The Creative Pointe's "Coffin Card" SVG makes a classic Halloween card a snap. Of course, I couldn't just do a plain and simple pine coffin...no way...I embellished my little heart out for extra eerie fun! First off, my coffin had to have some color and pattern. I love the way the purple patterned paper adds a graffiti feel. And strips of Tim Holtz "Commute" tissue tape look a bit mummy-ish, don't you think?
The bat was cut from skeleton patterned paper, doused in Black Soot Distress Stain, highlighted with white gel pen, and given glowing eyes with Lime Green Stickles. He's mounted with foam tape because...he's alive...ALIVE!!
To continue the cemetery theme, I stamped wrought iron fencing along the bottom in black ink and highlighted in white gel pen.
Creeeaakk....open if you dare!!! Bwah, ha, haa!! oh...sorry...got a little caught up there. J
