Artfully Sent Halloween Pop-up card

Halloween is only 10 days away!  I better get my Halloween items posted.  This is one of several cards I created the day my Artfully Sent cartridge arrived.  I played around with most of the Halloween items and created some fun cards!

Here's the front of my card.  The web and spider are from page 43 of the handbook.  I welded the word Haunted using the Artfully Sent font in Cricut Craft Room.

Colors used are Slate, Goldrush, Smokey Plum and Black

Now for the inside...

Isn't it fun?  

This pop up was just so easy!  It's 2 pieces, 4 total if you count the tree and web.  The haunted house with fence in black were simply glued on to the "bracket" that's part of the card base.  The ghosts are also part of the card base.  They're cut to allow the color of the card front to show through.  
The haunted tree and headstone are one piece cut from Smokey Plum.  

I took a scrap of silver glitter paper and filled in the fence.  You don't need to but I was a little rough getting it off of the mat and it wanted to curl.  I filled in the windows with gold glitter paper.  

On the handbook pages below you'll see that items that work together are similar color.  The popup card is the lower page.  The popup has 4 elements that are all in various shades of orange.  They will be sized to work together to make a great card at 5."
  This is a 5x7 card.  It's 5" tall when folded so you'll set your dial size to 5"
