Heads will Roll Headless Horseman Card

Hi everyone!

So today's card will make you want to hang on to your head!! I am so in love with this Happy Hauntings cartridge! The card base is black and measures 4 1/4" by 5 1/2".Then I laid down an orange mat measuring at 4" by 5 1/4" and this brown distressed polka-dotted paper on top I found in a Halloween paper pack and that measures at 3 3/4" by 5". I can't remember what I cut the headless horseman at but I want to say it was 3 or 4"? I did trim the grass on the sides so it fit inside the polka-dot mat. I'm so in love with dimensional cards and so I popped him up on foam tape. Lots of foam tape and I had to cut it very small and thin so that it would fit and not show through under the grass and the other small parts. I made the sentiment myself by stamping individual letters down and tried to make it look like they were rolling/falling! I then stamped around the shape and the shape is from the headless horseman image that is inside a frame. I just stopped the cricut from cutting once it cut this inside part of the frame.
 The inside I just added another orange mat at the same dimensions as the orange mat above and finished the sentiment on the front so that the sentiment says "Heads will roll October 31st" and then stamped "Happy Haunting" below that. The inside stamps are also My Craft Spot's from her Happy Haunting stamp set.

Thanks for taking a look and have a happy Tuesday!!
