SWEET & SPOOKY POP UP CARD | with Guest Designer Wanda Guess

Hi friends! It's Wanda Guess here! How have you been? I've missed being here with you on the Doodlebug Blog - and I'm so happy to be back as a guest designer! I love Halloween, and the only thing better than Halloween is....Doodlebug Halloween! I look forward to the new collection every Fall! Today, I'm sharing a project I made with the new Sweet and Spooky Collection. It's fantastic! I love how Doodlebug incorporated some aqua and pink in with all the other traditional Halloween colors. It's fresh and cute with just the right amount of spooky!

My card today is a pop up card! I made a little street scene for Halloween night - with trick or treaters, a haunted house, and some adorable ghosties! I used a die set that makes a pop up card - there are many on the market, or you can make your own too! I love that Doodlebug papers are double sided, so the front is just as cute as the back!! This card folds into an A2 envelope, and I used the awesome Cards and Envelopes Sweet and Spooky pack for the envelope.


I assembled my card from 12x12 Spooky and Sweet paper using the aqua spiderwebs paper as a nice neutral background. I used lots of icon stickers and Odds & Ends die cut pieces to decorate everything! When I first started paper crafting it was a 'thing' to make cards entirely from stickers! And it's so easy with the gorgeous stickers from Doodlebug! I put the haunted house in the background and the cute trick or treaters.... And then I glued the ghosties to the top to make it look like they're flying around.


Those big cardstock stickers from the This & That Stickers are perfect for sentiments! I used the Happy Halloween banner sticker across the bottom of my card and decorated with a few shape sprinkles.


I used the orange envelope from the Cards and Envelopes pack and decorated the front of it with matching stickers. I also splattered on a bit of black paint for good measure.



Here is the back of my card - again, the double sided papers make any project just that much cuter!!


That's it for me for today! My supplies for today are listed below. I hope you have a very Sweet and Spooky Halloween! All treats and NO tricks! It's been my pleasure to hang out with you on the Doodlebug Blog.  Have a great day, and Happy Crafting!
