Halloween Bendi Interactive Scene Card – Diemond Dies YT Hop! | CraftyPaws

I had so much fun designing and crafting this Halloween bendi interactive scene card for the 2016 Diemond Dies Halloween YouTube Hop. From start to finish, it only took about 5 hours! That’s fast for me. 🙂

Here are the bendi card dimensions I used:
1. Back panel (white card stock): 6.5″ x 6.5″
2. Background grassy hill (ground on back panel): 6.5″ x 4″
3. Middle grassy hill layer (attached from left): 5.25″ x 1.25″
4. Front grassy hill layer (attached from right): 6.5″ x 1″


To create the back panel scene, first I die cut a circle using one of the dies from the Diemond Dies Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circle Nesting Die Set from Post-It paper to create a mask and then blended on Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot to create a Halloween night sky on panel #1. Then I die cut a shiny moon with the same circle die out of ivory shimmerz paper, lighly inking over top to give the hint of the craters. I cut a grassy edges from panels #2-4 from black card stock with MFT’s Die-Namics Grassy Hills die set, and inked the cut edges with Tsukineko Brilliance Moonlight White ink with a finger dauber. I think the shine of the moon itself and how it reflects off of every element on this card not only makes each piece more visible but also adds a haunting glow.

20161028_142241-1Then I scored panel #3 at 1/2″ from the left side and panel #4 at 1/2″ from the right side. These two folded edges are glued to the back of each side of the back panel #1, but first, we need to make the tabs at 1/4″ from the opposite side of the folded sides of each panel. Just hand cut those tabs and then make a slit on back panel #1 at 4″ from the left that will fit the tab from panel #3. Lastly make a slit on panel #3 at 2″ from the left that will fit the tab from panel #4. That’s it for the bendi card structure.

Now on to the fun of decorating the card! I used the following Diemond Dies dies on black card stock and inked up all the edges with more of the Tsukineko Brilliance Moonlight White ink with a finger dauber so that each die cut would show up on the black backgrounds:
Spooky House – die cut once in black and a 2nd time with orange card stock for the shine from the windows
Flying Bats – 3 of the smallest bats for the sky scene and 1 of the medium size hanging upside down on a CC Designs Spooky Tree

20161028_143338-1Frankenstein Set – stitches used for window sills of haunted house and head bolts used as crosses on tombstone and as a grave marker
Witch Die – attached to a clear plastic strip with a brad to the middle panel #3 so that she can fly through the sky (this is a super easy way to create an interactive element)
Spooky Tree – to anchor the left side of the card
Coffin Dies Set – for coffin at right leaned up against the tree on the right and cross headstone by tree at left
Tombstone Dies Set – plain tombstone with cross from head bolt from the Frankenstein Set and RIP tombstone with letters die cut twice, inked and layered to add a little dimension
Cat Die – black cat in foreground, stalking the scene with her glowy eyes that I colored in with a Tim Holtz Distress Marker in Picket Fence (I love how this white marker coats even the darkest card stock)

20161028_143826-1Then when I had found the perfect place for each of these die cuts to create the multi-layered scene, I added all the cuties from the Mama Elephant Bootastic stamp set, Copic colored as follows:
Skin throughout (except Frankie) – E51, E21 and R20
Gold/yellow throughout – Y15 and 38
Purple throughout – V12, 15 and 17
Princess: Hair: Y15 and YR24; Pink parts of dress: RV52 and 55 with white Gelly Roll pen dot details
Mummy: N0, 3 and 5
Vampire: Vest B04 and 06; Hair, cape and shoes: C8; and Red parts of cape: R24, R37 and C6
Frankenstein: Vest and pants: C6 and 8; Skin: YG25 and 17
Witch: Stripes: N3, N5, V12 and V15; Hair E13, E07 and Y38; Cat: W3, 5, and 7; and Broom: E11 with white Gelly Roll pen dot details
