Tri-fold Card with Bat Signal over Gotham City; Using some leftovers from Paper Pumpkin September 2018

“But as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible.” – Batman

Did you get the September Paper Pumpkin kit??

I brought mine to the home of a new crafty friend, and we made lots and LOTS of treat bags for the trick-or-treaters, and then we used the extra pieces for more treat bags!

But there were still more leftover pieces! Stampin Up is very generous with their extras, and I love making bonus projects with all of them.

These bats just SCREAMED Batman to me! So I cut the signal out of my favorite yellow cardstock and created a tri-fold card reminiscent of Gotham, perfect for Batman fan in your life. Read ahead for how to put this card together!

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Cut Black cardstock in half (4 1/4″ x 11″).
    • Score at 2 1/4″ and 7 3/4″.
  2. Cut 2 pieces of Basic Grey cardstock. 4″ x 3″. 4″ x 2″.
    • Emboss the smaller Grey with a brick brick embossing folder. Adhere to the top flap of your card.
    • Stamp small builiding in black ink on the larger grey piece. I used In The City, hostess gift from the previous catalog. Adhere to the bottom flap of your card.
  3. Cut a stitched oval from the Pineapple Punch Cardstock. Adhere a leftover bat from the paper pumpkin kit using dimensionals.
    • Apply adhesive to the top of the yellow oval, and adhere to the top flap with the bottom half hanging over the bottom flap.

Happy Crafting Comic Card!

If only there was a comic book about a crafter’s adventures!! What would your favorite story be? From burning away some of my finger prints with my heat tool to to dropping an ink pad (of course upside down) onto my pants to creating while my fingers are still glued together, not to mention being perpetually covered in random glitter! It’s all worth it, of course. Comment below about your favorite time crafting and we can share a few laughs!

Since I’m  not much of a drawer, I made a Comic Card and tried to capture all the excitement and drama that happens in my craft closet!

Each panel uses a different color of the rainbow along with a bold crafty image!

Based on how I would be cutting each panel to fit in with the others, I determined it would be easiest to stamp a stack of cards. Check out below for how to make these cards!
