Halloween Votive Holders for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Fright Night

This week's challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "Fright Night" and we hope you can play along with us here.  Our randomly selected prize winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the SVG Attic.

Halloween is quickly approaching and I wanted to use Design Space to create some home decor items.  Once I figured out that I could use a basic box shape from the CTMH Artiste cartridge and weld some Halloween images from the CTMH Artbooking cartridge I couldn't stop creating these cute votive holders!  The first picture was taken with the flickering battery operated votive candles in the dark.

Here is what they look like in daylight:

     Eggplant CS
     Black CS
     Colonial White CS
     Sunset CS
     Slate CS
     Black Ink
     Pastel Vellum (retired)
     Vellum (retired)
     Black Ink
     Black marker to color the bat
Other products
    Recollection Shimmer White Gold CS (moon)
    Plastic wrap (to create "texture" around the skull and crossbones image

I'm also entering this Halloween project into the following challenges:
     Friday Mashup--Halloween theme
     Heart2Heart--Use a Cricut cut
     Bitten by the Bug--use a bat on your project

Would you like to have these Design Space cutting files?  If so, just leave me a comment with your email address and I will be happy to send it to you.

Head on over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog to check out what the rest of the fabulous Design Team has to share with you.  We hope that you will be able to play along with our challenge and join in on the fun.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
