Cats, Bats & Ghosts ....Oh My!

Hello friends! I have another Halloween card to share with you. I love the way this one turned out even though I had initially started out to make a Lawn Fawn Flippy Flappy card.

Once I finished inking my background, there was no way I was going to cut that down to 3.75" x 5". I knew the Peekaboo Pop Up die would be just perfect!

For the background I used the Night Time Sky Stencil and Ranger Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade for the moon and Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the sky.

I wanted a black background for my little scene, so I went to my stash and found my Little Picket Fence Border die. I cut that our of black cardstock cut at 3" x 6".

When I cut out my Peekaboo Pop Up base, the fold on the left side of my card has a small spot where the paper showed through the inked background. I knew I could use a little bat to cover that spot, but it meant that I would have to flip my border so that the highest part of my border would be on the right side of my card and that would be the side that the pop up mechanism would be.

Once I played around with the fence and the scene I was trying to create, I decided I wanted a silhouette of tree on the right side for one of my bats to hand off of. The only thing that would work in my stash was cut the tree off the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape.

For the scene on the card I used Copic Markers to color in the pieces from: Lawn Fawn's;

Once I put everything together, I added the "Happy Halloween" sentiment from Spooktacular.

This was a really fun card to make. I would really recommend that you watch the intro video for this card to help with the placement of the mechanism. I had to play it quite a few times to make sure my little ghost would pop up where I wanted him to.

I hope you might find something helpful in this post!
