Steampunk Spells Pop Up Card

Morning All!
Back with another little Pop Up Box Card. In my last post I explained that I had found the fab tutorial for the mechanism here - I then went to town decorating it in my own style.

This time I decided to make a Steampunk Spells version - again with goodies from the online store Absolute Scrap. This collection is great with lovely rich colours and plenty of images to cut out. I glued my bats to wire so that I could have them flying above the other images and popped on a little brass cat charm, orange gems, Stickles and Glossy Accents.

The Halloween border around the base of the box and stripy paper is from the Happy Hauntings collection.

Again, despite all the 3D dimension, this card folds flat and fits inside a 6x6 inch envelope.

I hope you like this version and perhaps have a go at creating one yourself.

 I would like to enter it into the Ali Craft October challenge which is 'Halloween', My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge and the Cards for Men Challenge which are also Halloween, and the Papertake Weekly which is 'Happy Halloween Hues'.
Anyway, thanks for popping by! Hope you like this pop up card and have a go yourself!
Best wishes
