Broom Halloween Card

I recently brought out my Cricut Expression machine and began using it again. I decided to make a Halloween Card and looked threw the images from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge and found the broom and wanted to see if I could create some dimension with the bristles and also make it a not so scary or kiddy card and I think I achived that idea.

 I used Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry card stock to cut out the broom.

I also used my Gypsy to help with sizing my image.

I added Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to the first layer.
 I used the Create A Critter 2 cartridge and the broom is on page 56.
 After using Tombow Mono Liquid glue to adhere the first layer I then added a glue dot to the second layer and off set it a little.

I then added a dimensional to the final layer and offset that as well.
 I again used my gypsy tool to size an Oval and Scallop Oval.

I used the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes.

I cut it out on white first to see if it would work with my broom and was satisfied and re cut with the paper I wanted.
 Using some extra pattern paper I made some banners for the inside of the card.

I used my Hexagon punch to make the banner end.
Finished card.

 I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink.

I added the broom and polka dot paper with regular Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and added the whole thing with foam squares that I recently purchased from the Dollar store to see how they work.

 Here is the inside of the card.
 The back of the card, I brought in Cajun Craze ink because that matched the paper on the front of the card.
I choose a Kraft envelope to match the card.
Here is the back of the envelope.
