Washi Tape Halloween Card

I am inspired so much by cards that I see on Pinterest.  I was inspired to make this card after seeing this one.  Of course, I don't have any Halloween washi tape, but I had these colors of regular washi tape, so I ran with the idea.
I used taupe embroidery floss to wrap around the card front and added the bat from the What's Brewin' set at SVG Attic.  I cut it out three times at 1.5", glued them all together so it would be more like chipboard.  Then I added a few highlights with a white gel pen and covered it with glossy accents.  Isn't he the perfect finishing touch to the card?
If you are stumped with what to make for Halloween, check out SVG Attic's Halloween section.  I am sure you will be inspired by something there!  Plus their files are 50% off for a limited time, so it is the perfect time to pick some up.  This is their newest kit, Ghoulish Goody Bags and Boxes.
