Cricut Cardz Challenge #44

Hi Everybody!
Another great challenge going on over at Cricut Cardz Challenge !  This time we were to make a Halloween Z-fold or S-fold card using any carts or colors we wanted.  I was a bit nervous when I saw this was our challenge, since I haven't been making cards that long, and I've never done any folds other than folding in half!  I've never even done a gate fold or anything! So I went on YouTube and searched for how to make this type of card, and funny enough Mary's YouTube channel came up with a tutorial.  Here's what I came up with, and the details:

*All cuts from the Happy Haunting cartridge
*Used my Gypsy for sizing
*tree cut @ 4.25"
*ghost cut @ 3"
*grave cut @ 2 1/2"
*paper = Martha Stewart (base), DCWV (grave), Best Occassion Glitter Paper (ghost)

Here's what it looks like opened up.

*I used my white gel pen for the only kind of stitching I can do!
*I added bling for the eyes on the tree.

*I used the stamp set A Haunting We Will Go by Pink Cricut. (These stamps rock!!)
*I also added red Stickles on the drops of "blood".

*This cat sticker fit perfectly on the fence and added that perfect extra dimension.
*Also stitched on the fence.
*Added green Stickles to the grass.

Hope you like it! I was happy with how it came out, and would definitely make another card with this kind of fold.  So go make your own Z-fold or S-fold card and join us over at the Cricut Cardz Challenge!
