Oh my, it's that month again and you know what that means.
Yes, it's time for all those ghosts and gobblins that make Halloween
Spooktacular on October 31th. As you can probably tell I prefer
the not so scary things, just because I'm a scaredy cat. haha
This is the Pumpkin that my mom made years ago, gluing two pieces of
poster board together with Elmer's glue and then quickly cutting it out before
the glue dried. She traced the pumpkin face on and then painted in each part
to make this extra large ( 15" x 13") pumpkin that she put on her door each year.
I still have him and will display him proudly this month.
He has that special look that makes you just want to Smile for sure. lol
I even made a cutout card of him and she simply loved it.
Lots of memories!

First up is this really unique Halloween Bat pop out card. As you
can probably tell by now, I like lots of color and these little pumpkin
faces are no exception. I used green, yellow and orange pieces behind
the cutouts to create each delightful face. I found the perfect rainbow
ribbon to add a fun bow on top.
Yep, here's my Bat in all his glory!
What was that saying from Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman?
Here's looking at ya kid! hehe
When you open up this card, he pops out to greet you. I cut
him out in my Cricut Maker and used Faux pebbled leather
and paper. This is the first time using Cricut pebbled Faux
leather and it cut just like butter and it was also easy to glue.
Can you imagine your recipient's face when they open
this card and feel the bumpy leather. hehe
Makes him look Real. EEK!
A WOW card for sure.
Here's a close up picture of his wings and mouth. I added a large
red sequin to his eyes and also later added glitter to his teeth.
This is the back of the card that I embossed and cut the oval
a little smaller so it would have a black border. Oh, I found
the little Arsenic card in my Tim Holtz stash and thought
that would be a perfect touch to a surprise ending. hehe
You can stamp your sentiment or write a little note.
Here's the envelope to match with the pumpkin face.
Super wow card for all your Halloween guests or family and friend to
enjoy. Very easy to assemble with Bird's step by step video tutorial.
I think I'm going to send this to my daughter that mentioned they
saw a bat near their roof one time. Won't she be surprised when
she opens this one. hehe

I hope that I've inspired you to start your Halloween making
early and even be adventurous and try using Faux leather on
some of these incredible creations. I'm sure they will be a
Have a Great week!
