Spooky Halloween Card – Happy Hauntings & October 31

I am loving these two cartridges! I never really made that many Halloween cards and layouts before but now I can’t seem to stop. Good thing that I still have almost a month and a half to use these. I want to share with you the Spooky card that I made using both of these cartridges. I made this for a challenge on Cricut.com hosted by SassyLady. The challenge was to create something with our Gypsy (I <heart> my Gypsy!) using one old and one new cartridge, and the design had to include a weld and a flip or stretch of any kind. Well, I included all of it: an old cartridge – George & Basic Shapes, TWO new cartridges – Happy Hauntings and October 31, 3 welds, 2 stretches, and 1 flip!

The base of the card is actually two different shapes from George that I welded together to get the final shape that I wanted. I then flipped the welded shape, placed both shapes together and welded again to get the whole card shape.

Next I stretched the window image from October 31 to fit on top of the card front. I made two windows – one from the grey cardstock and one from black cardstock which I used the Hide Contour feature on the Gypsy to hide all of the cut parts except the four inside cuts. Then I stretched the two parts of the ‘spooky’ tree so that it looked nice behind the window. (Have I told you how much fun I have with my Gypsy?) I popped the window out on the card front with my pop dots and finished it off with some ribbon, ink (gotta ink something), rhinestones, and stickles which I added to the moon -
and the tree’s eyes and mouth -
For the inside I welded a bat to the phrase “Happy Haunting” and added a shadow -

It’s hard to see in the photo but I inked the phrase in Pearlescent Purple Brilliance ink. It gave it a shimmery appearance, just perfect for Halloween!
I would like to thank everyone who left their get well comments this past week. I read each and every one and your comments lifted my spirits and brought sunshine to my day! I really appreciate your visits and your warm words. Thanks again!
Thanks for visiting and as always Happy Crafting,
