Boo to You!

Bats and Ghosts and Pumpkins, Oh My!

Ro here again, and I have to say...this Transylvania collection from The Robin's Nest has me in the Halloween spirit.  The glitter and graphics on the papers are awesome!  I came up with another fancy folded card today.  This one is a shutter-fold card.  You can find the basic layout for it here.  It was so much fun to make because I got to use a big variety of cardstock and elements. Oh boy!!! Here is my card:

I started out with my basic pieces and laid them out on the card base.

I then inked the edges of all the pieces so the white edges wouldn't show.

After all the pieces were adhered to the base, I started adding the embellishments.

Love the gauze ghost. And those Diamond Dew Drops make great eyes!
I cut out some webs from the Spiderweb cardstock and added some more Dew Drops.
A dangling bat with some Connie's Crystals adds some real dimension.
I added a purple crystal to the purple bat side...
...and a black one to the black bat side.
Thanks to Connie's Crystals for partnering up with The Robin's Nest this month.  They have some wonderful crystals on their site.  I urge you to check them out!

So one more peek at my card before I go....

Hope you all are enjoying creating your Halloween projects!  I know I am!  

Til next time, keepin' it crafty!

Fabulous card. Love those shutter cards. They give you so much room to play with your different papers and use up some of your scraps. Love your embellishments, too.
