Bazzill and Cricut Halloween card

Hello friends.  Just sharing a Halloween card made with  Bazzill paper and Cricut images.   I just happened to have detailed directions for you!  That doesn't happen often! Cut sizes are approximate, but I do have the gypsy file if you are interested.


Did you notice there's no stitching on this card?  Yep... it was weird for me to make a card without sewing.  It was made for a possible Make and Take at a crop and  there wasn't going to be sewing machines available, so I had to make it without my usual stitching around the edges.

To Make -
George and Basic Shapes cartridge
Happy Hauntings cartridge
October 31st cartridge
Wild Card cartridge

Happy Hauntings Companion folder
D’Vine Swirls folder
Candy Cane Stripe folder

Black -Raven
Purple - Bouquet
Light Purple - Purple Palisades
Light Yellow - Hollywood
Orange - Navel 
Light Orange - Mango
Dark Green - Palo Verde
Medium Green - Safari
Daisy Chain Sunshine
Glazed Spiderweb: Blackbird  

Dimensional Adhesives
White glue and/or glue stick
Tape Runner
Green Gel Pen (for cat and bat eyes)
Chalk for shadowing on image cuts

1. CARD. Cut a 6 x 6 card base from black glossy embossed cardstock having the glossy side inside the card. Layer a 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 piece of green cardstock , 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 piece of light yellow cardstock, a 5 5/8 x 5 5/8 piece of black cardstock, and 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of light purple cardstock embossed with D’Vine Swirls. Cut a 5 x 3 piece of green cardstock, emboss with Happy Hauntings companion folder (pumpkins), then cut a hilly edge along one long side. Add to bottom of layered pieces. Adhere to card base.

Add shadowing and defining lines on layers with chalk. Assemble layers, placing the hat piece last. Adhere completed image to card using dimensional adhesive.

5. CAT. Using October 31st, cutting at 2", cut from black cardstock. Use green gel pen to make eyes and black chalk for shadowing. Adhere to card front standing on witch’s broom.

6. BATS/SPIDER. Using Wild Card, cutting at 1 3/4, cut 2 Icon from black cardstock (this will give you two bats and two spiders - only one spider will be used). Add eyes to bats with green gel pen. Add shading to spider with black chalk. Shape images with fingers and adhere to card front with dimensional adhesive.
