Spooky Day Duo

I just picked up the new Cricut Lite cartridge, Trick or Treat. It is so adorable with all kinds of kids in Halloween costumes. I just had to play with it and made a couple of cards. I also used Day 176's challenge at 365 Cards to create these cards. The challenge is to use at least four techniques to add texture to the card.
Both are 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and fold at the top. I used white cardstock for the base of both of them. I then cut some patterned cardstock at 5 1/4"x4." Both patterned cardstocks are from DCWV. I used Elegant Edges to create the mats for both cards. They are cut at 4." I embossed the white layer on both. The spider web one was done with a Fiskars embossing plate and the other one was done with the Polka Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. I cut each little cutie at 3 1/2." I used pop-dots to adhere them to the card. I stamped my sentiment on white cardstock that I cut into a banner shape. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms. I used pop-dots in the center of the sentiment and adhered the ends down to the card for a little dimension. I added flocking to the hair of both cuties, Stickles to the eyes of the spider girl and the pants of little Frankie, gems to the banners and also the eyes of the spider, pearls to the eyes of Frankie, and glossy accents to the spider fangs and treat bucket of the spider girl.


  1. These are adorable. I love all the layers and the texture. Now I have to check out the Trick or Treat cartridge!

  2. Great card! Love how textures work for your card!

  3. i just purchased the Trick or Treat cartridge a week ago and can't wait to find time to sit down and make some Halloween cards! I hadn't even heard of the cartridge. . .just happened to see it at the Wallmart store here. Thanks for giving it a plug and for creating a card to get us "in-spidered" to create.
