CAS Halloween Card

The start of school has greatly cut into my craft time...which means I have been missing out on some of my favorite challenges.  I decided to combine two that I have missed the last couple of weeks, CAS-ual Fridays and CASE Study! The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to create a card with black and white plus one other color.  Seemed perfect for a Halloween theme...so orange was my pick!  The challenge at CASE Study is an Inspiration Card challenge.  Here is the Inspiration Card by Torico-

So, I can see you shaking your head from here...thinking the cards are two worlds apart!  The card was my inspiration in a couple of ways.....I went with the negative die cut theme to frame my spider web.  I layered ribbon on the bottom and added a banner for  my saying.  See....now I am sure you can see the similarities between the two cards!  We could even go a step further....I have a hanging spider, vs. the hanging monkeys!


I finished out the inside as well.  The BOO! is cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge as well as the decorative cuts and the spider web on the front of the card.  Here is quick view of some of the Halloween themed images available on the Cricut Artiste Cartridge:


 
I layered orange cardstock behind parts of the Boo saying to give it more pop!  It looked good in all black...but even better with the touch of orange.

All supplies by Close To My Heart,except where noted:
Z1790 Cricut Artiste Cartridge
D1283 Say It in Style
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
1386 Black Cardstock
X5758 Sunset Cardstock
Spider-Making Memories
Ribbon-Unknown
