Fiesta Skeletons notch-swing card

What is it about Halloween cards that make them so much darn fun‽ I've been cranking them out all week...maybe this is my way of keeping warm with this cooler weather! Much cheaper than turning on the heat. Mom sent me this adorable Halloween/Day of Dead paper from BoBunny's Fright Delight Collection, so I just had to make her something with it!
I designed this notch swing card in SCAL and cut it with my Silhouette electronic die-cutting machine, which made it easier to cut the frames as well. I'm working on a really good template that I can share with ya'll. All of my Notch Swing Cards are archived here.

Here's the other side of the swing part:

And the inside:
