Bats About You

Good morning,, welcome long weekend!  Most probably have Monday off making the weekend an extra day.  Well in my case it's a really long weekend.  My hubby is taking me to Las Vegas Sunday and we will come home Tuesday.  I am excited for some relaxing by the pool.  For my share today I have another Halloween card for you.  I seem stuck on that theme right now.  I normally need to have a sketch to work from, but today I decided I wanted to use two embossing folders on the same paper and this is what I came up with.  For my double embossing I used the Stylish Stripes from the Holiday mini found on page 22 (#132174) and the Designer Frames in the regular catalog on page 190 (#123130).  I used the little rectangle.  I then made a 'frame' by layering 3 pieces of the chipboard that comes with the dsp paper.  My first frame I made the exact size of my Pumpkin Pie card stock.  I then embossed it with the rectangle frame and with my exacto knife I cut just outside of the frame, leaving a rectangle in the middle of my first frame.  A little adhesive on the frame and then stuck to the folder and passed through the big shot, using only one cutting mat and all tabs closed on the platform.  I like the look of this technique but never remember to use it.  Phew....on to the rest of the card.
My other supplies include:
Very Vanilla card stock - pg 145 #101650
Pumpkin Pie card stock - pg 143 #105117
