Monstrous Halloween

Good evening,

I've pretty much got my craft stuff out but I've been job hunting and not spending much time making anything but I really wanted to play with paper when I saw a card on Pinterest called a Bay Window card. It was so cool that I looked up the directions on how to make one.

People, this card is so easy to make and very fun to decorate. Of course, for my first card I just did panels but you can die cut windows into them for another look.

This card does use an A2 base but I would like to try a 5 x 7 so I need to look for that or see if I can figure out the measurements. This card is so easy that I imagine figuring that out will be fairly uncomplicated.

So here is my first Bay Window card creating a fun Halloween card using an older stamp & die set from Close to My Heart which was released in 2016 I believe. I think these guys are so adorable and adding fun googly eyes just ramps them up a to hilarious!

Size: A2
Cardstock: Close to My Heart
Design Paper: Close to My Heart (Jeepers Creepers)
Embellishments: Stash (Googly eyes)
Ink: Stampin Up!
Spiderweb: Sizzix
Stamps: Close to my Heart (Monstrous Halloween)
