Creepy bats

Hey Crafters,

this is my second post today, I have another card I created crafting with my daughters yesterday. Seems we're really in the Halloween mood now.

First I created a black card base and a vellum panel that I embossed with a spider's web. I really like this embossing folder, especially on vellum. I glued the panel to the card front, but only in the middle were the adhesive would be hidden.
Then I stamped the envelope and a strip of cardstock repeatedly with a chevron backdrop stamp from Lawn Fawn. I colored in a pattern with orange, dark grey and lilac alcohol markers and cut out the edges of the panel. Then I adhered it to the card with foam dots.

Having practically no Halloween stamps I decided to hand cut two bats from black cardstock, which turned out surprisingly well. I added a few details with a white gel pen to emphasize the typical shape of the wings and used some more foam dots to adhere them down.

As the card  was already pretty busy, I decided against a sentiment. 

Only 5 days 'til Halloween!
Happy haunting
