Haunted Park: My Poppystamps Design Team Post for 9/1/2013

Haunted Park    

I love Fall and Halloween so here is my Haunted Trees.  These use many of the same Poppystamps and Memory Box dies from my August 20th post.  These dies are so versatile there are so many ways to use them. Save your scraps from cutting as they can be used for other things.  For example, the insides of the Village Lamp can be used as coffins for a spooky graveyard scene.
Note:  The card is sitting in a wooden base in order to photograph it for the blog.

Madison Park Bench (881)
Village Lamp Post (893)

Create the Card
Step 1:  Cut a piece of 8 ½ x 11 inch Concord Grape card stock in half and then score at 4 ½. Rotate card so that the opening is on the bottom (versus opening to the right side).
Step 2:  Assemble the scene as above or to your liking

If a greeting is desired stamp it inside the card now and your card is complete!
