Pop Out Swing Card with Ellie's Pumpkin Costume

Happy Saturday!  Here is my first time trying the paper tole kits.   I used " Ellie's Pumpkin Costume " These pieces would be super quick and easy to cut with a cutting machine (ie. Cricut, Cameo, Silhouette, Scan n' Cut etc) which I do not have, so I opted to hand cut each piece with scissors.  When cutting them out, I also put the # by it so I know which order they are meant to be layered.  Here she is all layered with pop dots! TIP:   it's BEST to go around every piece with a black felt marker (alcohol based) which I could not find my Memento marker, prolly still in a box somewhere!  But here, you can see all the white edges.... the black would just give it a much nicer finished edge.   Next, I made my card base with the swing out mechanism.... I followed Amanda's tutorial here . I used textured white cardstock for all the 3d pieces, front layer and clouds, and designer paper for grass and border.  I sponged the front white

Just had to try this style of card - fancy folds are my faves, but this one takes the cake.  Of course, you can't fold and stick it in an envelope to mail, but is great to give in person :)   Panda digi set is one I made - you can find it in my shop Here .
