The card was designed using the April Heart2Heart Sketch Challenge, and making a tri-fold card from Tutorial on You Tube "How to make a Tri-Fold Shutter Card Base" by The Mad Stamper.  As I was looking through my papers I decided on "Scaredy Cat" and what's more appropriate than a Halloween theme...a little early; but you know how time flies. The tutorial was excellent instructions for the simple cut of this card, and then all else is left to your imagination and creativity on decorating with embellishments.  

The tri-fold made it possible to create the front of the card according to the sketch.  Selected one of the colors "thistle" from the design paper to use as my first panel on each section.    

Front of Card:  Chose my design paper using a paper similar to the design in the sketch challenge.  Then my concentration went to the focal point which took me to Cricut Design Space where I found a frame similar to the sketch which included a cobweb (Halloween cards need cut for the front of the card, and extra set for the inside. One of the images in "Little Monsters" Stamp Set had a spider on her a great picture for this frame and so cute, stamped, colored, cut to frame and placed behind the frames with 3D Foam Tape. 

One of the design papers had rows of fencing, cut three strips of the thinner fencing, and adhered with 3D Foam tape.  Sentiment was easy selection "Spooky Cute" and stamped on vellum so I didn't lose the design of the background, heat embossed with a purple embossment powder, and adhered to card.  Completion of sketch was the three embellishments (bows) at the upper left-hand corner.   


Inside of Card:  Well I was done with the sketch challenge, now for all the design papers and embellishments on the inside of the card.  Placement of design papers on other panels, Cricut Design Space die-cuts and already made die-cuts, puffies, some Wink of Stella, another stamped little monster which was colored and adhered with 3D Thin foam tape inside frame.  Done...below are close-ups of the detail of the inside of the card.

There is so much detail in this card as well - love that the folded version fits the sketch at H2H but when opened, it is a completely different card - unique idea. Hallowe'en in April... to each her own. Great shutter card overall - thanks for the inspiration and for joining us at H2H again this week :)
