Halloween Yo Yo Card. Club card #1

Can you believe it's almost Halloween already. Where is this year going! The weather here in Pennsylvania has really been strange for October. The nights have been cool, but the days have been up in the 70's. However, this morning is the first day that I'm not wearing shorts. Well, at least not this morning. May have to change after lunch. 

Anyway, I had my October club this week and this is the first of three cards that we made. This is called a Yo Yo card. You pull the string and the circle spins. Wish it would spin back too. But then this is how my real yo yo's always worked. I never was good at it. 
The trick to this card is to not have anything dimensional on it except for the circle. Anything else raised would get in the way when rewinding the circle.

The paper I used is from the Laughing Lola paper pack. Don't you just love the colors in this paper. Not at all a Halloween paper but I think it works beautifully. 

The branch, owl, large bat, pull tab, and the mouse were all cut from the Close to my Heart exclusive Cricut Cartridge, Artbooking. The smaller bats were too tiny to cut out with the Cricut so I stamped them. Bats can be found in the Creepy Creatures stamp set. The Happy Halloween is from the Perfect Fit Halloween.

Stop by tomorrow for club card #2 and then Friday for card #3.
