Cards in Envy Trick or Treat

The challenge at Cards in Envy for the next two weeks is Trick or Treat (Halloween cards that make us think of Trick or Treating).  Here's my card for the challenge.  

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce, Stampin'Up Greeting Card Kids and Best of Halloween, Zig clean color brush markers, Halloween Card.
Yes even though this is a fancy fold card, it still folds up flat to 4.25 x 5.5 so it will fit in a standard envelope (the requirement for playing our challenge).  I used the Stampin'Up! Thinlits circle card die to cut the card out.   The image is NBUS for me (even though it is retired from Stampin'Up!).  I colored it with my new Zig clean color brush markers.  I took a class at Scrapbook Expo when they were in town 2 weeks ago.  I really like working with these watercolor markers.  Here's a look at the card open.

My trick for the sentiment is to stamp it with Jet Black Archival ink and emboss it with clear embossing powder.  That way you don't get any black dots of embossing powder showing but still get a clean dark black shiny image.  

Come join us for some Halloween challenge fun over at the Cards in Envy blog.  

Happy Crafting!
