I am Going Batty with the Cricut Artiste in August Blog Hop

Welcome to the fourth day of the Artiste in August Blog Hop!  This is a circular hop and  Pamela O'Connor is the blog in front of mine.  We are a group of Close to My Heart Consultants who are making a different project each day using our brand new Close to My Heart Exclusive Cricut Artiste Collection.  Each day we will be focusing on a different shape or box that you can cut out with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.

Today and tomorrow are "pick your shape" days.  I picked the Bat Card.  I think that it is absolutely adorable.  It would make an awesome Halloween Party invitation or maybe hang it on a string from your ceiling as a decoration.  Kids could decorate it for Halloween.

As I have said before, the CTMH Cricut Artiste has Themed keys.  The Bat Card is found on the Eek! key on pg 76. I cut him in Black card stock at 5.5" and then again at 5" in Sunset card stock.  I cut the Sunset bat where the score lines were indicated and then adhered the Sunset bat to the Black bat.

 Here is my cute bat with his wings shut.

I adhered googly eyes on my bat's face.  I also decided that he needed a mouth so I cut the pumpkin mouth found on the Halloween key.  The googly eyes were adhered with Liquid Glass.  I used our Bonding Memories Glue Pen to adhere my bat's mouth.

And in the next picture shows my bat with his wings unfurled.

Look at his cute little bow tie!  I cut it with the Cricut Artiste cartridge with the Happy Father's Day key on pg 75.  I used our new Silver Glitz Glitter Glue on the middle of his bow tie.  The Eek! was cut with the Eek! key, of course.
