Kit's a Treat! Smell Our feet! Thanks for Something Good to eat!

The title of this post---"Kit's a Treat! smell Our feet! Thanks for something good to eat!"--- is what this card says inside, because it was a thank you to our friend Kit who put together a Halloween Treat bundle for us. Just a simple Halloween card with the "Booglie Eyes" set. Something is bugging me about the design, too simple maybe...? But the details were fun to do. You can't see it very well in the photo, but I've used the square punch to punch out the window that the mummy is popping out of. He has a dimensional behind his head to make him 3-d and his hands are shaped to curl out a little. The bat also has a dimensional behind him and his wings, feet & ears are shaped to curl out. Couldn't leave Dracula out of the paper shaping; his cape collar and bottom have swoops. :0) You can glue little wee google eyes on these guys too (I haven't.)

They're all coloured in with water-colour pencil crayons then washed with water to make the colours richer. The "Happy Boo to You" is embossed with white craft ink & white embossing powder. The metal frame is from the dollar store attached with silver S.U. brads.. The card is "Basic Black" cardstock & the yellow squares are "Summer Sun" cardstock stamped with the "Weathered" background in "Only Orange ink."

There's also a black organza ribbon a "Horizontal slot" punched through both layer of the card. I had originally tied it together. (You can slide a candy bar in there that way!) :0)

Have a Happy Halloween! :0)
