At last - a Halloween card...

After seeing so many Halloween cards on the blogs I follow and on Pinterest, I felt I was really behind not having made a single Halloween card yet.  Well, last night I decided I was going to start--and finish--a card. Here's what I came up with:
I had such a good time, using my Cricut to cut the house, cat, pumpkin and ghosts from Create a Critter 2 and the "Boo" sign from Everyday Paper Dolls.

This is a side-step card, and it's really fun to add little images to each "step." I plan to make a few more of these with other images, and I'll share them once I have them done.

Here's a closer look at the little haunted house. It's just two layers, so it is very easy to put together.

The little ghosts were actually cut using the pirate ghost image. I just didn't use the pirate hat or eye patch. I used a scissor to cut off the excess parts and a couple of punches to punch the eyes and mouth in the top layer.

The little sign was actually a one-layer image in the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. It's very easy, though, to just cut it out a couple of times and use one of the cuts to make a top layer. I used one of my Halloween stamp sets to stamp the "Boo" onto it.

For the inside section (underneath the haunted house), I added a piece of off-white cardstock so I can sign the card. I used just a couple of stickers that I had on hand to wish the receiver a Happy Halloween and decorate it a bit. The candy corn stickers are dimensional and shiny. I picked them up on sale, knowing they would come in handy.

Here's one last look at this fun card. I can't wait to get started on the next one.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
