Not long to wait now, the new release will be available tonight at 9:00 EDT (2:00am UK)

I thought I'd have a little bit of fun with this one, tee hee, I was certainly chuckling away whilst I was making it!

As you will see when you read the supplies list, I got a tad carried away with this project - but having fun is what crafting is all about, isn't it!

I don't know about you but I'm not sure if I'd want to go knocking on this particular door at Halloween..........I dread to think what is lurking at the letter box!

Would you like to know how I went about creating this card?

I started with an A2 card cut from a piece of MFT After Midnight cardstock.
The door panels were cut by fitting one stitched square die inside another, adhering them temporarily with tape and cutting them out of MFT After Midnight card.  I then backed the top two squares with tracing paper to give the impression of glass panels.
At this point I cut out squares in the top of the A2 card for the windows and also the letterbox.
The cheeky little monsters were stamped in various shades MFT Hybrid ink on Copic suitable card.  As with the Flamingo earlier in the week I coloured over the top with Copic markers.........I intend to go into more detail regarding this technique in my Artistic Expression Feature on the MFT Blog later this month.
Once coloured, I cut them out carefully and adhered them to the back of the window panels.

I used the new Mail Delivery die to create the letter box and added a pair of green arms and the number thirteen from the Confetti Numbers die.
In order that the peeking monsters showed up I mounted a piece of white card to the back of the front panel, with a piece of black paper behind the letter box opening.
The door knocker and handle were created using small dies from Stitched Tiny Tags and Surf and Turf.

Whilst you're counting down the hours why not hop on over to the MFT Blog and see what my fellow Design Team members created today.

As I said earlier the release will be available to purchase from the My Favorite Things store at 9:00pm EDT
