Punch Art Halloween Card!

Hello Bleeps (Blog Peeps!)
I made this card today for the challenge over at Operation Write Home. We were to to make a card using a die cut or punch, ribbon and heat or dry embossing. So, on my card I used several of my Stampin' Up! punches, ribbon and I used a embossing folder for the background! I have seen some of the punch art for these characters around lately. But, I pretty much cased this card from another SU! demo named Kara Schwab.....but I don't have her blog info,sorry! I saw her card uploaded on Stampin' Connection.....a place for demos to share their projects. Well, I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!! ;)

Recipe for card:

  • Punches used: Large Oval,2 step Owl,3/4" Circle,2 step Bird,1 3/8" Circle
  • Card stocks: Old Olive,Not Quite Navy,Elegant Eggplant,Pumpkin Pie,BB,Daffodil Delight and WW
  • White Gel Pen
  • Close to Cocoa and BB Inks
  • Ribbon from Stash
  • Square Lattice Embossing Folder
  • Wave Scissors
  • Tiny Tags Stamp Set

What an adorable card! Love the textured's gorgeous! The inked edges really make everything stand out & add dimension. Your highlights add so much character to the bat. Another winner!

Another note about Chelsey. She was diagnosed with gestational diabetes on top of all of the other problems. She's taking it good; says that having a larger baby will help because he will be delivered early anyway. Thanks for all of your prayers & please continue to keep her in your prayers.

Aww I love it Holley..I like the idea of making the owl a bat! Lainey turned him upside down and made a monster out of him for one of her cards. Great card!
