Halloween Bat

Another Halloween card for the grandkids. 

As with yesterday's card, I used the owl punch from Stampin' Up! for this card. My friend Bonnie saw this card on Pinterest and wanted to recreate it. I thought it was cute, too, and made this card. The bat is the owl punch. The wings are a long oval Nestability cut in half and then cut with a circle punch. The branch is also an SU! punch. I sponged white ink lightly on all of the edges. I added googlie eyes and mounted the bat on foam squares. I punched the moon with a circle punch and sponged orange ink around the edges. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I used an orange marker to color it. For the background, I used a Paper Studio embossing folder, brayered white ink on it, and then used it on a piece of black cardstock. I used orange cardstock for the matting.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Very cool "bat card"!!! Very versatile punch! Thanks for telling how you did the wings. The moon is great with the added sponged orange around the edges.

Oh, for heaven's sake! I read "punch" yesterday and totally read it as "ghost punch". Now I see it is the owl punch. How clever! The bat wings look just like bat wings, too! What a cute card, Lynette!
