Cricut Artbooking Skull and Bones card!

Hello, friends!

Today I have a Halloween card that I made using the Artrbooking cartridge and video!

I got a question yesterday about including the sizing for my cricut cuts. I use exclusively Cricut Craft Room and often size the cuts once they are on the mat. Quite a few of my creations, today's project included, are not just a simple cut. I weld, layer, and manipulate most of my cuts, so giving the sizes of each one would not be helpful anyway. For example, today's card could not be cut directly from the machine as is with out using the Gypsy or CCR. If this changes at any point in the future I will start including my cut sizes.

To make this card, I welded the skull and cross bones onto a rectangular cut. Then I stamped my sentiment using versamark ink and heat embossed it using a lime green embossing powder. For the ribbon, I colored color ready seam binding with a CTMH marker in Gypsy.

Captain Jack Sparrow & I like this. Melanie, did you know there's no title on your blog posts? I've created an Autumn card like your Fall Tree card and there's no title so I cannot click to get a link to put on my blog post.

As usual your cards are great! I would love to win the Home Decor Vinyl Wall Art cartridge. I purchased one of each of color that Provo Craft had to offer when I first got my machine. I have been trying to screw up my courage to tackle Vinyl if I win this cartridge it will give me just the push I need. Keeping my fingers,eyes,knees and whatever else I can,crossed!
