Hi, everyone! Do you love adding texture to your handmade Halloween cards? Teri here to show you how to create this Fangtastic Day Bats Card that mixes flock with 3D Foam Circles White Mix and E-Z Runner® Stars to create a fun textured look!
Create the Card Base and Add Stars, Circles and Flock
Begin by creating a card base from cardstock. Apply ink directly onto the card. For a more unique look, apply the ink to it through a stencil. Set your card aside. Stamp, color and die-cut some bats to place on your card. Apply 3D Foam to the backs of the bats. I really like using the 3D Foam Strips for this step because it’s thin and long. You can easily cut it down so your bats are well covered with foam!
Apply stars onto your inked background. Place flock on top of them. Use your fingers to burnish the flock down by pushing and rubbing it firmly onto the stars.
Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock. Place it on your card. Temporarily set your bats on your card so you know where it will look best.
Take several 3D Foam Circles White Mix and add them to the top and bottom of your card. Consider cutting of the circles in half for a cool look. Once again, apply flock to them. Tap off any excess flock! To make sure your flock is fully adhered to your circles, rub a little bit of wax paper over the circles.
Finish the Card and Use It to Send a Note or a Gift Card
Complete your card by mounting the bats onto it.
Use this card to send a message! You can also use it to send a gift card by adhering a Keepsake Envelope inside it to hold it!
