Monochromatic (Brown) Halloween Card

This is a card I created for the Cricut Circle Blog’s Blogiversary Monochromatic Color Challenge.  The challenge was to create a project of your choice using a monochromatic color scheme at least 2 different Cricut cuts.


I stamped the dress with part of an Inkadinkadoo stamp and clear embossed it to add some texture.  I also clear embossed the boots to make them look shiny like leather.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Wrap It Up Cartridge (witch cut)

Cricut Accent Essentials Cartridge (Circle cut for sentiment)
Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Embossing Folders

Studio G Clear Stamp (sentiment)
Inkadinkadoo Snowflakes Clear Stamp (pattern on dress)
Embossing Pad and Stampendous Embossing Powder
Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Spider Web Edge and Corner Punches
Martha Stewart Glitter in Smokey Quartz
Stampcraft Dye Ink in Coffee (ink the Cuttlebug embossing)
Ribbon flower from my stash
Copic Markers (to outline on the Cricut cuts and color the ribbon flower)
Brown Tulle from Michaels

Self-adhesive foam mounts
Cardstock from my stash

I really love the way this card turned out.  What do you think?
