Another Halloween Card

Be sure to check out Sunday's post for a chance to win some Halloween BLOG CANDY!

This card was made with the same spider stamp from Sunday's post and a candy corn stamp that I also got at Michael's on Saturday. I used the sketch challenge from last week as my layout and created a 4 1/4" square card with Pumpkin Pie as the card base. I then layered a 4" square of Basic Black that I embossed with my Cuttlebug Dots & Spots embossing folder (one of my favorites!). I stamped the candy corn stamp on my strip twice using a stamp-a-ma-jig to line everything up. This piece is layered on a strip of So Saffron.

For the focal piece, I stamped the spider and web separately so I could place the web in the 2 corners. I added the Happy Halloween sentiment from Fancy Flexible Phrases, sponged the edges in Pumpkin Pie, adhered it to Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and added my striped Michael's ribbon.

Finally, I added a couple of orange gems that came from Target's $1 dollar spot (maybe from last fall - I've had them around for quite awhile!).

Stamps: Fancy Flexible Phrases, Michael's spider and candy corn
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, So Saffron
Other: Michael's striped ribbon, Target gems
