Sweet Little Witch Times 2

I had alot of fun today making this card style. It is called an easel card, as when its opened up and folded~ it makes its own easel. Sometimes the cards that look complicated are the easiest to make. This one falls into that category. Alota bang for your buck!
The adorable little witch stamp is from a British company ~ Pink Gem. I was surprised how fast she got here from "across the pond". I paper pierced her dress from an orange plaid sheet from my never ending stash, then used my nesties "labels one" to cut her out. While still in the nestie, I sponged some Concord Distress Ink by Ranger onto her background. She is colored with Copics, and her boot fur and the yellow stars are glittered, although its hard to see that in the photo. The spider web punch is Martha Stewart and the Spider is from the Stampin Up set- "From The Crypt". He is done in Versamark and embossed in black.
The green glittery paper is from a K and Co. Halloween paper pack I got last year and never used till now. The 3-d embellishments are from a company called Colorbok.
This photo shows you how she looks when stood open like an easel. See how the inside is also decorated and part of the whole design? And very easy to display at home or on a work desk, etc.
One of the things I like best about these is that they fold up flat for mailing or to put away till next year.

This is a side view of the card. Tomorrow I will show you the other card made with this same little witch and same card style- but totally different colors.
Many thanks for stopping by...
