Welcome everyone:) Today's project was to make something for Halloween using Pink in the design for
So on this project I used Cricut Cartridge
A Frightful Affair which can be purchased here Erica's Store
That link will take you directly to the cartridge in her store and it is on SALE!!!!
Ok with that being said the instructions on how I did the cuts for this card are below the picture!

O.k I made this card for my grand daughters ages 1 and 3 so I did modify the witch cut.
In the original cut she is holding up a mouse so I removed it. I did not want to scare or upset my 3 year grand daughter who loves all living creatures. I wanted you to know that up front I put the little flower in it's place. O.k we will start with the Spider web which is on page 67 in your booklet. I did the blackout cut of the web first in the dark purple. Then I did the standard web cut and it was done at 3 inches.I used Stickles to add the sparkle to the web.  Next I did the Happy Halloween phrase and I cut it at 3 inches also and is on page 34 of your booklet. I cut it first using the shadow option then again in the standard cut and layered it. I then added Fire Fly Stickles on it to make it blend with the Purple Pink and Green theme that I have going on. You will find the witch on page38 of the booklet. She is cut at 4 inches. I did the shadow cut first in Black then cut it at the standard cut in white and then again in layers. I had to do it that way in order to add the flesh color with a copic marker then I cut the layers in pink and added Cotton Candy Stickles to bling it up. When that dried I added Fire Fly stickles to the brim of her hat, boots, and cauldron. I then used a tiny flower to put in her hand and some bling rhinestones for the bubbles because this witch is cooking up happy Halloween wishes:) I finished the card with a Bo Bunny double dot lime green bow. I purchased the ribbon from Erica's store. So that is my project in a nut shell! I hope you enjoyed it and leave me a comment!!!
