 So I decided to make a Joy Fold Card for today. Would you believe I have never made one before? I'm sure instructions are on the Scor-Pal site, but I used Beate's Joy Fold Tutorial, which was very easy to follow. I did change up the sizes a little bit from Beate's instructions, but the basics are all there. I am going to have declare Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor 6x6 pad as my most favorite Halloween paper! I'm getting down to only bits and pieces of scraps!
 I stamped the ghost image and cut it out with Spellbinder's Labels Twenty. I used Eclipse Tape to mask the ghost and lamp, while I airbrushed some green around the edges. I hand cut the black outer layer. 
 Here are the Copics I used to finish it up. On the ghost I added a little color using BG70 and T1... but it doesn't really show in the pic. 
 I stamped the CUTE little spider on the small center flap and just added some quick color with the Copics shown.
 You can see how the spider center panel adheres to the card in the above picture.
 I tried to take a picture of how it folds up. It's an EASY and fun folded card. The top flap tucks under the top edge of the circle/button. I punched three black 1" circles and glued them together, adding the button on top... I made it stronger with the three circle layers so that it would not get bent back easily with the opening and tucking under. 
A fun little loopy bow with Bakers twine on top of the button and some Crackle Accents (it has not dried and cracked yet) on top of the pumpkin and lamp post.
