My card today features the new Fireplace Pop-Up, Fireplace Extras, Skeleton and Bat and Slim Pattern Plate - Bats. As soon as I seen the fireplace and the skeleton I wanted to make a Halloween card that was inspired by the Haunted Mansion at Disney World. I loved that ride so much!
For the front of the card, I used the house from the House and Fence Pop-Up, the tower from the Castle Pop-Up, the cemetery from the Halloween Scene, the pumpkins, cobweb and BOO! from the Halloween Elements. The bats are from the new release Slim Pattern Plate - Bats. I used glow in the dark embossing powder and VersaMark ink to create the glow in the dark elements on the front of
this card. I used Distress Oxide ink to create the background.
For the inside of this card, I made the floor by hand. I wanted it to look old and worn so with pencil I drew out the floor boards and then colored them in with Copic markers. I printed out a free download of the wallpaper from the Haunted Mansion for the back of the fireplace. I used a glow in the dark marker to all the eyes on the wallpaper.
For the fireplace, I die cut it out using 110lb black cardstock and I used Ranger paste over the fireplace die and once it was dry, I colored over each brick with Copic markers to add the gray brick details. I die cut out the small details such as the grate, the vase, the clock and mantel and colored them using Copic markers. I die cut the ghost, skeleton, cobweb, clock face and Happy Halloween sentiment and used glow in the dark embossing powder with VersaMark ink.

I die cut the ghost, skeleton, cobweb, clock face and Happy Halloween sentiment and used glow in the dark embossing powder with VersaMark ink. For the pictures on the wall, I found the "Family Pictures" that are on the walls in the Haunted Mansion and printed them out. I colored the frames to look weathered and old and added the family photos. I did the same for the "Tomb Sweet Tomb" over the fireplace.
For the fire in the fireplace, I colored it in with green Copic markers. I was going to use green lights inside the fireplace, but with the foam it would take to place the lights where I wanted them, I wouldn't be able to close the card (and yes I figured that out the hard way lol). So I tried putting the lights inside the mechanism for the fireplace, but again I couldn't get it just right. So I scrapped that idea before I ended up ruining all my hard work. I wish now I had made the fire in the fireplace glow in the dark, but that's ok. I really love how this card came out and with all the new extras in this new release, there are so many little details you can add, which I think is my favorite thing to do.
