Day 24 - Just flying through

Hi and welcome to everyone from the 31 Days of Halloween blog hop!  If you want to see more of the awesomeness that this blog hop has to offer, the you can find the blog roll on the left in my sidebar.

Today I have a pop-up box card.  I've been dying to make one, and when I saw this image from A Random Fan on Etsy I knew exactly how I was going to build it!

There are 3 layers to the pop up elements.  The front one is a strip of green grass with 3 gravestones.  Each is etched with RIP or a cross.  The second layer is Arie the Witch flying through on her little broom.  She's suspended in the air with acetate.  The third layer is a city scene with a fussy cut bridge.  I used some gloomy dark paper in the far background with clouds.  Each of the flaps is decorated with googly eyes, and the front one has a set of vampire fangs that glow in the dark, a halloween printed ribbon and a black felt cat.  I also added a little purple banner on black and white spiral poles.

Here's a little closeup of the flap with sentiment. 

Here is Miss Arie.  You can just see the bridge in the background, and the engravings on the headstones.  I wonder what is lurking in the grass? lol


I thought I'd share my dining table - this is where some of my creations are at the moment.  There's spiders, rats, creepy crawlies, a skeleton, poison apple, severed fingers, bloody daggar, ghost in a bottle, witches hat, folded book pumpkin and marshmallow pumpkins.  At night there's a string of battery powered white LEDs that light up my centerpiece.

Thanks for visiting today!
