The new Cricut Cardz Challenge is to make a Halloween S-Fold or Z-Fold card . My card base is black card stock and is cut to 4 1/4" X 11. I scored it at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". Folded it in half then folded the left front back. I added an orange mat cut at 4 1/8" X 2 5/8" on the outside and inside small flap. I then cut a black and white polka dot mat at 4" X 2 1/2" also for the outside and inside small flap. For the base inside I cut my orange mat 4 1/8" X 5 1/8" and the polka dot mat at 4" X 5". I inked the edges of all my pieces with some Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress ink.
My house is cut at 3 1/2" from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I cut the base from an orange yellow and the top layer from black card stock. I then painted the black layer of my house with some Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearl. My mat for the house is from Paper Trimmings and is cut at 4". I cut the base layer out of gray and the top layer out of black. I adhered the layers together and then spritzed it with some iridescent glitter dust spray. My patterned paper is from an Echo Park Apothecary Paper pack from last year.
I hope you will play along with us for the challenge.
