The Robin's Nest - Halloween

Bats and Ghosts and Pumpkins, Oh My!

I have to say...this Transylvania collection from The Robin's Nest has me in the Halloween spirit.  The glitter and graphics on the papers are awesome!  I came up with another fancy folded card today.  This one is a shutter-fold card.  You can find the basic layout for it here.  It was so much fun to make because I got to use a big variety of cardstock and elements. Oh boy!!! Here is my card:

I started out with my basic pieces and laid them out on the card base.

I then inked the edges of all the pieces so the white edges wouldn't show.

After all the pieces were adhered to the base, I started adding the embellishments.

Love the gauze ghost. And those Diamond Dew Drops make great eyes!
I cut out some webs from the Spiderweb cardstock and added some more Dew Drops.
A dangling bat with some Connie's Crystals adds some real dimension.
I added a purple crystal to the purple bat side...
...and a black one to the black bat side.
Thanks to Connie's Crystals for partnering up with The Robin's Nest this month.  They have some wonderful crystals on their site.  I urge you to check them out!

So one more peek at my card before I go....

Hope you all are enjoying creating your Halloween projects!  I know I am!  

Til next time, keepin' it crafty!
