Cauldron Bubble, Toil & Trouble, September 2018 Paper Pumpkin, Halloween Card

I think the "Polaroid" technique is a very fun one to play with.  You can find the instructions and measurements for it here.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the starred "Toil & Trouble" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I was going to add a layer of Crushed curry (4-1/8" x 5-3/8") behind the DSP but I decided to omit it.  

I cut the Polaroid piece using Crushed Curry card stock. I cut a 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" piece of Very Vanilla card stock to go behind the Polaroid piece.  

I die cut a spider web from the "Cauldron" Framelits using Basic Black card stock.  I clued the two edges of the web to the edges of the Polaroid frame.  

I lined up the Very Vanilla piece and tape it in place on the DSP.  I added Dimensionals to the frame and set it in place. 
I die cut a cauldron from the "Toil & Trouble" card stock and taped it in place on the Very Vanilla piece. 

I punched a bat using Basic Black card stock and the "Spooky Bats" punch. I glued it in place. Glue was added to the center of the bat only.  I took a toothpick and added two glue eye dots and sprinkled some ultra find red glitter on it.  I think Halloween bats should have red eyes!  If you click on the photo you can see the eyes better.

The words are from the September 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit.  They were purple. I took a black Sharpie marker and colored them in.  They are a sticker, so I just had to remove it and set it in place.  And that was it, the card was done.

I thought it was a very fun card to make. I SO love that spider web. I think that is the main reason (other than the cat die) why I bought the set.  If you make 4 web pieces, you can make a complete web circle with them.  Fun!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
