Pop 'N Cut Halloween Card for a Friend

Halloween is gone, but not forgotten.  If you've read some other posts here, you know I'm a BIG fan of Karen Burniston--the queen of pop up cards.  She has a new line of Sizzix dies out called Pop 'n Cuts and my friend Joanne and I were "hot to trot" to get our hands on the base die so we could try it out.  Then, Karen and Shelly Hickox (Stamptramp) started playing around with the concept and came up with a modification called the "floating floor."  The following is a pictorial of the card I made for my friend, Joanne, in this new style.  My undying thanks to Karen and Shelly for the great ideas and inspiration!
Front of the card.
Inside of the card.
I cut the Tim Holtz die, put the figures in two rows with the tree in back.
Then, I glued the bats to the background of the top piece.
The graveyard die cut piece was glued to the Pop 'n Cut circle.

Details for my card:
I used Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor CS.  
The skeleton on the front of the card is a sticker from the set as is the saying on the back of the card.  
The two skeleton heads are stamps from Dyan Reaveley's line--Dylusions Stamp Set "Dependable Dotty."  I just masked the teeth so they would stay white, then sprayed with some of her sprays. I have my good friend, Terri Satomi, to thank for loaning me the stamps.  She has ALL Dyan's stamps and I'm still building my collection!
The hats on top of the skeleton heads are from and Inkadinkado mini set: Classic Hats 60-30453.
On the inside of the card, I used Tim Holtz's Decorative Strip die cut Halloween Shadows and his On the Edge die Graveyards.


  1. Hi Connie! I'm so glad I got to see this wonderful card. I love how you used the Floating Floor to animate your spooky scene! The rounded corners on the front edges of the floor is a cool idea, too - I'll have to try that. Looking forward to your next Pop 'n Cuts creation - have you tried the doublewide yet?

  2. Thanks, Karen, for your kind comments. I will have to look into the doublewide technique; it appears I've missed it!!! I'll be letting you know if I come up with something after I find out what it is. I forgot to tell you I made another variation of your pop up bird cage card after I made the Eifel Tower one. It is in my May 2012 archives and is titled Olde Curiosity Shoppe. I think you'll like the flying pigs, as you have that kind of humor. LOL. Thanks for stopping by.
