Sizzix Pop N Cuts XL Card Horizontal A2 w Circle Label Base Tray Kit worked marvelously for my Bewitching Pop Up Halloween Card! With the help of the VERY popular Steampunk Spells Collection from Graphic 45, this card went together like a charm! Now, if I could just find my wand…..
Although I really don’t have a “Book of Spells” full of incantations to help me conger up magical projects for this Halloween season, having all the right ingredients (ie. supplies) really helps get the creative magic flying!
I am a Harry Potter fan, and if we were on our way to Hogwarts this season, I would suggest picking up the following items from Diagon Alley (AKA-Cut@Home) for this card:
4500692 Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells 12 x 12
4500694 Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Patterns & Solids 6×6

NFD007 Nellie’s Choice Sharp Point Rosette Folding Die
657802 Sizzix Pop N Cuts XL Card Horizontal A2 w Circle Label Base Tray Kit
S4-290 Spellbinders Labels Fourteen
Spellbinders Bats Nestabilites (discontinued) or other small bat die.
TIM19541 Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Black Soot
adhesive foam squares
die cutting machine
I started with a piece of 6×6 patter paper for my base, glued it onto a piece of 6×12″ piece of black cardstock for the card, added the pop up piece that was cut with the Sizzix die and decorated from there.
Cut 2 of the Nellie’s Choice Sharp Point Rosette and glue ends together to create the lovely rosette. I used adhesive foam squares to raise the Spell Book on the front, which I hand cut from a piece of the pattern paper, to give dimension.
The Strip of paper on the front has a work look which was created by running my fingernail down both sides, crinkling the paper then sanding to distress. I inked around the card with Black Soot ink pad.
On the inside it is pretty self explanatory by looking at it, but cut two of the flying bat and glue the wire between the two pieces to secure, then secure the other end between the pop up circle label and the Labels Fourteen to give the impression of a flying bat when the card opens! Cardmaking is such a blast!
I know that you are haunted by all the numerous Halloween projects you need to do, so I hope that sharing my spells, I mean tips, will help you get them brewing!
Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!
