I wanted more cards to send out for Halloween (although maybe they will get there late or last minute!) so I went on a Halloween cardmaking blitz the other day and out came this Halloween Night Washi Tape Halloween Card. I wanted to use some of my Halloween Night Specialty Washi Tape before the holiday was over so this is how I used it on this card! Washi tape is so fun for some reason! And if you don’t get it placed right, you can peel it off and try again. Just tear off the ends, no need for scissors.
The card base is Pumpkin Pie with a Whisper White cardstock layer. I applied the washi tape without even knowing how else I was going to decorate the card! I decided to use the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and stamped the moon, the witch, the bats and the greeting. I placed both the bats on one acrylic block so I could stamp them both at the same time. I think I got one bat upside down! But maybe they fly that direction sometimes!
If you ever want to see bats fly at dusk, go to Austin, Texas to the Congress Avenue Bridge. It’s a tourist attraction! There are “seasons” for getting the best viewing of the bats. I think we also have a big bat colony here in Houston under a certain bridge, the Waugh Bridge, but I haven’t visited that yet!
I colored in the moon a little bit with two Stampin’ Write markers and then added a couple Halloween Night Enamel Dots. All of the enamel dots Stampin’ Up! carries are really fun to use! They add just a bit of color and embellishment to your card and are FLAT so they mail easily!
Don’t put away that Halloween Night Washi Tape after Halloween because you can still use all of it except for the black with the silver bats for any time – and if no one notices the bat pattern, I guess you could use that as well! Maybe it would be good to use on cards for gardeners or outdoors people!
You still have time to make and mail or hand out Halloween cards and treats to your family and friends, so go stamp something and mail it! I have some cute Halloween stamps so that is an incentive to get these cards in the mail! Send someone some Happy Mail for Halloween!
