Them Bones, Halloween Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun layout to share with you. And a fun Halloween card.
Please read on to see how I made this card.

The base of my card is a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  Yes, this is actually the base. 

On that base I took two strips of Designer Series Paper (DSP) that measured 4" x 1".  And here you thought it was a solid piece of DSP on that layer.  Isn't that fun?  The DSP is from the "Them Bones" 12" x 12" package.

The part of the card that open is the Basic Gray piece in the center. It measures 4" x 8-1/2".  I scored it in half at 4-1/4".  I stamped the front with leg bones from the "Bag of Bones" set using black Memento ink. This piece was then taped to the front of the card. I tried to make sure it was centered from left to right. It's close enough!

I took the same design of DSP and cut a piece for the front. It measures 2-3/4" x 2-3/4".  And the Basic Black piece was cut at 3" x 3". I taped the DSP to the Basic Black piece and then I taped that piece to the Basic Gray piece.

I die cut the skeleton and dog from a sheet of the DSP from the same "Them Bones" 12" x 12" package. I set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

The words are from the same set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them using the second smallest stitched circle from the "Stylish Shapes" die set. I also die cut a Basic Black layer using the 1-3/8" circle die from the "Layering Circles" set. I taped the circles together and then they were set in place on the front of the car using Dimenisonals.

I added a 3-3/4" x 4" piece of Basic White card stock to the inside of the card and the card was finished.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time is to stop in and see today's Halloween card,
