Happy Halloween & CCC #37


This week's Cricut Cardz Challenge was to create a card using only the colors blue, black, white, orange and yellow.  Try as I did I could not get myself away from Halloween mode - I mean really think about those colors.  What theme could be more perfect?

For this card I broke out a pack of mat paper I purchased on clearance last year at Michael's that was too cute to resist.  It's Halloween from Recollections - now this was only used for the outside of the card.  The inside paper was single sheet paper I found at either Michael's or AC Moore.

Since both papers had spider webs I decided to use that as my main focus and cut the spider webs from the Mini Monster's cart.  The web was then painted with a black metallic paint and covered with black glittery fibers.  I also painted the web on the inside of the card with black metallic paint but chose not to use the fibers.

My spiders are from Designer's Calendar.  The larger spiders I dabbed onto a light sandy colored ink pad and the smaller ones I painted with the black metallic paint.  I then used a red paint (the blue just didn't show up too well) for their eyes.

Great card, Barbara. Love the Halloween theme. After I finished my DT card it clicked in for me that the colors would have been perfect for Halloween. What's that saying...A day late and a dollar short. LOL
Super cute card.
