The creepy-crawlies!!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is not for the faint of heart with these creepy-crawly spiders! Since I’m using the opposite side of designer series paper from Monday’s card for the base layer and as you can see it has spiders all across it, I just knew I wanted to make this card to look like a huge spider web! Of course, you always see the finished product, not the painstaking miss and fails of trying to make a card come out the way I envision it! Which this card was quite the effort, mainly because I was trying to figure out how to make the mesh ribbon “look like” part of a spider web. I tried a few ways and then it hit me, cut the ribbon into strips…duh! Then it was what color cardstock the spiders should be (Basic Black or Blackberry Bliss), but there was no question what the sentiment on the card front should be! 

The base layer is this design from Magic in this Night DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Cut a 6” piece of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon and then cut it into three strips.

2. Heat emboss the sentiment in Silver Emboss Powder on Blackberry Bliss cardstock and cut out with the smallest Layering Circle Die.

3. Use the second smallest scalloped Layering Circle Die to cut out of Basic Black cardstock, this will be layered under the sentiment die cut.

4. Heat emboss the large spider twice and the small spider once in Silver Emboss Powder on Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Use the coordinating die to cut out the large spiders and fussy cut the small one.

5. You will need three 4mm and two 5mm Iridescent Pearls for the spiders, not shown.

For the Iridescent Pearls, use one 4mm for the small spider and one 4mm and one 5mm each for the large spiders, the 5mm in the back, or on the body, and the 4mm in the front, or closest to the head:

I placed the mesh ribbon across the embossed DSP as shown, adhering the ends to the backside:

I adhered the embossed DSP base layer to a Blackberry Bliss cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. The layered sentiment and spiders are adhered as shown with black dimensionals:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment and spiders in Blackberry Bliss ink, I used the balloon string stamp from So Much Happy with a Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker to make it look like the spiders coming down on their webbing:

So, did you get the creepy-crawlies from this fun spider themed Halloween card? Do you remember the “spider trinkets” that came out a couple of years ago? Those would be perfect for this card! Sadly, I used all of mine! Since this card used the rest of the DSP from Monday’s card, that means I made three of these! If you’ve been following along, I now have 9 cards ready for Halloween! I’ll continue on with cards, and try to incorporate some 3D projects too, over the next few weeks before it’s time for Thanksgiving!
