Halloween House for FireCrackers

I hope you arrived here from Shelly's Blog, welcome!
The theme of this FireCracker Designs by Pamela Blog Hop is:
No Place like Home! 
Well this time of the year you see all the halloween decoration,
so I made this Halloween Home.
I started making the house with my Cricut. I used ZooBalloo for this and cut the house and the roof.
The house I ran through the cuttlebug with the Tim Holtz Sizzix wall die and added some vintage dissress ink. For the roof I used a Cuttlebug die with firebrick desstress ink.
Behind the window I glued some yellow paper.
I glued the house to black cardstock (which I folded double) and cut with aquarter inch around it.
Now I have a front and a back for the card.
The cat you see in front of the fence (Martha Steward punch) is a digital stamp by FireCracker and can be found HERE.
For the inside of the card, I cut a strip of  10,5 inch x 2,75 inch and folded it in 4 parts, harmonicawize.
On each part glue some scrap paper in Halloween theme. On top of the paper there are some fun figures that are digital stamps. You find the witch HERE, the mummy HERE and Frankie is HERE.
I have colored them with copic markers.

The end result is here below. The strip of paper is glued to the front and the back of the card.
This could be a invitation to a Halloween Party.
The spiders you see around the house I drew by hand.
After Halloween I will do some cleaning!

The artist of these digi stamps is Boni and she has her own BLOG and more fun digital stamps..

And thanks Boni for the honour to be on your blog!

This is the most brilliant house card I have ever seen! You make me want the cricut, the texture fades, and the digis! When I looked at the first picture, I didn't understand what was holding it together, but after I saw the accordion inside - wow!
