Wow! Two posts in one day! As my last post did not include a card to possibly inspire you I thought I would share this Halloween invitation. I typically do not work on a great deal of Halloween designs but this paper inspired me to create. This is an invitation but could easily be changed into a greeting card just by changing the sentiment. The polka dot paper I believe is an older one from K and Company but it just spoke Halloween to me. Or, it would be a great paper for a Birthday card. The stamp is from the bins at Michaels. Stamps very well, by the way. To bring more texture to the design, once the spider webb was stamped I stitched on seed beads and attached a black brad to become the spiders body, then layered it onto coaster board. A die cut label shape from Spellbinder's was sponged with orange ink and layered under the spider webb square. Add a bit of ribbon, a few rhinestones and a sentiment and you are done. A quick card or invitation, to make it even quicker you could opt to glue the beads on.
Hope you like it!
