Halloween Pup Up Card

I've tried making one of the oh so popular pop up cards with some of my favorite Halloween stamps. I agree with Michelle (check out yesterday's post!) that the Bat Motel is super fun to work with. And it is PERFECT for a pop up card! But before reaching the Bat Motel, one needs to fight Mr Bones (You shake my bones is the full name). He is stamped with white ink and embossed with clear embossing powder to get a little transperant look.

Pop Up Cards are really fun since they look like lots of work, but are in fact really simple to make. There are tutorials all over blog land. You can find one on SCS here. Try it out if you haven't already!

I kept the inside kind of clean. The spider web with the oh so clever name "You need to dust" is clear embossed like Mr Bones. And the Moon stamp, Just Batty, is stamped, colored and cut out and adhered on the back of the card. I finished it with the Frightful Halloween stamp. That's about it. But sometimes, it can be really neat to keep it simple!

Thanks for stopping by!
