Technique Tuesday -- Tunnel Card

Hi! It is Technique Tuesday time here at Sparkle N Sprinkle. Halloween is right around the corner. I want to show you this Halloween tunnel card I made.  Tunnel cards are fun to make and help to show off a focal point. I hope you will enjoy making one of your own!

Supplies needed:
  1. 2 different patterns of patterned paper - both cut at  5 1/2"   x  8 1/2"
  2. die cut shape for window
  3. adhesive
  4. stamps and color medium
  5. embellishments
Fold the bottom patterned paper in half, open it up and lay it flat down on your work surface .  Add your focal point to the center. Mine is a die cut haunted house. You might want to add a stamped scene, a saying, etc.

This is the time to add any glitter or other embellishments to the center piece.  I added glitter to the windows.

Take the other patterned paper piece and fold it in half.

Open it up and fold the 2 side flaps in half.

Isn't this great? No measuring! Now take your die and place it on the center fold and cut it out with your die cut machine.

Now place adhesive on the outer flaps and adhere on top of the other patterned paper piece.

Add embellishments and stamps to the front.  I hope you will try this fun card. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

I never saw a tunnel card before and I just love it! It's really great to showcase that spooky house with those glittery windows. To be sure, I'll be trying a card like this one. Thanks for sharing.
