PopUp Box card with Happy Haunting

Eeeek!!!!   Number 5 in the series already! 



Good morning everyone.  Today's project with the Happy Haunting collection from Craft Consortium is a Pop Up Box card. 

 This is going to be quite brief as I shared how to make this exact size last year.If you click here  it will take you to the instructions to make the base card.

To decorate it with the Happy Haunting papers, I matted all sides 1/4" smaller. I used the enamelled black spiders web paper on the bottom, 

Designer Series Paper sizes

Base - Lower front 2 3/4 x 3 1/4

           sides 2@  2 3/4 x 1 3/4

Flaps - front   2 1/4 x 3 1/4

            sides   2@ 2 1/4 x 1 3/4

inside back cut from a panorama panel  3 1/4 x depth of panel  3 7/8

writing panel on the back - white 3 1/4 x 5 1/4


I fussy cut the images from the thick inside covers of the 6" paper pad and adhered to the top of the struts with wet glue.

The call-out words are from the wordy sheets and adhered to acetate strips with red liner tape.

Please be careful how far the call-outs overhang the edges of the card. Fold it as it will fit in the 6 x 6 envelope to give you a guide or use a larger envelope
