Crafty Catz Challenge- Anything Goes #480
Classic Design Team Challenge- #10 October
I also wanted to make one more card to enter into the current Double D’s Challenge named “Silhouette.” I looked through my files and found a template for an Origami pop-up bat I used a few years ago… and decided to make a very special Halloween card for my hubby with it. (After spending 45 Halloweens together, he knows that I prefer cute cards. So… I think he’ll appreciate getting a creepy one this year!) You can find the template and a picture tutorial that walks through the 27 step Origami process HERE. I took a close up of the critters creepy face so that you can see that I even punched beady little eyes and taped a piece of red paper behind them. (I was once terrorized by a bat that flew into our home and circled the lamp next to me, whizzing past my screaming face several times. So… so it was kinda fun to literally punch this guy in the face. Twice!!) The sentiments are computer-generated. Am entering the card into a few other challenges including Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge (Orange, yellow and blue with a twist of terrifying!) and Outlawz Twisted Thursday (Twist=creepy!)

I decided to make a small gift bag to use as a table decoration. Plan to set it on a silver tray and set holly sprigs at the base. (I have silk holly, but might try to find some real sprigs at the local florist.) The background stamp, embossed with white pigment ink and embossing powder, is one that I removed from its wood base many years ago. (I think it might be from Biblical Impressions or maybe Judikins?) T ” is a freebie from Birdscards.com and the sparkly holly sticker is from a pack I recently picked up at Hobby Lobby.
