Halloween Scene Card

Here's another card for Halloween. I had cut the base to use for another project but it didn't look right. So, since I didn't want the paper to go to waste, I made another card. (lol) Not quite sure what I will be doing with all these cards, but I sure am having fun making them.

Finished card is A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

K & Company Specialty Papers
Cricut Design Studio
Cricut Cartridge Happy Hauntings 3D Tree (page 71) Base, Bat2 (page 53) Base
Cricut Cartridge George and Basic Shapes  Circle (moon) (page 108) Shift Base
Sizzix Sizzlits Fence, Picket
Recollections Dimensional Stickers (Jack-o-lanterns)
Inkadinkado Clear Stamps All Hallow's Eve
Martha Stewart Flocking Powder Black
Cardstock: Black, Yellow, White and Orange

Using Design Studio, I cut the tree (actually, I cut the wrong tree because this is the 3D one and has a slit near the top. I really wanted the tree on page 67. However,  I used the tree on page 71 and glued a small piece of black cardstock behind the slit and then glued and flocked the tree...can't see the slit!).
I cut the bat and the circle (moon) using Design Studio also. I'm sorry, I didn't write down the measurements.
Next, I cut the fence twice, using my Sizzix.
I glued everything down, then added the Jack-o-lantern dimensional sticker.

I cut the white cardstock at 3" x 4" and inked the edges with black pigment ink. I cut the orange cardstock at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4", inked the edges and stamped the Trick or Treat Sentiment. Glued the white cardstock at an angle, then the orange cardstock on top on angle also.

I like the way this tree turned out (even if it was originally the wrong Mistakes happen! The next time you think you have a mistake, think may have happened for a reason....just imagine what you could do.


  1. That is one spooky looking tree! I love the fence with the pumpkin in front.

  2. What a great card, the background paper really makes it special imo. Your fuzzy babies are super cute too.
