Booyah! Window Peeker Card

I wasn't quite sure what to call this card - it's not really a frame and if I called it a window card it sounded like it should use a die that looks like a window.  I decided on window peeker since the images "peek" out from window flaps.
I've had both the stamp set and die for a year and never used either.  Since the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches this week uses three vertical elements I thought I'd give this a try.  The die has three squares and only cuts three sides leaving a flap for a surprise inside.
The ghosts in this set come without faces - you can pick and choose from several expressions.  And you can dress them up in costume.  You can see I was thinking about making one a pirate.  It was fun just to sit and color last night.  And these colored very quickly.
For the inside backgrounds I used three colors of distress oxide inks and sprayed them with water to get some extra texture.
I used a stitched rectangle that is slightly smaller than the A2 card and the stitched window die. (Since it has three rectangles so there was no need to measure. Yay!)  I used foam tape to pop the front off the base of the card so that I could tuck my ghosts in their frame.

When the card is closed you can just see some of the ghosts peeking out from behind their flaps, and it is fairly plain, so I added a few sequins.  I'm enjoying making Halloween cards this year so you may see a few more with this set - it really is quite fun.
