Hello! Stephanie here! For today’s project I wanted to create a non traditional Halloween card – something you could send to a friend any time during October. I loved the idea of this cute little spider dropping down from its web to say hello.
Below is a video showing the process I used to make this card. Instructions are also detailed down below, along with links to all of the products I used.
I started out doing some ink blending on my background using Distress Inks. I really wanted to use colors that aren’t normally used for Halloween, just to change things up a bit. I also coated my background panel with some Sparkling Sheer Shimmer Spritz for added sparkle. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Kat Scrappiness to create a frame, along with the Double Stitched Circle Dies for the center where my spider web will go. The stitched details on these dies give the card a nice finished look around the edges.
I absolutely adore this Spider Web Die from Gina Marie Designs. It’s unique from others I’ve seen because it has the cute stitched detail and it comes with three different spiders. I used some black glitter cardstock to cut my spider and some white cardstock for the web.
I wanted my spider web to be suspended over the circle, so I added a double layer of foam tape behind the smaller rectangle panel and adhered my web over the circular opening.
An easy way to create a custom sentiment for this card was to use the DYMO Label Maker. I love that you can change up the sentiment by using different stamps that you have in your stash. For this card I chose to say Hello.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed todays card. All of the products I used are linked below.
