Mummy Easel Halloween card

Oh my goodness what a super fun and easy Halloween card to put together.  This is an SVG file from
oh my gosh he is so adorable!
So I cut the whole card base out of black and ran the front portion only through my cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.   I then took my lightest blue ink pad to rub all over it and give it a grunged look.  I used my crafters companion wood grain embossing folder for the fence ... running the pieces thru in either direction.    I then took my black puffy paint to add the nail spots in the fence.  Using my Martha Stewart punch I added the purple border of drips at the top of the card.   I also went around the bat with the light blue ink so that it could stand out from the background.
I absolutely love how this card looks once it standing up in the Easel position.   I printed the Happy Halloween sentiment from my computer using the font - Gypsy Curse.  I then cut out both of the label shapes from the file and used foam squares to pop that up to act as the stand for the easel.  I added a couple of more smaller black bats from the file to the label.  The purple plaid pattern paper is from an old DCWV The Fall stack.  
I stamped trick-or-treat from Craftin Desert Divas - Frightfully Cute Stamp set and the bat Stamp is from HOTP Halloween Small Stamp - Bats on a piece of white card stock and cut that out using one of my pierced rectangle dies.
