C4C 354 Halloween Tent Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday  so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our September 2016 hostess is Raquel Mason and our Guest Designer is Fran Sabad.

When I saw Raquel's sketch, I immediately thought of doing a Tent Card. Last year fellow Designer  ChallengeTeammate Frances Byrne came up with a way to create a Tent Card using an Accordion die so I went with the Accordion Oval for my card instead of the Circle Accordion. Ha, I usually go my own way with a sketch.

I adore that little expanding ghost from the new Halloween Charms. This card folds completely flat for mailing, then stands open with the little ghost swinging in the centre.

I'm also loving Karen Burniston's new Halloween Scene die set - The spooky branch is SO fun and the graveyard scene is proving to be quite versatile.

I like to add a panel to the back of my Tent Cards, as a place for a greeting and signature. Here I used one of the new Halloween Clear Stamps in orange and went over the web and spider with a fine point black marker.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C354
