Cricut Cardz Challenge #40

Hi Everybody!
Ok, I don't know if I have ever been this excited to show a project!  This is my first project for the Cricut Cardz Challenge Design Team.  We were to use a scalloped shape (oval, circle, rectangle, or square).  I decided to use the negative space for a scalloped rectangle. Since Halloween is my absolute FAVORITE holiday, I wanted to make that my theme.  I came up with this shaker card. I just love how the ghosts look like they are floating through the house!  Here are the details:

*Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cart
*shaker box cut @ 4.5"
*used my Gypsy to lay a scalloped rectangle on the front
*scalloped rectangle is 3.43"
*paper is AC Specialty Foil paper
*Boo and Haunted House are from Stampin' Up
*ghost are confetti that I've had in my stash for YEARS

*The blingy brads in the corners are from Recollections (sent to me by my Circle Sister-Hi Karen!!)
*I used StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp on the plastic.
*The plastic I used is the packaging from a Cricut cart!
*Stamping the haunted house on the plastic was perfect to show the ghost going "through" the house.

*I used the part of the rectangle that was cut out, and flipped it over to use the white side. Then I sprayed it with Graphite Glimmer Mist.
*I used my ATG gun and glued down a piece of patterned paper, then layered the frame on top of it.

I really like that foil paper.  It has great texture, and is so shiny!
