A Fancy Fold Card With A Halloween Twist

♥ this Halloween card, that can also be adapted to any theme.
I used the Black Embossing Powder to really make my stamping stand out.
Did you notice the {dangling in the centre of card} flattened Beer Bottle Top/Soda Pop Top? ... Just run it through your Big Shot/Cuttlebug (in other words squash it!)and you can add pictures to the insert.
On this occasion I have used my Crop-A-Dile to create a hole and threaded some ribbon through and tied it off on the card.
In the past I have made Earrings, Necklaces and Key Rings using Bottle Tops - ♥ em!
Did you see the Ghost? This is made using the Owl Builder Punch, but upside down and adding some googly eyes!
And the head of the Tombstone is made with the end of one of the Labels Collection Framelits - so cute, and this technique can also be used for making a Tag too. 






The Bat is made by using the "Elegant Butterfly" Punch {picture 1) and then re-punching to clip the lower wings off!
You can make a smaller Bat by using the "Bitty Butterfly" Punch {picture 2}.
I found this xtra cute idea on Pinterest and I have case'd this idea and Tutorial from Kimberly Morris, image source and Blog details can be found here
