Halloween Card with the new hAnglar & StAnglar Halloween Stamps

This week I received a lovely parcel filled with the new hAnglar & stAnglar stamps...including the new halloween and wedding stamps. I couldn't resist colouring them in and making a card. I saw this card idea on the hAnglar Blog and thought I would have a go at making one. To make the coffin shaped card I used A piece A4 cardstock and cut it lengthways. I then folded it in half so that to open it, it flops down. The outside is decorated with a Karen Foster Brad, Making Memories "Happy Halloween" flocked sticker and Doodlebug Simply Sweet Alpha's. The papers are by Autumn Leaves and were a kit I got from a Dutch Kit company a year or so ago....and I am finally using the last scraps up. For the inside I have used more of the same papers, with another Karen Foster Brad. The image and sentiment are both from the new hAnglar & stAnglar Halloween range. Don't you just love the Count Dracula.....so cute. I have stamped and coloured the images with my ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ivory/Blush (Skin)
Umber/Warm Grey 1 (Hair)
Ruby (Waistcoat & Bow Tie)
Warm Grey 1/Warm Grey 2 (Jacket & Trousers)
Warm Grey2 or 3 (Shoes)

To hold the card closed I am going to add a little Making Memories spiral clip...when I can find the ones I bought recently...if not it will be a regular paperclip with a little ribbon attached....LOL
