Pop up Halloween Card

I was inspired by a card I saw on the internet awhile back. I like to give credit where credit is due but I didn't save the thanks to that crafter for making me want to do a card similar to hers!

Another thing I don't remember is who made the background pattern paper..I gotta start taking better notes. The pumpkin is from Cricut October 31st (sooo glad I got this cartridge back when had that great sale) and placed on an action wobble...which is fastly becoming one of my favorite card elements. On the inside I cut two slits on the patterned paper and then adhered it to the card base so that the house and fence would be "popped" on those little pop-out areas. The house is from October 31st, the fence is from Cricut MS Seasonal (welded several together and shrank them in DS to make a better scale to fit the house), the frame for the sentiment as well as the sentiment were from Cricut Happy Hauntings. I used the MS glow-in-the-dark glitter on the sentiment and the ghost is another one of the K&Co die cuts my sister gave me. To get the white layer for the frame, I took the inside of the black frame that cut out, traced on a piece of white paper and cut it just a teeny bit bigger so that I could have a white space to put the sentiment on.

I like the way this cart turned out but I've got to tell you that the house took a little bit of work. I cut it once in black. Then in DS cut another one in yellow but hid all the window cuts (lots of clicking on little tiny squares), then cut a third in orange but hid the cuts on all the windows, the back porch and the little squares in the porch area as well as the narrow slits by the porch and on the left had side so that a solid orange would show through.
