This is a tutorial for the bat easel card that is part of the Halloween Soiree kit at SVG Attic. The picture above also shows the coordinating envelope that will be in that kit. The card is also available in the Silhouette Store.
Here is a view of the different pieces that are included with the easel card. I cut the base, card front, upper decorative square, upper bat and upper Trick or Treat pieces out of black cardstock. The faux ribbon and background decorative square are shown in a orange print cardstock and the shadow bat and Trick or Treat pieces are cut from patterned green cardstock.
Start with the base piece and fold both of the score lines towards you.
Bend the cardstock at the inner score line so it creates a 5" square.
Add tape runner to the area just below the score line visible on the front.
Place the 5" square card front on top of the base, lining up all sides.
Open the card up and bend up the scalloped tabs that are cut in the base.
Place the card front behind the scallops. This is how the base of the card should look. Set the base aside for now to start on the decorative layers.
Layer the black decorative square on top of the orange square with tape runner.
Next layer to add is the green Trick or Treat shadow piece.
Then add the black Trick or Treat layer.
Now bring back the card base that is folded and adhere the decorative layers to the front.
Using liquid adhesive attach the faux ribbon piece towards the left side of the card front.
Next, layer the black bat layer on top of the green shadow.
I added foam squares to the back of the bat, for extra dimension, but you could also use liquid adhesive.
Add the bat to the top left corner of the card.
Add whatever embellishments you want and your bat easel card is finished!
