Halloween Scenes Fun Fold Card

I loved making this card with my Stamp Clubs this month! It's got a fun Z-fold technique with both the card base and the die cut fence strip folded in a way that makes for a cool Halloween scene.


Here's how it looks closed:


And a close up of the fun detail of the front panel and pop out Vampire. (It's a standard pop out mechanism made from card stock to make him pop out when you open the card. It just takes a little strip of card stock, scored and folded into a square that you attach to the vampire's arm and then attach to the inside card panels right at the fold)


Here are measurements:

Black card base: 4-1/4" by 11" - Score at 5-1/2" and 8-1/4" (you will be folding it so the 5-1/2" panel is on the right side and then the other scoreline folds back so the front where the tree is winds up 2-3/4" wide by 4-1/4" tall)
Black strip to die-cut fence: 2-1/8" by 11" (Die cut the fence three times in a row across the strip by lining it up for each cut with the section already cut. Because it does not cut at the bottom you can make the hill a variety of heights)
To score the die-cut fence: with the right side of the fence facedown and the flat bottom edge flush against the top of the Simply Scored, score at 5-1/2" and 8-1/4" (die cuts have a "right side" based on the cut edges appearing smoother)
Black panel to die-cut tree: 2-1/2" by 4"
Gray panel for front: 2-1/2" by 4"
White panels for inside: 2-1/2" by 4"  and 5-1/4" by 4"
Thick White card stock strip for pop-up square behind vampire: slightly wider than 1/4" by 3-1/2" -- score at 3/4"; 1-1/2"; 2-1/4" and 3"
Don't be intimidated as this style card is really not tough to make and it's simple stamping and some die cutting for the decorations.
