Cards in Envy Challenge - Now That's Scary


Welcome to another Cards in Envy Challenge!  For this challenge we are to create an A2 sized card (5.5" x 4.25") featuring things that "scare you" such as witches, spiders, bats, ghosts and goblins. Only requirement is that the card is 1/4" or less in thickness in order to fit in an envelope.
 
 I created a Graveyard Scene with Creepy Trees and a little ghost.
  • Designer Paper = K and Company "Halloween and Fall" 12" x 12" pad.
  • Cricut cartridge = Mini Monsters
  • Sentiment = Handwritten "RIP"
  • Punches = Maury (Moon) 2" circle punch
  • Other:  Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  Foam Tape.
