Lola Mummy

I made this card using Lola Mummy from Simply Betty Stamps along with the digital stamp Halloween Haunted House from Make It Crafty. This project is for the Second Day of Halloween Challenge which is to create a card or project using two Trick-or-Treaters. With little tidbits inbetween all the home chaos, it took me all day to color it!

I doubled up Lola Mummy pairing as two sisters and put them out Trick-or-Treating in front of a spooky Haunted House. This was my first attempt at this type of accordion fold card and I think I guessed wrong. But at least it stands and can be used as a display.

Here's a picture of just the background where I colored the sky in waves of purple. Because I knew Lola was going to be on the left side I tried to make plenty of room for them to walk and moved the house to the far right.

Did you know? The Fabian strategy is a military strategy where pitched battles and frontal assaults are avoided in favor of wearing down an opponent through a war of attrition and indirection. While avoiding decisive battles, the side employing this strategy harasses its enemy through skirmishes to cause attrition, disrupt supply and affect morale.
