Wicked Halloween with Bitten By the Bug 2
Welcome to the latest challenge for Bitten by the Bug 2~Halloween. If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you may have noticed I am thrifty. I hate waste. Sometimes Cricut cuts produce very usable negative cuts. As is the case with today’s cards. I cut the original and noticed the negatives could be used for a second card.
I added pearls to the boots for a little detail.
There’s a couple of determinants for whether a negative is usable or not. The number of pieces, the necessary layers and the overall cohesiveness. I decided these negatives would work. The only thing “wrong” is that witches’ boots are typically black. When I asked my husband if he could tell the difference, his response was that the layers were reversed.
A tip is to use the original cut as a template for paper placement before creating the “original” card. Everything is then perfectly placed.
I am always happy to get two for one!

After I completed these I found some Pinterest ideas that simply involved slipping a different piece of patterned paper under the boots and flourishes. It really gave it a lot more pizazz and I will try that next time.
I would like to enter these in the following challenges:
