Bats, Cat and Skull Season

Here we go again with the Natures Skeleton background stamp.  I might be a bit partial to it, but man it looks cool on this card don’t you think?  Combined with the awesome Slimline card-base and some fun stamps makes this card a winner.

I have a soft spot for skulls (my dark side),  so I couldn’t wait to use this one decorated with a black candle, along with the fun black cat silhouette.  After some coloring and die cutting my pieces are ready to go.  A little planning was necessary for this card.

Creating the Card:

The first thing I did was die-cut the front of the card using the Slimline Marquis die as this helped with the placement of the stamped Natures Skeleton of which I stamped in black.  This layer was popped up on a black card-base so that it gave it a nice frame.  Next was to take the Slimline and to die cut the images to fit the open areas of the card.  I chose the left and right openings to give the appearance the object were facing each other which helps draw the eye to the center of the card.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment and added bats from the Dracula Going Batty die set.
