Exploring Cricut - Halloween Theme

Happy Monday!

It's another week at Exploring Cricut.  We were asked to create a project with a Halloween theme, along with 2 Cricut cuts.

My card:

I started off with Basic Black, followed with a layer of Whisper White card stock.  I then added a layer of patterned paper from my Halloween scrap pile.  I matted both the image and the orange patterned paper with black card stock.  I decided to use Happy Hauntings Cartridge - one of my favorite cartridges.  I cut the mouse at 2.5 inches and the little pumpkin at 3 inches.  Using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, I cut the word "BOO" at 1 inch.  I then cut the black scallop border at 1 inch using the Elegant Edges cartridge, adhered it under the sentiment and embellished it with orange rhinestones.  For the final touch, I wrapped some black floss beneath the image for some depth.

Thanks for stopping by,
