Halloween Happy Haunting Circle Shaped Card

Made this card using a Your Next Stamp, Happy Haunting, that I recently won. Made it a circle shaped card using a Spellbinder die. To make the circle shape you place the top cutting plate in a way that the entire circle is not cut for first part and then move the circle to mimic the circle and again place the top cutting plate in a way that the entire circle is not cut but joins to the first part of the circle cut. What I did some time ago was made a template with cardstock that I keep and use it to line up the circle die.

The dotted paper is Stamp Fairy digi paper Bright Dots Orange.

Stamped the Haunted House twice, cut out the 2nd stamped image, paper pieced it over the first stamped image and popped it up on top of the first image with foam adhesive.

Stamped sentiment & used Stampin' Up punches for sentiment tags.

Added some stickles to the moon. 

Photographed next to the styrofoam pumpkin hubby carved in 2011 of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.

  4. Cute Halloween card! The haunted house in the circle shape is so fun. Thanks so much for joining our challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps! :)

  5. A really bright Halloween card and a great shape. I am not sure it fits the theme as that's the smallest bat I have ever seen...I think we would have liked more focus on the 'things with wings'. Great seasonal card though.
