Here’s a spooky card for all you Halloween Lovers.
If you love a card with dimension, this card has a lot of spooky goodness.

My process for making cards sometimes changes as I sit down to create. I was getting into this
one and decided to forgo all the step-by-step pictures. Instead, I will give you lots of details.
Here’s one tip I highly suggest. (Especially with the skeleton die.)
Run the white cardstock through the Xyron Create-A-Sticker Machine* before cutting out the
skeleton die. The Xyron Create-A-Sticker Machine* puts adhesive on the back of the
cardstock, making the skeleton pieces stickers. By making stickers, adhering the skeleton
to the coffin was so much easier than using liquid glue.
- I cut a piece of double-sided adhesive foam large enough to cut the casket shape. I adhered a piece of gray cardstock to one side of the foam before die-cutting.
- To cut the casket shape. Place the casket die on the foam and run it through the Crossover II Die-Cutting Machine. Because the foam is so thick, you may want to run it back and forth a couple of times to make sure the die cuts entirely through the foam.
- Another good tip…Use a black chisel tip paint marker* to color the sides of the craft foam.
- The lid of the casket was made by sticking two pieces of black patterned scrapbook paper together and die-cutting the scrapbook paper with the casket die. (I used the Xyron Sticker Maker)
- Adhere a piece of scrapbook paper onto a piece of adhesive foam.
- Using the casket outline die, cut a casket outline from the foam. Stick the casket outline on the inside of the lid.
- Fold two small pieces of paper to use as the hinges. Glue only the top and bottom of the hinges. Not on the side of the casket.
- Before sticking the casket onto the layered card base, attach a thin black string onto the back of the casket.
- If you don’t have black string, put a little black paint between your thumb and index finger and run the string through the paint. Voila, black string.
- Tie string around the casket to keep the lid closed.
