burniston Pop it Ups Designer Challenge. This month's theme is Spooky September, so I decided to create a fun Halloween pop-up!
The paper I used is all from Echo Park's Chillingsworth collection. On the front of my card, I layered various papers, cutting the bottom piece with one of Karen's Agatha Edges dies. The center panel was stamped with a witch image from My Mind's Eye and cut using one of the label dies included in the Lorna Label Pop-Up collection.
Oooh, here's my spooky house! I love how it turned out. I thought quite a bit about how to make Karen's adorable Holiday House into a towering haunted house and I think I came up with a pretty easy way to get that look.
To make the center house panel, I folded my cardstock in half, placed the bottom of the house die just over the edge (so it won't cut through) and die cut my piece. After unfolding the house, I cut off the other pointed end and trimmed the house to fit. I did the same thing for the wings on either side of the house, but used the smaller portico die.
To give the house dimension, I added pop dots to the two skinny parts of the house, then adhered them to the pop-up. Speaking of which, I used the Lorna Label die which ends up being totally covered by my house, but leaves a little ledge in the front to hold up my fence. The fence was cut using Karen's House Pivot Card die. I trimmed the fence pieces out then covered them with ECD's black Silk Microfine Glitter.
I hope you're inspired to start your fall crafting! If you don't celebrate Halloween, you could easily adjust the colors and images to make a cute autumn house or get a head start on Christmas and make a pretty snow-covered cottage.
