Cricut Cardz Challenge

Here is a card I made for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #44. The challenge was to make an S-Fold or Z-Fold Halloween card. My finish card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". My patterned papers are from the Cloud 9 Seasonal Paper stack that I picked up from Joann's a few weeks ago.

The bats were cut at 2" using the real dial size button on my Gyspy from the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge. I used my Gypsy to hide the faces so they wouldn't cut. Once cut, I ran them through my Xyron sticker maker upside down and applied black Martha Stewart flocking to them. I then added some orange heat set rhinestones with my Bedazzler heat tool. While it doesn't show up real well in the picture in person the eyes of the bats look as if they are glowing.

The pumpkin is from the Pumpkin Carvings cricut seasonal mini cartridge. I added one of the faces to the pumpkin and hid the outside square on my Gypsy. I added some yellow glitter to the eyes and green glitter to the stem.

The frog is from the Mini-Monsters Cricut cartridge and he was cut at 1 1/2". I inked around his edges with some moss green ink. Again, I added some black rhinestones for his eyes. The tag was cut at 2" X 3" and I rounded the corners. I inked the edges of the tag with the same moss green ink. the sentiment was stamped with embossing ink and embossed with some amethyst colored embossing powder. The sentiment and little witch are both from a Hero Arts Clear Halloween stamp set. Thanks for visiting.
