Batty Without You


Not *exactly* a Halloween card, though the timing is fitting! This vampire cutie is from a Close to My Heart set called Creepy Creatures, which was easy to color up with Prismacolor pencils as most of the image stamped black. I used 2 sizes of Inverted Scalloped Circle dies from Spellbinders to cut a black mat and vellum layer for this little guy to rest on. On a whim, I checked the current sketch challenges and was thrilled to find something that I could make work at Sunday Stamps. I’ll be the first to admit I am not great at using sketches, but I think I nailed this one! I used a different set for my sentiment, Frightful Friends by MFT to make it the perfect card for my bestie! A little patterned paper and cardstock scraps from my stash, and this was done! I’m sad I didn’t have time to use the other images in this set before Halloween this year but I tend to work on holiday cards at odd times of year, so you may see this set again on the blog before New Year’s!

ETA 11/2/19: This card was selected by Sunday Stamps as a Top Cup!!! November 2019 for Batty Without You
