You know that I love fun fold cards with patterned paper. And I have another great fancy fold card idea for you today! It works with all sorts of patterned papers and images and I've made sample cards for all occasions. We made this card for this week's Mystery Stamping event. So, if you'd like to know how it's made, pop over to my Facebook Group. You'll find the replay over there with the step by step instructions. On y go! Let's get stamping.

I love this quick and easy card idea because it lets you show off both sides of any patterned paper. Plus, it's so simple to make. I've used some NEW stamps and papers from the August-December Mini Catalog and the Fall 2021 Sale-A-Bration brochure to make these fun card samples! So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
We don't get tons of Trick-or-Treaters at our house, so I wanted to make something a little special for the ghosties and ghoulies who knock on our door. However, not very many is still a fair number, so I needed the treats to be quick and easy. I came up with these little packages that fit two mini packages of starbursts. I was able to finish off 30 or so in just a couple hours.
Quick and easy and ready for the kiddos to come knocking!
I cut the books on the left of the card from another sheet of the paper that looks like library shelves full of spooky, creepy books. I scored a line between the books and then folded them and rolled the books slightly. Although it's hard to see in the photo, I wanted the them to look like individual books with raised spines. To help them keep their shape, I cut apart mini dimensionals and placed them under the books, then I put a thin line of liquid adhesive where the edges of the books are. This raises the inside of the spine while holding the edges down to the paper and gives each book a curved spine.
Since the "Wicked" die cut overlapped the books, I had to put dimensionals on it as well. This required quite a bit of finesse as the type is fairly thin and I had to cut the already small mini dimensionals into smaller pieces.
I also popped the little spider on a dimensional and added a line in black to make it look like the spider was hanging off the words.
