Flying Witch

Front, closed

I wanted to do something a little different today, so I created a floating-die card.  They are very easy to make and I love how the die spins in the center when the card is opened.  I added double adhesive tape to black cardstock and die cut the Wicked Witch twice.  Make sure one of the die cuts is reversed, so when you glue them together they will be facing the same way and the adhesive will be on the front and back of the glued together piece.  She is adhered to a piece of thread that is sandwiched between the patterned paper and the cardstock on the front panel.  I wanted the string to blend in, so I colored it with Pan Pastels to match my Pan Pastel colored moon, which is on the inside of the card.

Once the front and back pieces of the witch were adhered to the string, I exposed the adhesive on each side and covered it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Night Sky Sparkle N Soft flocking.  Not only is she sparkly, but she feels good too.

For the inside, I added more patterned paper and my colored moon.  The sentiment was created using Die-Versions Metropolis font.  The letters and the "bats" were cut out of left over pieces from when I die cut the witches.  When I was looking at the die, the parentheses resembled bats to me, so that's what they became :-).   Orange Surprise glitter was added to the letters and Black Ice glitter was added to my bats.
