Happy Halloween!!!

Here is another fun, but elegant card using the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  It's a pocket card with insert and uses the Glossy White Card Stock and a masking technique.

The pocket is cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", then scored and folded at 4-1/4" and 7-3/4", then the edge is torn a bit with another torn layer underneath it.  Use Sticky Strip to attach just the sides of the pocket.  

The inside card is 4" x 4-3/4".

Here is some detail of the making.  I stamped the trees first on the Glossy Card Stock and allowed them to dry.  I then cut paper to resemble the shape of hills, held it over the ground part and sponged the sky blue, then took the opposite piece of paper I cut, held it over the sky and sponged the ground green.  I will try to get a technique video posted on this after the craft show.
