DIY HALLOWEEN CARD: THE STYLISH WITCH DESIGN

Prepare yourself for another post in our Crafty Chaos series....

Check out this cute Halloween card! :)


Isn't that witch stylin'?! Of course she is! And you can make your very own "Stylish Witch" card for Halloween of 2013, using a Cricut Cartridge called "A Frightful Affair" on (Cricut Craft Room...or you can just buy the cartridge)! Here is how...

Step 1: Cut out the bottom layer in green, the middle layer in white, and the top layer in black at about five inches tall.



Step 2: Use the Scotch Glue Stick to glue all of the layers of the witch together.



Step 3: Pick out a card--we used a dark purple!

Step 4: Before gluing the orange layer onto the card, ink up the edges with some black ink! Then use a heat tool to help the ink dry faster (so you don't end up smudging the ink all over). A blow-dryer would work, too, if you don't have a heat tool.


Step 5: Finally, glue the orange layer to the card.

Step 6: Center and glue the witch onto the orange layer/card.


And....wallah!! That is it! Now you have yourself a lovely "Stylish Witch" card!

Happy Halloween, and happy card-making!

    1. Thanks for your comment! A monster card would be so cute! So, "A Frightful Affair" has some monster-ish things, depending on what you had in mind; there is like a wolf-man and Frankenstein's creature and that sort of thing. However, you might want to look at Cricut's "Mini Monsters" cartridge. It's currently on sale: $22.49 (reg. $29.99) for the digital version, or $29.99 (reg. $39.99) for the actual cartridge. It has monsters that, in my opinion, would be so cute for a little boy's Halloween birthday party. Let us know what you come up with! :)
