Laura's Bat Card


Last year my friend Laura sent me this adorable bat card. She was kind enough to share with me the project details. I wanted to repost the project so you would have plenty of time to make your own and send by halloween.


Materials:

Card base. Purple, black, or dark grey works well

Holographic and  silver embossing powder

Versamark embossing ink

Bat diecut from blackcardstock I used one precut from Martha Stewart, but it would be easy to cut one yourself or use your own die.

2 tiny gems for the bats eyes

Large swirl stamp for background, any kind of spiral, flourish, or even stars would work.

Circle diecut from gray cardstock I used 2.5 inch
 or smaller 1.5"

To Make:

Stamp the background flourish design on the card with Versamark, sprinkle on the holographic powder, and heat to emboss.

For the moon, cover the whole surface of the circle diecut with Versamark by pressing onto the stamp pad. Lay flat and apply silver embossing powder. Using a stiff brush and pounce the powder to break up , you dont want an even coating. This gives the moon some texture. Heat to emboss.

Apply the gem eyes to the bat.  

Attach moon to card with tape. 

Attach bat with dimensional foam dots. 

Stamp sentiment inside if desired....DONE!




XOX,
