Bag of Bones, Them Bones, Halloween Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a Halloween card to share with you. It's pretty simple to make and I had a lot of fun making it. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Starry Sky card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Basic Black for the layer. Before taping it down I die cut the tombstone from the "Bag of Bones" bundle.

I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Them Bones" 12" x 12" package to measure 4" x 5-1/4".  I took the large tombstone die and die cut over the tombstone on the DSP. Then I took the smaller tombstone die and die cut the piece of DSP so I could make it fit on the Basic Black tombstone. I taped the DSP tombstone to the Basic Black one. Then I set that piece back in place on the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP. I turned it over and taped the Basic Black tombstone in place using scotch tape. Then I taped the piece to the top of the Basic Black piece.

I fussy cut a tiny skeleton from one of the sheets of DSP. I added two small Dimensionals to the back and I set it in place on the front of the card.

I die cut a cat and the bats using some scrap Basic Black card stock. 

The moon was cut using the 1-5/8" circle die from the "Circling Layers" set using Basic White cardstock. I set it on the card where I thought it should go and then I set the tombstone die on top so I could die cut a piece off of it so it looked like it was behind the large tombstone. 

The cat was set in place using a couple of small Dimensionals. I added a dot of glue on the bats that were already printed on the DSP and put the card stock ones in place. Plus I added a few more bats to the card. Don't forget the one on the moon!  

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was added to the inside and the card was done.

This was a very fun, quick, and easy card to make. I do like how it turned out. It's a bit different than what I had in my head but what ended up on paper was perfectly fine with me!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Halloween card,
