Haunted House!

Today has been all dies and no coloring! This haunted house was so fun to work on. I got a little carried away and had to stop on the embellishing! Spiderwebs look great in black but I wanted to try white since they really are kinda transparent!

 In the window vellum was used at the bottom and acetate over the transom. I rubbed the window frame with white chalk to give it a haunted feel. 

 Using a ball stylus I rounded the body and legs of the spider. He was then dangled from white twine onto an orange button. Black Soot Distress Ink was used along the edges of the die cuts.  Ribbon and an embossed strip were run across the back. All the layers are popped up with foam tape giving a more dimensional look. I love using jewels to dress things up, and of course a bow!

The inside was done using the Bare Branch die set and the Spider Web die. The card is tent style and finished size is A2
Thanks for Looking!

  1. Beautiful and spooky all at the same time. You made me smile about your getting carried away with the dies. Easy to do on a Halloween or Christmas card. Love the rounded out legs of the spider. Even the inside is beautifully creepy. Hope you have a great week.

  2. This is such a fun card....all of your special touches to each element really make it stand out!
