Sexy Black Widow

Good Morning, everyone! I'm back, again, today! This time, to show you this fun shaped card I made for my husband for Halloween! (Scroll down to see the inside of the card)

I used this awesome Black Widow image from Stitchy Stamps. The image is colored with Promarkers. I did fussy cutting around the image, then attached the image to a piece of folded black cardstock. Once attached to the black card, I cut around it, again, to make a shaped card. The entire image has had glitter and sparkle added with a clearstar gelly roll pen.

Next, I decorated the inside of the card:

For the inside of the card, I cut some newsprint halloween paper to fit inside. (Yes, yes, I know, my cutting on that paper is bad, bad, bad! LOL) Then, I printed the image again, but smaller, and did more fussy cutting around it. I attached the smaller version to the center inside, then attached a sentiment across the middle. The sentiment is attached with foam mounting tape for dimension and 3D effect. This sentiment is from the Spiderweb set at Shelly's Images and matches perfectly!

I had a blast making this and am really happy with how it turned out! I think my husband will love it!
