I Am Batty Over You!

I know I am not fond of REAL bats- but these paper and acetate bats from Creative Cuts and more really were fun to play with.
 I made a few designs usingacetate and black card stock BAT CARD. There are also a couple different sets available if you want to check out BAT CARD WITH FANGS or BAT CARD WITH FANGS AND EYES.
My first design was made with Black flocking- oh my that stuff is crazy-Have you worked with it? I would STRONGLY suggest using an embossing buddy if you are going to use acetate and flocking.
 My second project is a black cardstock and acetate bat put together- love how it stands up!
My third design is really my favorite. I used a sparkle silver card stock to accent the wings and make feet and Ears.
 I found a fun "recipe" on-line for Bat Wing Stew-The card is matted and slipped in the mouth.
 I added a little piece of velcro and attached a bow tied to hold the wings closed.
How about a view of the wings closed and the feet peeking out?
So, are you all done with your Halloween cards and crafts? Well, why don't you pop over and check out all the fun die cuts, cards, boxes available at Creative Cuts and More- it won't be spooky at all!
