PPA 110 Curiouser and Curiouser

This week's PPA theme is Halloween.

I decided to try a Petal Card.  This Petal Card was the Wednesday tutorial by Beate Johns on SplitcoastStampers.  Link to The Weekly Inking

I used Stampin' UP! (SU) Basic Black card stock for the 4 Beaded Circle die cuts.  The Beaded Circles are from Spellbinder's Nestabilities. I used SU DSP, Pick your Poison, from the Holiday Mini.  The sentiment inside the card is also SU from the stamp set Wicked Cool.

All the other DSP is from Graphic 45, Hallowe'en Collection.  I am a big Alice in Wonderland fan and I ordered this paper on line a few weeks ago.  I believe it has just become available.  I thought this challenge would be the perfect time to use this paper.

Making this card was a challenge.  The most important thing to do is to be sure all the angles are 90 degrees.  The Simply Scored Tool was perfect for checking the the corners were square.

This photo shows the card closed with the belly band on:

This photo shows the card open:

In the third photo I tried to show the petals partially open, but the petals kept popping open; however, I think you can see how the card works.
Learning to make this style card was fun.  Thank you PPA and SplitcoastStampers.
