Mummy Wobble Easel Card

I was inspired to create this card by Mary over at    I was looking for a really cool card to make with an action wobble and I found a similar one she made years ago.  I decided to make mine into an Easel card.  This is my very first action wobble card ever and I am hooked!
I cut an A-2 size easel card base out of black.  I then cut a single A-2 size panel out of black to finish the card base.   I found some cool Halloween pattern paper in my Scrap bin with moons and stars thought that would make a good backdrop for him.  I used my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes rectangle to cut out that panel.  I then grabbed some Ivory card stock and used the same stitched rectangle to cut that one out, this time I used my craftin desert divas outdoor landscape die to cut off most of the panel to make it into a hill.  The fence & grass I cut two of each with metal dies to line up at the base of the hill.   I cut the adorable Mummy from Cricut -  paper doll dress up cartridge.   Originally I cut him in a dark gray color with the doll layer behind in black....  but I didn't really like the way it looked so I cut the top Layer again in white and used a gray chalk to go over all of the cutlines.   I really really like how he turned out!  

I added an action wobble behind him so that he wobbles back-and-forth.   I will try to figure out how to get my little mini video I took with my phone showing him in action and add later to this post if I can.
For the bottom framed happy Halloween that holds the card open ...  I found this just as is in one of my Halloween paper pads and I hand cut it out, Might be K&Co... I only have pieces and few pages left so not sure lol.   I then placed it on a black card stock traced it and then hand cut that out as well and adhered the two together for better support.   I then placed on 4 foam squares  to pop it up so it can hold the card in the open position.
For the upper portion inside...  I cut a white card stock with one of my pierced rectangle cutting dies.  I then found another cute label in that same paper pad that I hand cut out and placed inside my card for the sentiment.   What a fun not scary at all interactive Halloween card for one of my grandkids this year 😊
