You’ve got all kinds of time to get this cute and simple Halloween card made for this special day. These little bats are sure to add a touch of glee to anyone’s mailbox! Think how much they’re going to love the fact you made it for them!
What a fun trio of bats to wish a Happy Halloween!
This card goes together so quickly once you fussy cut your little bats.
Yes, fussy cutting! Some paper crafter love it!
And some paper crafters don’t 😋!
I fall firmly into the “DO” camp! Some might call me a little “batty”, but I think it’s almost a little therapeutic to sit on the couch and trim some of our DSP.
What’s not to love about fully-coloured images already done for you! Easy peasey! No stamping required!
You can see another slimline card idea here using this exact technique!
