Spooky Sibling Squeeze

Hi ya friends,
I have another Halloween card to share. I love making interactive cards and this is a basic way to create one.  Here's the creepy cover:
 A simple belly band wraps around the card to hold it closed.

Here's what's inside:
 Awww, poor Tilda & Edwin are in a spooky forest in front of a haunted house! Eeeek!

So how are the trees, Tilda & Edwin up?

Here's the trick...
 It's your basic tab pop up card style. I started off with black strips & then the ol' brain clicked on & then used clear acetate strips to make the mechanics more "invisible."

Here's a buzzard's view:
 The trees were cut on my Cricut using the Happy Hauntings cart (soooo luv this cart!) All the trees are on tabs so when the card is closed the trees lay flat & when you open it, all of the elements pop right up. Gotta love the simplicity :)

Here's one last peek:
 "I do believe in spooks, I DO believe in spooks, I do, I do!" No worries, this happens to be the house at 1313 Mocking Bird Lane and Herman & Lily Munster are just your typical American family ;)

That's for peeking!
Gotta go!
