Sharp Dressed Man

Hello.  Welcome.  I admit it, I'm a bit of a Halloween Junkie.  So when I saw the new release at Cheery Lynn I was smitten.  My order arrived today and I decided that I would use one of the new dies to decorate the card folder I was making for the cards I made yesterday.  

Isn't that Frank just so cool???.........

I made my folder with a piece of 20 x 30cm red Bazzill.  I scored at 2.5, 14.5, 15.5, and 27.5cm.  Then I added a strip of DCWV patterned paper matted on brown on both sides.  

I folded the two flaps in and stuck the top and bottom edges down.  I put my cards I made yesterday in the folder.  You can see them HERE

I used a 10 x 10cm of the DCWV paper, matted on brown card and then cut it into 4 pieces.  I arranged the four pieces across the card and added a paper pieced Cheery Lynn Frankenstein from the Fun With Frankenstein set.  I borrowed the sunglasses die from the Cheery Lynn Skeleton set.  

The letters and bats are Sizzix die cuts.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
