Erin is having a halloween challenge on her blog, and this is what I created for it.
I purchased 2 very cool cricut carts, Happy Hauntings and October 31st. I love Halloween, and these carts have so much potential.
I started with a 12x12 frame and a piece of 12x12 cream colored cardstock. With a clear swirly stamp, I stamped in orange and black swirls over the carstock.
With October 31, I cut the tree, house, fence, and owl. Using my Gypsy, I also took the house and using hide contour on the house, I deleted all of the inside cuts on the house so I could have a solid orange background for the black house to be mounted on. With Happy Hauntings and vinyl, I cut the words happy halloween and put on the outside of the glass. The tree was cut to a height of 11", and the house was cut at 6.5. I put my pressure on medium for the cuts because they were so intricate. I love how the fence turned out, its so delicate.
