Fabulous Witch Shoe Charger Plate

I know it’s only the beginning of August, but I’m starting to get excited for Halloween and couldn’t wait to work on altering this charger plate that I had picked up on clearance:

I had seen the sentiment on a couple of different projects and knew I had to use it.  I laid out all my cuts using Cricut CraftRoom, so that I could make sure all the vinyl cuts would all fit on the centre of the plate.  I also used  CraftRoom to slant the “Good Witch” to give it the feel of an italic font.

The shoe cut did not have a heel tip on stiletto, so I just cut a small piece of silver vinyl to make the tip.  I also added some glossy accent to the spider “embellishment” on the witch’s shoe to add some dimension to it and trimmed off the excess legs so it would look like the rest of the spider wrapped round to the other side of the shoe.

I’m pleased with the way this turned out.  Though, after I finished it, I thought I should have made the shoe purple and green rather than purple and orange.

Supplies Used: 
Cricut Expression & Cricut CraftRoom Application
Cricut A Frightful Affair (font)
Cricut Forever Young (shoe)
Cricut Chic & Scary (spider)
Cricut Lyrical Letters Cartridge (question mark)
Vinyl from my stash
Black Charger Plate
Mark Richards Star Crystal stickers
Black Gems from my stash
Inkssentials glossy accents
LePage Extreme Repair Adhesive
Sawtooth Picture Hanger

Thanks for stopping by to have a look.
