Hello my scrappy friends  Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner?!? Since my children are grown I don’t usually bother with Halloween, but I saw these adorable bats and I just had to do something with them.

So gather up your Scor-Pal, card stock &…….

Let’s Make a Card…..

boo 3

Let’s start with a Black card base measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Die cut a small oval (no, don’t throw this piece away, set it aside to use on another project). Cut a piece of yellow card stock just a bit smaller than the base card. Score this piece every 1/4 inch, then turn the card and score again every 1/4 inch.

You should end up with a grid pattern. Ink this section as desired with Peanut Brittle. Die cut with a bit larger oval die directly over the same spot where you die cut the black card base.

boo 4

Take a scrap of white card stock and lightly ink with Gray Flannel, attach to back of black base card opening. With foam adhesive, attach the yellow card stock to the black card base.

boo 5

Die cut flourish from black card stock, paint with Glossy Accents. Let dry. Attach to yellow card section as shown, add “tickets” and flowers.
Color and fussy cut two bats, attach to oval opening with foam adhesive. Add black “candi” dots to upper left side of card.

I hope you have a "Boo-tiful " day and Happy Halloween !!
