Boo House

This week's challenge for Cricut Cardz Challenge was to create a halloween card using the card feature from any cartridge we desired along with any color scheme we choose.  Of course there was always the card features on the Mini Monsters cartridge, but that's too easy.  So I pulled several other carts off my shelf - looked at the options offered and when I saw the house on Wild Card I knew I had to use that one.  And after I made the house cut I was ecstatic because I didn't realize that the door would cut so that it could open and close.  Yippee!!!

So for this card, I made the following cuts:

House from Wild Card cut at 5 1/4"
Spider web from Wild Card cut at 1"
Ghosts, Cat and Boo! from Happy Hauntings cut at 1"
Spider from Designer's Calendar cut at 1"

My ghosts were cut from velum and then inked lightly with a blue ink to help them stand out on the card while remaining "translucent".  Of course the one on the rooftop shows up better in the photos than the one on the inside....Oh well.

The cat and the spider were flocked to add a little texture to the card.
