Have a Monstrous Halloween! card in a box

Happy Halloween everyone!  I thought I'd better share this "card in a box" that I did for my September card workshop before Halloween passes us by.

Isn't this cute?  This was the first time I've ever made one of these.  I used the Jeepers Creepers paper pack and the Monstrous Halloween Stamp Set and Thin Cut bundle to create all of those cute monsters.  Since the card-in-a-box doesn't open like a traditional card, I added a panel on the back so you could write your message.

These cards can be made to fold flat to fit in an envelope.  I made sure mine was a finished size of a regular A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").  I put it in a cellophane sleeve to show you.  I found instructions for making this size HERE.

I had a couple of people in my class that didn't need Halloween cards so they opted for a Birthday message instead.  They did everything else the same, just changed out the sentiment (I had larger rectangles cut for them because the birthday sentiment is a bit taller.)  Here's a closer look at the "Monstrous Halloween" bundle to see other options.

I hope you enjoyed this different type of card.  I've entered it over at the "Heart-2-Heart" challenge blog for their "Jeepers Creepers" challenge.  Go check out all the other fun Jeepers Creepers creations.  You can find them HERE.  Thanks for stopping by!

Kandi, your card is so impressive and I am so grateful for the instructions you've provided! Yes, some of my friends would opt for "birthday" also. In fact, one of my friend's birthday is on 10/31. But I always make her a "non-halloween" card!

Excellent work, dear friend!
