....Along came a Spider and sat down Beside her !! EEEK !!


    I thought I would share another one of my Halloween creations for this year. This is a tri-fold card that I made for a Cricut Message Board swap. Using the new "Charmed" cartridge I made some little "spiders" out of SHRINKY DINK material first. I attached them to the front of a card that has a Spider Web cut-out, using white thread.

I was able to cut 3 at a time of the Spider webs from a cartridge called "Creative Holiday cards" and then each card base is cut from one single sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" black cardstock on the Cricut Mini Machine...

 I also used Graphic 45 papers for the inserts from the "Happy Hauntings" collection for layers and a stamped image of a spider with the word "EEK" that I found at Michael's in a $1.00 bin, and also inside is a stamped image of a Frankenstein monster that I colored in with Spectrum Noir markers...
These were lots of fun to make, although I messed up a few before I managed to get 6 of them that were presentable. There were some challenges in the gluing process until I could figure out the best way to attach everything....but in the end I think they came out pretty cute .
  Thanks for looking at my Blog and I wish you all a fun and Happy Halloween !!
