2017 Halloween Thank You Card's for Teachers Design #1

This is the First of Five designs for my 2017 Halloween Thank You Card's for my girls Teachers.

I make 12 3X3 cards in five designs, five for each Teacher and two to have in my stash.

These cards can be used by the Teachers how ever they choose, fellow Teachers, parents or family that Volunteer, or even their own family and friends.

It's just a simple way to say Thank You for all their awsome work with the kiddos during the school year.

 I am using some Master's Touch water color paper.

I stamped the images first to give the ink some time to dry.

Leaving enough space so I can use the cordinating dies to cut them out.
 I cut some pattern paper and some light blue 3X3 card bases.

I stamped the out side and in side of the cards.
 I inked the edges to remove the white core that was left after I cut the pattern paper.
 I water colored the bats and let them dry.

I adhered the pattern paper to the card bases while the bats were drying.
 I used a White Gel pen to bring out the cute little fangs on the bats.
 I used up some left over light blue card stock and cut a half inch strip to add my sentiment.

I used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere them.

I cut the sentiment apart to get what I wanted.  Its ok they did not scream and I can use them as they were intended if I would like to.
 After I cut them out I added a dimensional to the back of the bats.
 Using some tweezers to add eyes to the bats.
 Using some light grey ink to stamp the image on the back of the envelopes.
All done, cute but not scary.

Close up.

With the envelope.
