Obviously, this is a square card, so I simply started out with a black base and a black/gray/white simple pattern of paper.
The next thing I did was cut the moon and sky. I used a similar patterned paper on the moon in yellow, and then a solid blue for the sky. To give both cuts more dimension, I inked both, and then embossed the sky with a star pattern folder. Don't forget to use your dabbers on your inking. It gives you more control of your ink and how heavy you apply it.
I loved the moon and sky so much that I followed the same steps when adding the pumpkins to the bottom of the card. I used some orange patterned paper and then solid orange around the edges. I also inked the pumpkins and leaves.
I created my bat just as if I was going to cut him in pieces. I told the Cricut to "flatten" and "print". The paper on the left side shows how the bat printed with cutting guidelines for the Cricut. The paper on the right side shows that the bat was cut exactly to shape.
