Batty For You

A cute take on a Halloween card I received as a trade from a fellow demo, Stephanie. The bat is made using the Coluzzle circle cutter and punches.

Using the Coluzzle, I cut a circle out of Basic Black cardstock and trimmed a little off of one side, to give it a straight edge. I punched a half circle at the rounded top with the 1 3/4" circle punch. Next, starting from one of the bottom corners, I used my 1" circle punch to create the scallops in the wings. I punched it once at the corner and then again towards the middle, and repeating this starting from the opposite corner. The body is made with the Large Oval Punch and the 1" circle punch. The ears are from one of the flowers in the Boho Blossoms punch. The final touch was the googly eyes.

The card was made from Basic Gray cardstock and I randomly stamped the circles (from the Tasty Sweet set) with Basic Gray ink. I tore the bottom edge of the card and added a strip of Kiwi Kiss designer paper, where I stamped Happy Halloween in Basic Black ink. I also added a piece of Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain ribbon.

I cut another circle with the Coluzzle out of Whisper White cardstock and sponged the edges with Basic Gray ink to create the moon behind the bat. I layered the bat and moon on to the card using Dimensionals.

Thanks again to Stephanie for the adorable bat idea! I love anything I can make with punches. Thanks for looking and Happy Halloween!
