Halloween Stair Step Card

I have been wanting to try this idea since I first saw the stair step cards but wasn't inspired to create the layers. So I have been waiting for the right challenge and stamps to inspire me.
The last day at Stamptoberfest was yesterday but there was one more challenge open til today which was a last minute Halloween card. I decided that I was going to use my graveyard stamp, some Basic Grey Eerie paper and create a stair step card. I bought the fun graveyard stamp thinking this would look awesome on the stair step card.


The measurements are 11" x 5 1/2". You score at the following measurements: 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6", 8 1/4". Fold it like a fan. Then you basically design each layer to create a scene.

I knew I wanted my first layer to be the graveyard which was just stamping it twice on a piece of cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 4". I then cut along the edges and colored with my copics.

I cut the Basic Grey paper larger than the areas and ripped the top edges and colored with my copics.

The fence was just white cardstock stamped with the wood finish stamp from Hero Arts.

The moon was sponged and stamped on with the Inkadinkado and Hero Arts Halloween stamp sets.

I hope you enjoy my pop-up Halloween Scene! I enjoyed creating it...

Boo to you and yours!
