Cutest Halloween, Cute Halloween, Kid Friendly Halloween Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I found a fun video to follow to make this card. You can see the video here. I did not have all of the elements to make the card as in the video so I used what I had and made it work. You can't have everything. I know I can't. I don't have the room or the money to have it all! There is also a video at another site that will show you how to make the wobble.  It is in German but you don't need to understand the language to follow along. There's probably other videos on how to make the wobble technique, I've just never looked, I found this one and liked it.

There were no measurements in the video for the card, so here's how I made it. The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White and taped it to the inside of the card.

The Highland Heather layer is 4" x 5-1/4" (don't attach it to the card base yet).  On top of that are two different pieces of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Cute Halloween" 6" x 6" stack. The left piece was cut 5" x 2-1/2" and the other piece was cut 5" x 1-3/8".  Those pieces were glued or taped to the Highland Heather piece. I glued mine mostly because my glue was sitting out and my tape is making some odd loud noise when I use it and I wasn't in the mood to listen to that while I was working!  LOL

The ribbon was white and I colored it using my light Highland Heather Blends pen. I let it dry for a little bit before I taped it in place. While it was drying, I marked the back of my Highland Heather piece so I knew where the centers were for the ribbon to go across. I was surprised at how stuff coloring it made the ribbon.  I taped the ends to the back using my noisy tape and then I took some scotch tape and taped over them. I used the double sided tape because I needed it to stick in place so I could tape it down better with the scotch tape.

I didn't have the Stampin' Up! black glitter paper but I did have some other glitter paper so I used that. I cut it 2-1/2" x 4-1/2".  I marked the center and then I cut the bottom into an arrow.  I glued this piece on top of the card so the point was in the center of the space between the two pieces of DSP.

I also didn't have the cute stitched tag dies so I got out my "Ornate Frames" dies and found one that would accommodate the words. This one worked nicely and I cut it from a scrap piece of Highland Heather.  Fortunately I had a scrap piece but it could have been cut from the left side of the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Highland Heather before the DSP and ribbon were added.  After die cutting the piece, I stamped the words. I did set the piece up in my Stamperatus and stamped them using black Memento ink. I did have to stamp it twice to get it nice and dark. This is why I like to use the Stamparatus for most of my stamping. It has spoiled me. I set this piece in place using Dimensionals. I often wonder how well they stick to glitter.  I guess we'll find out.

The bat was fussy cut from a piece of the DSP in the stack. He's SO darn cute!!!  Then I made the wobble apparatus and put it on the back of the bat and then set the bat in place on the Highland Heather rectangle piece.

The original card used some cute stars on the card. I didn't have those stars but I did have some purple sequins. I set the one on the ribbon in place using a glue dot but the other two I used mono glue to hold them in place. That glue is fabulous and holds nicely to the glitter paper.  And my card was done.  I think it's adorable. That's why I had to make it when I saw it on the internet.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see this cute bat card,
