Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Haunted Mansion" Stair Step Card

Edit: This project was featured in the October 25, 2011 edition of the Cricut Chirp!

Time for another Stuck on U Sketches die cut challenge! This week the theme is "fence." As you can see, I'm still really excited about Halloween so I created this spooky stair step card. As ya'll know, I love creating scene layouts and I really like the effect of creating one on a stair step card because of the instant dimension. 

This is a standard A2 size card (4.25"x5.5") and all the cuts are from the Happy Haunting Cricut cartridge.

The tree was cut at 3.75", the fence was cut at 1.75" and the haunted mansion was cut at 6.75". I hand altered a few of the cuts, added some extra grass cuts and lightly inked everything in black ink. I stamped my sentiment onto cardstock and hand cut the cardstock for a custom fit.  

Both the tree and the sentiment are popped up on foam for extra dimension. 

Products used:
Cricut cartridge: Happy Hauntings
Paper: Recollection designer paper and Recollections cardstock
