Halloween Plaids

The new challenge starts today at
Double D
and being hosted by Team Darlene
and the theme is
and using the mood board below  for inspiration!

Well, to me plaids make me think of flannel shirts, cool autumn nights
and a nice toasty blanket to curl into.

However, I went an entirely different way with my!

A few years back I made a few fun witches boot cards for Halloween that I had seen on Pinterest early on,
and while looking for a 'plaid' paper to start off with
I found a Halloween one, so right away I thought of making
a witch boot with it!

I used my Cricut Explore to cut it out,( though I made this one a bit
larger then the two I did in previous years),
and  Cricut Design Space using Happy Hauntings cartridge.

I cut the boot 3 times, twice in black card stock
and once in the Halloween plaid.
The other pieces were cut from black glitter paper and orange card stocks.

I used a purple twill ribbon that I had dyed myself.
when a few years back the rage started 
(and is still going strong)with those beautiful
shabby, died twill ribbons, I made several of my own.
I think it is much less messy and easier to just buy them
ready made though!

That about sums it up..pretty easy really as my Cricut Explore
did most of the work for me!

Make sure and head on over to the Double D blog to see  all
the design teams projects.  One thing I love about our teams
is the versatility of the designs from CAS to Shabby Chic
and everything in-between!!

Fun, Fun fun. I love the boot and all the fabulous colors. I can tell by looking at this that the cricket did not do all the work. That's like saying your die cutting machine picked the papers put all the pieces together and added all the trims. Just fabulous.

Leslie Miller said...

Unbelievably cute! That is one fashionable witch who wears this boot! The black sparkle is so pretty and the ribbon -- wow! The ruffles and scallops and eyelets make quite a statement... as in "AWESOME"!
