Halloween Spider Web Card

Some of you will think that I copied Cheryl's pop-up Halloween cards (seen on Joy of Crafting OC 16, Sunday 6:30pm) when you see this card, but honestly I had constructed it before watching the Joy of Crafting yesterday. I guess Cheryl and I are just thinking along the same lines. I used the ball pop-up Sizzix die cutter to make the spider web. I found that the ball shape was too round for what I wanted so I removed one rubber band to make the ball flatter. I made the ball from black cardstock and pasted on pieces I cut out from a 12x12 spider web cardstock by Imaginisce. (Save the die cut scraps to use as templates to mark the pieces to cut and glue to the top of the ball.) I was amazed that Cheryl also had the same idea to use the polyester fiber for the faux web. For the front of the card I used paper and sticker letters from Making Memories (last year's Halloween pack). The spiders are flocked stickers from Martha Stewart. I glued the web down with FabriTac and taped the paper parts together with Merikan double stick tape. Thinking of different ways to use Sizzix dies is creative fun for me and I feel that I am getting my money's worth when I can use a die in several ways. Have a creative day!
