OK, I FIBBED A LITTLE. . .

Hey All! As the title of this post suggests, I told a fib. However, it was unintentional. I know my last post said "the last of the Halloween cards, but I just had to post these Halloween cards that I made at the last minute for a couple of friends and family that came to my annual pumpkin carving night. I had made treat boxes for them, but then decided I wanted to make those cute stand alone pop up cards. I thought they would make cute table decorations sitting at each place. So here they are:



Here are the close ups of each one:









These are similar to the stair step card in looks, however each is an individual scene. I like how they turned out, and they do make great place setting embellishments for the table. And yes, even though I added stand up pieces to the cards, they still fold flat to fit into envelopes!

OK, this is a short post. Just wanted to share these with you. The last Halloween subject post is coming. I am working on Halloween treat bags for my favorite neighborhood dogs. You know me and dogs. . .LOL. Thanks for looking! See you on your blogs!

Best,

Curt O'Brien

Love the great stand up cards and so does Julie. She actually stopped cleaning her house to come take a look. Great. Spooky to think Halloween is just a few days off. Love it. Pat

These are so AWESOME! I love your detail in each of them, and to use them for place cards was absolutely brilliant!! =) This really looks like it was such a fun night for all, and makes me want to join you! I think this year we are not having a Halloween party at our place since the wedding is in a week!! We'll definitely celebrate next year. Big Hugs for the pretty card you made for me!! I LOVE IT!!

I have yet to make one of these, and yours are awesome! I will have to get home and find the template and get one started. Thanks for the inspiration. I have linked onto your blog several times before because I remember your dogs! Happy Halloween!!

dpkennedy said...

Wow, I love these! What great place cards for a dinner! I should be so organized! Ha, I am making a Halloween card for the Enabler tonight (Halloween night!) to give to her tomorrow when we go to a stamp show. Each year we try to top each other, but I am so not feeling it. These pop-ups thought might really be a great idea-wheels are turning now! Thanks Curt! BTW-Love your Jack-O-Lantern! Happy Halloween!!
