Fang-tastic Easel

Happy Friday!!
It's time for a new 3-D Cardz TV challenge.
Our theme is "Fun Folds.”  
Challenge - Create a 3-D Card for Halloween
When coming up with an idea for this inspiration came from my stash of Tim Holtz's Distress Glitter.  Crazy huh?   I bought the glitter last fall with the intent of using it on Halloween cards...well, that never happened.  Of course!  So I thought this year I would use it.   I don't like using dry glitter on seems to come off and I get it EVERYWHERE in the process.  So I got to thinking...what about a shaker card?   Then I saw the Cardz TV stamps set sentiment "You're Fang-tastic" and Voila! An idea!

I used Peachy Keen Stamps SOTM set and coordinating SVG and my Silhouette Cameo to create the base of the card and shaker bat. 

The base of my easel card is an 11" x 4.25" piece of white Papertrey Ink carstock...scored at 2.5" and 5.5". 

The face is stamped on the outside of the transparency with Ranger Archival Ink. 
To give the bat a Halloween tone, I used Stormy Sky Distress Glitter.
The veneer bat is coated with the same glitter. 
I am so happy with just how well this card turned out.  So cute!!
