Creepy, Crawly Halloween

Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog is packed with so many fun new stamps and products!!  If you haven't seen it yet, you can browse it online here -- after you see the rest of the post, please! ;)  Anyway, a little while back, I created this card, which uses the new Halloween Bash stamp set, for a card swap with some other demonstrators:

To create the starburst background, I cut Modern Medley Designer Paper into triangles, layered into the starburst pattern on a piece of Very Vanilla, adhered the designer paper, then trimmed off the excess.  That piece is layered first onto a piece of Basic Black, and then another piece of Very Vanilla, and finally onto the Basic Black card base.  

I embossed the "Celebrate . . . " using a combination of Gold and Tangerine Tango embossing powders onto a piece of vellum, which I tore at the bottom, and attached to the card using a bit of Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape.  Here's a closer view of that:

Along the bottom of the card I attached pieces of vellum, on which I'd embossed the image with Versamark ink and black powder, then punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch:

I added a Tangerine Tango Candy Dot for a pop of color.

Inside the card, I used more of the Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape to attach a piece of Very Vanilla, which I'd also stamped with the bat and "Beware" image:

I also added the supply recipe for the card inside, again using a piece of the washi tape -- lovin' that stuff!!! 

Here's what's in the brew for this card:

Stamp Set:  Halloween Bash
Inks:  Versamark, Basic Black
Paper:  Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Vellum Card Stock, and Modern Medley Designer Series Paper
