Things That Go Bump in the Night

I just had to create this card when I saw what the challenge was over at Cardz TV for challenge #91.  I already knew in my mind it had to be zombie related because I love zombies and they scare the heck out of me.  The other part of this card was very important to me because I wanted the hand to come out of the ground.  Then I remembered I saw back in one of my magazines a gift bag someone had made that did exactly what I wanted my hand to do.  This is my attempt at what that person created.

I used these items to create this card:
  • Design Studio 
  • Life's a Party Cricut cartridge for the tombstome
  • Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge for the ghost, the hand, the name "Willy Rot"
  • Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge for the dirty mound
  • stickles
  • brad
  • Color Box ink
  • stencil brush
  • white gel pen
  • pop-dots
  • black pen
  • foam squares
  • misc. Halloween stamps
  • straw
  • floss

I am also entering this card in Paper Cutz Challenge #109 titled "Caution - Ghost Crossing!"  The requirements were to make a card, LO or craft project for Halloween using a Cricut cut, hand stamped or digital stamped ghosts, and the colors black, white, purple and orange ONLY!
I am also going to enter it in Lia Stamp Challenge #3 - move around which required the project to have a moving element and hopefully I achieved that here!!!  When you pull up on the ghost the hand rises from the grave...creeeeepy!!!
I am also entering this card in Getting Cricky - Simply Sunday Challenge which is anything Halloween!

I'm so excited this project was so much fun and it turned exactly the way I planned it...I hope you like it as much as I do!

****This was an article in Paper Crafts October 2008 and is where I got my inspiration from...I hope this is helpful to those of you who want to try this project.  I made my own alterations to achieve my card but by no means is it perfect.****
