Halloween Card with a Surprise Ending

So here is the second card we made at this month's advanced card class.  It starts out as this simple, understated card - very much my style. The bat is made with the SU butterfly punch - you punch it once, then thread it back into the punch and punch off the bottom of the wings - cute, huh!

But then ..... a surprise - here are all the elements of the card ready to go.
The key is the little strips of gray - scored into fours evenly and then folded and taped into the card.  Where the ends meet in the bottom back - it has to line up with the inside fold of the card.
When you do that - add the elements - open the card - and you'll get this!
It's a fun pop-up card!!  Here it is from the side so you can see all the details and fun of this card.
And I feel the fun is all in the details - the sponged background - those little bats - the ghost rising and that cute little witches hat - just tossed so it landed on the tombstone.
This was really a FUN card to make - hope you liked it.  Can't wait till my next advanced class to see what we'll try :)  ~Maureen
