Spellbound by Making Memories Halloween

Love this new line by Making Memories!!! Also love how they've incorporated argyle into the bat stamp as well as this paper! Soooo cool, I think! I decided if we can do Christmas in July, it's okay to do Halloween in August!!! ;-) I thought this Spring pop-up card was perfect for this theme too & it's soooooo easy/quick to make. The tutorial is here.
I altered the size for this card to 5" x 10" because I wanted Mr. Bones excatly in the middle. Also, just in case you're using this same cardstock (OR any one-way design), be sure to put your cardstock on your cutter with your pattern upright as you look down at it. Then cut your 5" piece & trim 2" off that piece to get your 5" x 10" piece. I cut my 5" piece off the left side of my full 12 x 12 sheet first & then cut 2" off the top of that piece in order to get the skull/crossbones @ top center once it's folded. If this doesn't make sense to you, you're welcome to email me @ mer@orbitelcom.com & I'll try to explain it so it will!
I like that these papers & stamps will work well for males and older children/men. I know someone with lots of male grandchildren who will be very happy about that!!! Great job, Making Memories!!!
