Halloween Pop Up

Here's a cute card using Spooky Bingo Bits.
The Rich Razzleberry layer is done with the Iced Crystal technique 
I found at
You need:
a 4 cup glass measuring cup or bowl
1 cup of boiling water
1 cup of Epsom salts
a paintbrush

Pour the water into a bowl and add the Epsom salt. Stir until the Epsom salt is dissolved.
Paint it onto your cardstock. Drain off any extra liquid right away.
Once it starts to set up, don’t go back and “repaint” as you will destroy the crystal effect.
Let it dry! It's best to do this overnight but you can lay it in front of a fan or use a heat gun. 
You won't see the effect at first, as it dries you start to see the frosty effect of the drying Epsom Salts.

To create the pop up:
Punch the window opening through all the layers on the front to create the opening.
Attach the circle with the word stamped on it, inside the opening.
The pop up is created by cutting a 2.5" circle into a spiral.  Each end is attached with Sticky Strip.
Attach the bat stamped circles along the spiral, when you open the card they "pop" up at you.
I did double bat circles so the back didn't show.  I just attached one

Very interesting technique! I'm curious now what it would look like if you drug a bone folder through it before it dried like the faux alligator technique for the wallets. May have to go get some epsom salts!
