Halloween Bridge Card - Trimcraft DT

Hello, Today I have a simple Halloween themed bridge card to share with you.  The Free Halloween downloadable papers from Trimcraft are fun, cute and have funky colours perfect for making a simple ‘Bridge’ card design, especially as they have sentiments included too.

I decided to make a little spider and add a web along with a floating Ghost for a fun Halloween greeting.

Step By Step:
Cut Dovecraft black card approx. 11” x 6”
With long side across your scoring board, score from left at 1 ½”, 3”, 8”, and 9 ½”
Download and print off the free Halloween papers, link here:
Decorate card panels by matting pattern paper onto white card and then again onto panels using double sided tape.  I’ve used pink pattern paper for centre and inner panels and turquoise skull paper for the 2 out panels.
Cut a ‘bridge’ strip from white card approx. 8” x 2” and decorate with a strip of ghost pattern paper. 
Attach bridge strip by folding in left side of card and adhering the strip to the first panel, take it across the card and adhere where it meets the edge of the end panel, this will allow the card to fold down.  Use a clear drying glue to allow adjustment.
Cut out Halloween sentiment, bat, skulls and ghost. Adhere sentiment to centre panel at top and bat to overhang left panel. 
Adhere ghost to a strip of acetate and attach to centre panel using clear drying glue on the back, hold in place for s few seconds to prevent it slipping.  Adhere skill trio to acetate and attach under bridge section.
Adhere a piece of white spiders web trim to panel at right hand side, apply adhesive where it will be covered by spider and eyeball)
Make a spider by cutting a circle of Dovecraft black glitter card, adhere black cord ‘legs’ to the back and then cover with a circle of black card. Add 2 googly eyes to spider before adhering to spider’s web.
To finish, add a couple of eyeballs (these were from last year’s Trimcraft free Halloween download papers) add black adhesive gems to ghost’s eyes and centre of eyeballs.  Add a panel to the back of your card for the greeting.
Here’s a little video to show the card:
