Bat Slider Halloween Card

CBK-#1 Today I have an interactive card that has bats flying in on the cute Halloween scene. I can't help using the Boo Crew critters yet again, they are so adorable.

Briefly

  1. I die cut an A2 panel into 2 pieces: a frame and a smaller rectangular panel.  I stamped the smaller rectangular panel with the Haunted House stamp set, made a mask, and then ink blended with wilted violet distress oxide ink.
  2. I die cut 2 grass panels, some clouds and stamped & die cut the critters from the Boo Crew stamp set.  I copic colored the Haunted House and used soft grays to color the critters.
  3. I cut a series of notches into 2 small rectangular pieces and adhered them to the small panel containing the Haunted House.  Using some Stretch Magic jewelry cord, I adhered the end piece of the cord to the back of the panel, threaded 2 bats (2 bat sequins adhered to a bead) on each path and then threaded it through another notch and created another path for 2 bats to move up and down.  This creates a way for each bat to move up and down.
  4. Finally I adhered the small inner panel to the frame with several pieces of double sided foam tape and adhered all the die cut pieces prior to adhering to an A2 card base.
