13 Days of Halloween, Day 5

Welcome to day 5 of 13 Days of Halloween! Today I have a 12×12 scrapbook page for you.

Start with a 12×12 sheet of Smoky Slate Cardstock. Cut two photo mats out of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 4 1/2” x 6 1/2”. Adhere downusing Snail Adhesive. On a scrap of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock stamp the greeting “Have a haunted Halloween” from the Graveyard Gate Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink.  Adhere down using two Stampin Dimensionals. I put the Dimensionals down in between the two mats so I could slip photos down under it later. 

Next you will need to cut out 3 Detailed Gate Thinlet Die. There is a secret to cutting this due out. I found if I used a shim of an extra bit of Cardstock when I run it through it cuts better. This is a very detailed die so you will need to keep running itthrough until it cuts completely through all of it. It took me 4 or 5 times Running it through for each gate. After you have the gates cut you will need to trim off the top of two gates and then lay them out at the bottom of the page to see where else you need to trim to make it fit your page. 

Next trim excess bits off, die cut the lock and the key using Silver Foil Sheets. Cut the lock at the top and slip it around the gate. Adhere gates down to make the fence then tuck the key under before it dries. I used Liquid Multipurpose Glue to adhere everything down as pictured below.

And to complete your page, cut out some pumpkins from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. Glue the taller pumpkin down with Snail Adhesive and pop up the shorter pumpkin with Dimensionals. If you want to change it up a bit, you could may your photo mats with Basic Black Cardstock cut to 6 3/4” x 4 3/4”. Hope you liked today’s project!
