Halloween Card

Since Halloween is coming fast I decided to make a Halloween Card.  I found this black and white spider web print and bought some purple velum to go over the top.  It was super easy.  I made 2 cards using the same paper.  The second card I will post on Thursday.  

Using a basic white card as the base I cut the spider web print and the purple velum the same size as the front of the card.  I used black brads to attach the velum over the print and then glued the print to the front of the white card.

Then comes the super cute spider.  My girls were freakin' out about how cute the spider is and we are now making several of these cards for them to give out.  I used some crazy hairy looking black string for the legs.  You could use yarn also.  I cut the legs longer then I needed to give myself length to glue on the legs and to keep them from fraying I had to burn both ends of the string I used.  I used a black pom-pom for the body, googly eye and a tiny red pom-pom for the nose.  He looked cute without a nose too.  I used hot glue to put the spider together and also to glue him onto the card.  I went through my Halloween stickers and found the spooktacular one that I added and that's it.  A cute, fun, Halloween card.
