Halloween Haunted House Artfully Sent Card

Guess what? I have another Artfully Sent card to share!

**Be sure to "like" my Facebook page for peeks at my cards before I blog them!**

I decided to try out this haunted house scene card to send to my niece and nephew. CTMH made a similar card that I was inspired by...I just changed the colors and added my own touch.

This is what it looks like completely closed. I put little googly eyes peeking out of the windows. My niece and nephew are gonna love that :)

Here it is opened just a little bit. Cool shadow :) I don't know why the moon above looks so bright yellow...below is more real-life.

And here's what it looks like completely open. Both of the stamps COME in the Artfully Sent collection.  I used Archival Black ink to's a richer black than the regular black ink. (But it also stains your stamps more...wash them right away!) I have always had a thing for stars and I love the new white enamel stars. They come in 2 sizes and you get tons in the package.

Here's a close-up of the moon. I used a piece of honey cardstock and then inked a Tim Holtz inking tool with Sunset ink and gently rubbed it over the moon to give it a sunset look. Then I adhered the yellow piece to the back of the Gypsy (purple) cardstock.

I wasn't sure how the details would cut on my Expression but I think it turned out quite well!

This card is on page 44 of the handbook. The finished size is 5"x7" and (unless you have the Explore), you just need to set your Cricut dial size to 7" and each piece will cut to the right size...even though the inside (purple) piece is a little smaller...keep the dial at 7" and it will cut the relative size for a 5x7 card. So cool!
