BBTB2: Cricut Scary Halloween Card

This is by far my favorite Halloween card I have ever created.  I really hate to give it away.  I started with an idea of a gate with a cat in the front, simple and sufficient.  Then I got carried away, there were just too many Halloween related items to add to my card - an owl, a bat in the moon, a sign, and a tombstone.  Now I want to make more of these cards.   

My inspiration started with our BBTB2 challenge this week, which is to use a swirl on a card or project.  I immediately thought to use something from the Ornamental Iron cartridge.  I really can't believe how lucky I was that these cuts turned out perfect when cut so small.  That BEWARE sign is only about 1 1/2 inches and it cut it all so nicely, those spiderwebs  are paper thin.  I inked most of the cuts and pop-dotted them to get a 3D effect.

Won't you join in our Swirl or Flourish challenge this week at BBTB2?  Link up your project picture here:   Bitten by the Bug2

  2. Amazing how those cuts came out! I am sometimes guilty of card hoarding when I have one I just really like and cannot bear to give I know what you mean! Absolutely love it!!!!!
