Grimm Reaper!


I made this card to give to a couple of good friends for Halloween.

ALL cardstock is from The Paper Company's value packs.
I started with a 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" piece of purple cardstock and folded it in half for the base of my card.  Then, for my first layer, I cut a piece of black cardstock at 5 1/4"x 4".  I cut a piece of orange cardstock at 5"x 3 3/4" and added a piece of purple polka dotted grosgrain ribbon and secured it on the back using regular Scotch tape.  Then I attached it to the black card stock using my ATG gun and then attached the whole thing to the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I used the "Mini Monsters" cartridge with my Cricut Expression to cut the Grimm Reaper.  I cut him at 3 1/2" and added a shadow to him to add a little more to it and to make it stand out more.  I secured the ghost to my card using 3D-Dots to make it pop off of the page, making it the main focal point.
Then to finish off my card I used a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "Spooky Puns" set with a Stampin' Up! Classic, Basic Black, ink pad for my sentiment. 

Happy Crafting!!!!
