Spooky Halloween Card

Artbooking “Spooky” Halloween Card

Spooky 3a.jpg

This “Spooky” card was made almost entirely with the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge! I began with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ White Daisy cardstock base and Black cardstock overlay. The purple and orange patterned papers came from the Scaredy Cat Paper Packet.

Spooky 2a.jpg

Using the Artbooking cartridge, I cut the moon-with-bats cut-out in Sunset cardstock, and all of the other elements – fence, “Spooky” sentiment, and bats – in Black cardstock. The orange bat in the night sky was one of the cut-outs from the moon.

The Sunset pumpkin was stamped from the “Frightfully Fun” stamp set, fussy cut, and glued on to the card. To finish it off, I added a strip of Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon across the top of the card and popped the moon off of the page with foam tape.

Spooky 1a.jpg

I will be linking this card to the Color Dare Color Challenge #116, found here, Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #159, found here, Heart 2 Heart Challenges (Midnight), found here, and the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog (Halloween projects), found here.

Happy Halloween Artbooking Card

Artbooking Halloween Card

Happy Halloween 2a.jpg

Here is a fast and fun Halloween Artbooking card made with the CTMH Cricut Artbooking cartridge. I actually used 3 cut-outs (cut at 5.5″)… the card front (with the haunted house cut-out), the card back (plain shape), and the orange inlay.

Happy Halloween 3a.jpg

I arranged the card front and back shape individually on my Cricut mat so that they would merge together and become an actual card… however, I did not “weld” the shapes together (easy mistake!) and ended up with 2 pieces. I attached the card at the left edge with a couple of pieces of Black Shimmer Trim to hold everything together and make it an actual card.

I sponged the inside Goldrush circle with Goldrush ink to create a bit of a nighttime cloudy look, and added 2 black enamel stars to the sky. I stamped “Happy Halloween” in a spot where it would be the most hidden when the card is closed.

Happy Halloween 1a.jpg

I brought out my “Frightfully Fun” stamp set for the Halloween cuties and sentiment. The ghost was glued on the front of the card, and the other cuties were glued onto the overlay. This is the quick and easy version of a card like this. You could always add a lot of color, background scenery, etc. to really jazz it up if you wanted!
