Googly Ghouls trifold

I thought my camera died.  It's really old and then one of the screws fell off the side and the side panel kept falling off, I used some packing tape to keep it on for a while now but last week the lens cover would not open all the way and kept taking pictures with shadows all around so I could not post any pictures.  But yesterday, as I was showing someone how it stopped working, it started opening up all the way- what do you know? But guess what is on my list for my birthday?

Anyhow, is this not the cutest fold?  I saw a trifold card like this while visiting amazingly talented Elizabeth Price and had to make one for myself using the design.

The basecard is basic black- I took a 4 1/4 x 11 cardstock and scored it at 4 1/8 then 8 1/2 then punched a 1 3/4 inch hole centered on the 8 1/2 score line as shown.
 I stamped the BOOOO and the bat from the same set with versamark and embossed it using black EP (but you could use clear).  Kyle told me I needed to put some white on the eyes of the bat so I did do that after which I thought was cute.
I punched dotted scallop ribbon in pumpkin pie and attached it to the back of the front flap to add a skinnhy scallop.
 Attach a 1 3/8 inch pumpkin pie circle - centering it on the punched out circle. Make sure to put tape only on the bottom half of the circle.  Stamp the mummy on a scrap piece of white CS then punch out with 1 1/4 inch circle punch.  Add  googly eye as shown. 
I took a piece of bold brights DSP in pumpkin, stamped spider webs from wicked cool then stamped the sentiment from Border Banter in versamark and then embossed with black embossing powder.  I took the little spider from the witch in the Googly Ghoul set and colored it with the black marker and stamped it  below the spiderweb on the left. It just adds that little something that makes me smile.

You could stamp a message under the cover and then add another message on the inside. 
Enjoy! Lynda
