Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations – this month’s projects are all about Halloween. Prepare yourself for wonderful mix of spooky, scary and sweet. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I am one that likes the fun and funny part of Halloween.  So the card I have for you is a little more on the cutesy side.  I also love Folds.  I am using one that I have not made in quite a while.  It is a Double Z Fold and I hope you like it.




Hopefully these cute little owls are not too terrified of the night!  I paired them with a variety of other Mini Catalog items.  The Owls are from the Have A Hoot Bundle.  They each have a die to cut them with, but I only cut out two of the three using the dies.  The third is cut using a Layering Circle, as are the background bats DSP.

Here is a look at the inside and the Double Z Fold:



I purposely lined up the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper so that the pattern matched.  Now looking at the card opened out, it makes it difficult to see the bottom Z .  I may have spread it too wide for the picture.

The “BOO!” is from the Playful Alphabet Dies and the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  I love the foam sheets.  I adhered the Basic Black Card stock to the foam and then die cut, Instant sticky letters!  Woohoo!

I have all of the products used listed under supplies at the very bottom of the post.  I also have the measurements if you are unfamiliar with this fold and want to give it a try. They are after the Blog Hop list.
