Pumpkin Patch Spook

      This is my second post today and it's another Halloween card, this time featuring a fun image from QKR Stampede for our latest challenge which starts today and runs through the 14th.  We are now doing two challenges per month.  I know that may be confusing to those of you who have played at QKR  for years every Friday morning.  We took a bit of a break over the summer months, doing only one challenge per month, but last month we moved to fortnightly challenges which start on the 1st and 15th of each month.

     The image on this card is called "Pumpkin Patch" and it's one of my favorite fall/Halloween images.


     I have to show you how this folds into its own envelope for mailing with just a couple of extra score lines.  The address is written on the flap side when folded up and there's a pocket for a letter or gift card inside.  Without the pocket, it can be folded so that the image is inside and shows only when opened.

 Side view  Inside

Image colored w ProMarkers
Image cut w scalloped die from Spellbinders
Frame is cut w Spellbinders die
Sentiment printed and cut w Tonic Studios die
Stitched, double sided ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Orange grosgrain ribbon from stash

     Challenges:

     Be sure to play along with us this fortnight.  Our theme is always "Anything Goes" and you are free to use any image from any company but if you do use a QKR Stampede (or Eureka Stamps), your entry will be put into a completely separate draw for those who use QKR.  That increases your chance of winning by a huge amount.  

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Really fun Halloween image Connie and how clever to have this folded up into it's own envelope! Never seen one like that before! TFS! HUGS

Vicki, You have to start with 12" x 5.5" paper to get the two folds. I added another 5.5" x 4.75" piece to make the pocket, adhered on 3 sides with 1/8" Scor tape.
