Here is the Halloween card I made this year. I used A Frightful Affair, George and Basic Shapes, Happy Hauntings, Mini Monsters, and Straight From the Nest for the cuts. For the embossing I used the Swiss Dots, Cane Back Chair, Retro Kitchen Set Dots, and Houndstooth CuttleBug folders. I inked EVERYTHING, so this card took a while to make, but was lots of fun. Hope you like it! GG

Thank you all for your kind comments. They are so encouraging and greatly appreciated. I made 30 of them for family members and friends. It did take some time, but I loved making them. Apart from Christmas and St. Patrick's Day, Halloween is a fave holiday, and we tend to go all out in the costume and decorating departments. I did go a tad overboard with the card this year, but the idea had a life of it's own, once I got started...lol! You have made my day! GG

The tree is from A Frightful Affair. GG

JoyceG...yeah, probably should not have it in the card section, but that is what it was meant to be. It does not fold in half, and ended up being around 10"x10". Most of these I hand delivered, but those I had to mail I made my own envelopes for from bubble wrap and brown paper. I did find envelopes it fit in at OfficeMax, but was able to make them for much less. The cost or what it was called was not the point on something like this anyway, I meant it as a gift for each recipient. I should probably have posted it somewhere else, but this is where I am use to posting, and as I meant it to be a card when I started out, this is where I posted it, hope that is OK. Sorry if I confused anyone or misrepresented my project. It is, admittedly, rather large to be listed as a card, but that is what I consider it,despite the fact it does not fold in half. It does lay flat, like a stair step card, when folded down at the score marks, to fit in an envelope, but is meant to stand up, as pictured, once received. Hope that answers your questions. Blessings, GG.

Dori....it does not fold in half, but folds flat on the three "steps". When folded on those steps and pushed flat, the "card" measures 12" long x 10" high. To keep it flat in the envelope, I used paper clips to hold it. When the paper clips are taken off, the "card" automatically expands to what you see in the picture. I didn't realize I would spark such controversy by calling this a card. I guess it should have been referred to as a decoration? But again, I meant it as a hand delivered card. I like to make super dimensional cards for my family and often for my friends as well. I usually do not post them, because of how detailed they are, and because they cost a lot to mail, and are meant to be hand delivered, but I decided to this time to show what other types of "cards" I make. I hope that answers your questions. Blessings, GG.

Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I am unable to use the "Thanks" button since the changes that have been made to the MB. I am working from an IPad, and cannot see the last 1/4 of the right side of the page, so cannot push the "Thanks" button. I have to guess at what people are writing in their posts! I contacted PC and reported what was going on, so hopefully it will be fixed soon. This happens each time they make changes to the MB! Again, Iwanted to apologize to everyone for listing this project as a card. That is what it is to me, but I can see now how it might not be to others. Hallmark sells cards that do not fold in half either. They have easel cards with a sweet picture on the front and a little piece on the back that gets punched out and used as the stand for the picture, and just one sided cards with a place for a picture on the front, and other types as well. HTH, GG.

Maybe this will help dimension wise. I took a 12 x 12 piece of paper and cut it to 12x10 (12" wide by 10" high). I then scored it at 1", 2", 4 1/2", 6", and 8". I folded the paper at the scores to make the steps. I then realized that my images would be too heavy to stand up on just one piece of paper, so I used my ATG to stick two more pieces of paper together, scored them at the same places, then used my ATG to attach them to the original piece of paper, making each "card" out of 3 pieces of paper stuck together and scored at the above points. I then began adding all the images I had cut and inked and assembled to my steps. The tree and the house also have extra layers, so they could support the weight of the ghosts, moon, and witch, and stand up on the step. The Bride of Frankenstein also needed extra layers to support her head, because her neck is very thin. Hope that helps. GG

What a great card. You don't need to feel that you posted it in the "wrong" category, it is absolutely beautiful and I wish I had your talent. Keep posting your work. You deserve an award for this.

p.s. if you hadn't posted it here I personally would never have seen it!
