The boys and I brainstormed and decided to make cards with ghosts and bats. I've been testing out a few ideas for Christmas and happened to have a lot of "stuff" out on our kitchen counter. AKA, I make a mess and don't always clean it up! The white "abominable snowman" fur grabbed their attention and we agreed that furry white ghosts were in order!

I love the 3-dimensional effect. They're really simple but not plain at all.
Black 3-D Paper BatsThe boys also liked the bats that I used in our entry, so they used the same template to create their own bat cards.
instructions: To give the bats an iridescent shimmer, the kids colored the bats with metallic gel sticks (aka gelatos) and blended it in with a baby wipe. When the paper dried, they then added details using metallic pencils and puffy paint.
