Poison Halloween card made using the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cricut cartridge

Hello, friends!

Today I have a Halloween card that I made using the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake cartridge and the Mischief Close To My Heart paper line. I love all of the Martha cartridges especially this one!

This is the paper line I used.
I cut 'poison' out at 2 1/2" and the witch out at 1".
I cut out a circle at 1 1/2" to put the witch one. I inked the edges with a little bit of gray ink to make it look like a moon.
Now people ask me every year what would you make a Halloween card for. I always tell them that they are great to use as thank you cards around Halloween time. Just stamp a thank you sentiment on the inside and you are ready to go.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Great card! I love MS cake carts. More versatile than the punches for paper crafting.
I like Hallowe'en cards to send to little people who are too far away for me to share a treat with. Add a few stickers and a stick of gum and they are so excited to receive mail.
Thanks for sharing! :)

Awesome card! I too love MS cake arts.
I make Halloween cards for my grandkids and instead of candy I put $5.00 in each one for their Halloween treat(since they already have their candy treats) and they love it!

I don't usually think of Poison at the same time as Cake - but you make it work. Thanks for sharing.

Great card. I love the witch. We send Halloween cards like others send Christmas cards. I usually get them made in the summer, when there is a bit more time to get creative. We take the grandkids pictures, in their costumes, in late September. Then send the cards out a week or two before Halloween. I still send Christmas cards, just not as many and not as creative. We found that people love the kids in their costumes.
