To the Moon and Bat
by Michele K. Henderson
The batty season is on it's way as talk of fall and all things spooky are right around the corner! Today I have a colorful spooky card that might be a little more fun than fearful!
I started with a clean purple background against a black card stock base, and added a big, bright moon from the Stitched Circle Layers from Memory Box Open Studio. Then I added the brand new Trim Tree and the Batty Triptych from Poppystamps' newest release!
This little pictorial illustrates a quick tip I use to make my cards pop. I cut the Batty Triptych in two colors, black and grey, and I wanted the entire square, including the thin frame edge to pop off the paper with a foam pop dot. So I cut a third square, in purple from the Shaker Square Frames, and glued the black and grey bat pieces to the purple square. Then I mounted the bat squares in a topsy turvy pattern, and added the Trim Tree and a few spooky sequins. It's an easy card to create with just a few dies!
Thanks for joining us here at Poppystamps today! Check out our current challenge, Shake It Up, and show us your spooky selves!
It is such a cool idea to use the triptych elements as tiles!I have to give it a go! Love the card!
Morning Michele, A 'quirky' spooky card haha, I love the batty triptych and I adore the stitched circle layers dies. A lovely card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
Tee, hee, hee. This is just fabulous, including your punny title. This layout is just so innovative. I would have wanted to cut the bats out of the squares, and that would have made the card a yawner. Thanks for opening up my world.
Fabulous card...I love Halloween and this is so perfect!
Super cute Michele! I like the tree flowing off the edge!!
