Now let's have a look at Tasha's amazing CUBE card.
Talk about squares!!
We knew this challenge feature was made for Tasha since most of her cards are square but she really went above and beyond with this card and tutorial.


Hi Ai Fans!

Tasha here sharing a Halloween Triple Cube Card featuring the 5506 - Peek-a-Boo Set and new 5849 - Halloween S2 Paper Pack. I LOVE creating Halloween projects and this interactive card is super easy to make and so much fun to decorate!

The cute little Trick or Treaters were stamped with black ink and colored with Copic markers. To attach them to the card, I folded a little piece of paper in half and glued one side to the box and the other to the back of each character. I like that they are standing, but also lay flat when the card is folded.

For the greeting I embossed "Trick or Treat" from the 5603 - Halloween Sentiments Set. This set is great to use with all the cute Ai Halloween stamps, I also like the variety of sentiments and styles. 

Lastly, I used three different pieces of pattern paper from the Ai 5849 - Halloween S2 Paper Pack to decorate and complete the design. 

I hope you enjoyed this card and will join in the You're such a square! Challenge!
