Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This weeks idea is an overlay with the Bat die from Memory Box

Here is my finished card.

Close up up bat die cut

Inside of the card.

What I used

Stamp- Sentiment-Hero Arts
Die - Swirly Bat Cutout - Poppystamps (1247)
Inside Boo 31 - Alterations, Sizzix, Tim Holtz
Black and White Glitter Paper - Docrafts
Bat Designer Paper - Pebbles
White card base 5x7 inches
Black Glitter paper mat 43/4 x 63/4 inches
Baker's twine - Black and White
White stitched black ribbon
4 faceted self stick black dots

How I made it

I cut a 5x 2 3/4* inch of white and black glittered card stock.
Centered the bat die on them and cut them out.  Be careful
to save all the pieces.
Using a piece of copy paper, cut two pieces slightly smaller
than the pieces you cute the bat out of and attach to the back
with sticky tape.  Now, in the black bat cutout, fill the
spaces with the white glitter pieces.  Set the white cutout
and the black pieces aside for another card.
Because you have the sticky tape on the copy paper you attached 
on the bat cutout, the pieces will stick and your overlayed bat
is created.
I attached this to the middle of my card using a glue gun only
 on the edges and beveled it slightly. 
 If you want to do this, cut your strip 5 1/8x2 3/4* inches. 
Otherwise, just adhere to the middle of the card.

Fun card for the Holloween season!  The bat can also be used just as a cutout
with a different color paper behind it.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.......
