Trick or Treat?

Well, as far as I'm concerned, anytime Doodle Pantry is involved, it's a treat! I have no idea why, but I absolutely love making Halloween cards. Here is my first for the season.


For this card, I am using an older digital stamp set from Doodle Pantry called Bat Birdie. Isn't this upside down birdie adorable? I printed the image on white card stock and then colored it using Copic markers (bird body - YG17, YG23, YG25; beak & feet - YR16, YR23; branch - E31, E33, E35, E37; mask N3, N5, N7). The mask was then layered with Fantastic Glaze to make it shiny. The card is a 3-layer cut file from Silhouette's online store. I used orange, black and lime green card stock to cut this file. After the layers were glued together, I used orange and  black Stickles Glue along the edges. I finished the card with black bats from a punch by All Night Media. Here is a preview of what you get in this set.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Girls Challenge #27 - anything goes

  4. That is so cool and love those colors. I am a bit stumped as to what I really want to do for Halloween so keep inspiring me. For my church people they don't want me to use witches or ghosts, especially for those in the nursing home. I guess they figured ghosts might remind the elderly too much of their soon demise. LOL So usually I do pumpkins but this is sure cute!
