Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller with you today for a fun and easy Haunted “Mushroom” House. This is a large card, 6″ X 7″, so that is going to require a custom envelope that you will need to create. This is lots of fun so let’s get started.
Begin by cutting out the house using the Mushroom House Folding Card. Distress Oxide Inks was used here to color the mushroom stem and the lower part of the roof. I used Black Soot for the top part but it does look like green here. It actually looks green on the finished card but I’m ok with that.
Use the same die set to cut the doors and windows. The Halloween Scenery die set was used for the tree & graveyard. One of he Stitched Circles was used for the moon and then edged with orange.
The top part of the roof was cut from a scrap in my stash. Once all pieces were cut and colored, assembly began. The ghost on the top came from one of my older Elizabeth Craft Designs set. The ghosts are cut from vellum so they would look more spooky.
The last piece added was the moon.
Now I must confess that once I got everything assembled the way I wanted it, I was not happy with the way it looked from the inside. To solve that problem – the card was closed – glued shut and mounted on a piece of purple paper. Sometimes in card making we have to take a detour.
Once it looked acceptable – it was added to a black background with a thin boarder all around. At this point – one more ghost was added.
Since this is such a large card a separate back panel was added.
On the inside the largest Indented Rectangle die was used and the sentiment was stamped.
