Mo Mannings Bat Cat Halloween Card

Well guess what we are back to the Halloween cards, Ive still got two more to make and then I think Im done, or at least I believe so. Todays card has been created with yet another of the gorgeous Mo Mannings Digi Stamps this one is called Bat Cat, and I have one grandson whos absolutely dotty on cats so thought this would be ideal for him.

Ive printed out the stamp and coloured it with my copic pens, after which Ive used my rotatrim to cut it out, then Ive mounted it onto a piece of black card. The sentiment is one Hero Arts Clear Stamp collection, and Ive stamped this onto a piece of white card and have then cut it out and mounted this also onto a piece of black card. I should have said that I did use a chalk inkpad to distress around the edge of both of these mounts before sticking them to the black card.

The base card is 8"x 8" white card and for the first layer Ive used a piece of orange card, and again Ive used the same Halloween designs from Donna's Bearly Mine Halloween Designs from her latest Extreme Collection of Cds. This first paper is one with a bat pattern on, then on top of this Ive used a second paper, this one has a patchwork of black, green, orange and blue squares that have a look of being sewn together, Ive used my EK Success Bat border punch of the two edges and stuck this on top of the first mount. To the centre of this I have stuck a piece of orange card which was first put through my cuttlebug machine with a embossing folder which had the Halloween design on.

On top of this I have mounted my digi stamp, which I firstly positioned some fantasy fibre's under it, to look like spiders web. The sentiment was then stuck to the bottom of the card on the right. To finish of I have stuck some buttons on the orange card of spook, cat and paws.
