Halloween Argyle

So, today's card I made for the CricutCardzChallenge blog challenge #42, to make a Halloween card using the card function of any cartridge. Well, I got to looking at my cartridges and I thumbed past the Argyle cut on the Wild Cards cartridge. Hmmm, to do the entire cut and make a Halloween cartridge without using a Halloween cartridge....that's sounds interesting. So, I cut the base card at 5 1/2" and then the orange glitter mat was cut from Core Couture 'Photo Shoot' paper by Core'dinations (love it). I cut the first layer of the argyle (the green) from the DCWV Hauntings stack and then the top layer in just solid black. The sentiment is another one of the self adhesives that came in the Making Memories Spellbound collection. I mounted it on another small piece of the orange glitter paper and then rounded the edges off by using a circle punch.
On the inside, I used another sentiment from the Cloud 9 Halloween Quote Cards set, and mounted it on some scrap green.
