(Sizzix Eclips) Haunted House

  • Sizzix Eclips Machine
  • Holiday cartridge
  • Pattern Paper: (House) Brenda Walton and ( Card Front) Recollection Halloween Paper
  • Cardstock: Yellow, Black, Purple and Brown
  • Cuttle Bug Embossing folder: Distressed Stripes
  • Card Size: 5.5 by 4.25
The house was cut at 4 inches. I used the blackout function for the yellow cardstock to look like lights. The pattern paper house was the regular cut at 4 inches. All the windows, door, steps and roof were cut using the pieces function button also at 4 inches.
The tree was cut at 4.5 inches at regular cut.
I cut a circle out for the moon in yellow card stock.
The bats were cut at 1/2 inch.
I ran the roof, steps and door through my big shot using the distressed stripes cuttlebug folder. I used pop-dots behind the roof and steps to give dimension.
I glued down the moon first, next the tree and then the house. I attached the bats to different parts of the card. Some in front of the moon and some on the house.
One of the best features about Sizzix Eclips is the laser preview. I had a small piece of black paper and I wanted to make sure the bats would fit so I put the size in and hit laser preview and they all fit.  I use that function alot and I don't waste paper anymore.
