ON THE WEB

Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to the rescue once again! This time I used it with the skeleton dude. Isn't he simply adorable? To think we all look just like that inside . . .


Here he is up close and personal. I embossed him in white on black cardstock, then punched him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch (page 6 of the Holiday Catalog). 

Because I do not have the Stampin' Up! spiderweb embossing folder (besides I think that would overdo this card anyway), and none of my other Stampin' Up! folders were appropriately creepy enough, I turned to this old Tim Holtz embossing folder, which to my eye looks like multiple spooky spiderwebs and contrasted nicely with the spiderweb behind our little skeleton. Embossed on Smoky Slate cardstock, it gave the exact impression I was going for.


The spiderweb doily stuck over the two side edges a bit. So, in order to fit the cards inside an A2 sized enveloped, I just trimmed the sides of the web at the edges of the card. I think this worked well because it added a bit to the creepiness what with the hanging edges and all.


Little Skeleton Dude and I wish you and yours 
a safe and spooky Halloween!

  4. This is so adorable! I absolutely love this card! Layering the spider web over the orange oval looks great. I would have put it behind which wouldn't look nearly as great. Thanks for the awesome card idea!
