Danger!

I have been having fun making Halloween items this month. Here is another card I made.

Front

Inside

(not sure why the difference in coloring, I took the photos in the same location. It is made with Black Magic cardstock with green core.)


The base of the card is made using the gate fold technique. I started with a piece of 12x6 cardstock. I scored at 2, 4, 8, & 10 inches. At the 4 and 8 inch score, fold towards the center of card. Then at the 2 and 10 inch score, fold away from the center. Now embellish as you please.

I of course I had to figure out how to emboss the top tabs with the Cuttlebug. It was very easy. I folded the card up, then placed one tab between the folder and ran it through....worked great! then repeated for the other side.

I cut a scalloped square using the Create A Critter cardridge and again ran it through the Cuttlebug (LOVE my Cuttlebug!) The skull and the word danger were cut using the Wall Decor and More cartridge. The poison bottle and the mat were cut using Ashlyn's Alphabets cartridge. I inked every thing up then pieced it all together.
This card is being entered in the following challenges.

Lovely skull.
I like your card very much - esp. the hidden jar of poison that looks like an old sugar jar.
I had the same problem with taking pictures of a card like you: I am not a good photographer and my close-ups sometimes had a different colour than the other pictures. I haven't solve this problem, yet but started to scan the cards instead of taking pictures.
