Batty for You

Today's card is a Halloween card for my granddaughter and features the colors from the Curtain Call - Going Batty Inspiration Challenge.

My seven year old granddaughter is crazy about the Hotel Transylvania movies. I've had to watch the first one more times than I care to because of that obsession. So of course vampires and bats are perfect for her Halloween card this year. I stamped the cute little vampire from the My Creative Time Fangtastic Day mini set and then fussy cut out (totally forgetting that there was a matching die). I then cut the bats from patterned paper using a die from the Paper Smooches Halloween Icons set. I cut a circle out from the top cardstock layer and craft foam with a Lil Inker Designs Stitched Mat and then backed the circle with yellow cardstock that was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I sandwiched the vampire between the top and craft foam layer using foam tape behind his head for stability and then added the bats inside the circle. After stamping the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Spooky Sentiments directly onto the top layer, I attached the piece onto a black card base and added a trio of buttons.

Products: My Creative Time stamp, Reverse Confetti stamp, Doodlebug dp, Bazzill cs, PTI cs and buttons,  Cuttlebug embossing folder, Paper Smooches die,  Lil Inker Designs die, Copic Markers
