31 Days of Halloween - Day 24

Day 24 - only a week to go.

Today's card is the one that I couldn't get to work yesterday. Terri my crafty pal suggested that instead of cutting window flaps that would hopefully line up, I could attach 3 mini cards to the front. Great idea!

The purple textured paper was punched with a corner punch and wrapped with silver and purple embroidery floss. Each mini card flap is secured with a small peice of velcro to hold it shut.

Top flap "Trick" is a kid Dracula embossed in gold and edged with orange.

Middle flap "Or" is a kid Skeleton embossed in silver and edged with brown.

Bottom flap "Treat" is a kid Mummy embossed in bronze and edged with lime green.

With all the flaps open the card still stands up.

My next stop is sleep. Your next stop is
