Halloween Bat Treat Cup with The Cutting Cafe

If you’re looking for my Eyelet Outlet post, click here or simply scroll down. 

Our challenge today with The Cutting Cafe is to use any one of the Halloween and Fall Treat Cup Cards.  There are four complete cards; witch’s legs, bat, candy corn and an acorn together with a box and sentiments for each card.  There’s always so much packed into these files!  I decided to work with the:

The pictures of the completed cards at the store looked awesome, but I was a bit intimidated at what I thought would be complicated construction.  I needn’t have worried though, as there’s a video provided which made assembly easy as 1-2-3.  I made the card and box base as well as the bat parts from Basic Black card stock.

As excited as I am to tell you more about the card, I’m over the moon about the new Custom Printed Ribbon now available at The Cutting Cafe Shop. I can think of so many possibilities for this ribbon and I bet you can, too!I made the card and box base as well as the bat parts from Basic Black card stock.

As you can see, I banded the gift box with the 5/8″ Orange Ribbon and made a banner for the top of my card as well.  I made a decision AFTER I took these pictures…ribbon this pretty needs some bling, so I’m going to go back and add some black rhinestones in between the printed greetings on the band and under the printing on the banner.  I made the card and box base as well as the bat parts from Basic Black card stock.

The card, box base, and the bat parts were cut from Basic Black card stock.  The patterned paper is from the digital Halloween Hooligans Kit from NitWit Collections.  As the paper has orange and purple in it, I added some Mike & Ike’s with matching colors.  I ate the pink and blue as they didn’t match…the things I do for my card making!

I coated the top of the bat with Wink of Stella.  Mistake!  Even though this is the clear Wink of Stella, it appeared splotchy when I applied it, so I coated it again…and again…and again to try to even things out.  It would have been better just to leave that bat alone!  The way the card is constructed, there’s a sliding panel on the back so you don’t have to destroy the card getting to the candy.

Here’s a closer look at the bat:

I’m really enjoying working with The Cutting Cafe files.  If you missed the other projects I made, some of my favorites are here, here and here.  Our next challenge is on the 21st.  I’d give you a little hint as to what it is, but I don’t know yet!  Maybe that’s why Regina didn’t tell me…she knows I can’t keep a secret.  😉
