I do not celebrate Halloween because of personal beliefs. Because of that I don't make Halloween cards or projects, so a set like today's is a challenge for me. I looked at this set for quite awhile and then I decided on using this spider. Once I had a person in mind to give it to, the card just kind of fell together. I made this card for my dear friend Katie. She made a video last year that went viral about life with her 4 little boys.
A couple of weeks ago, one of her boys came and told her about his new pet. He had named it and everything. It was a giant, and I do mean giant, spider that was hanging outside of their home. She shared that story on facebook and their were several people who were giving advice on how to get rid of him... mostly by doing him in ( and by him, I mean the spider) But she said how could she do that when her son had already named the spider. I asked her about the spider this weekend when we were doing worship team together at church, and she assured me that the spider was still there and doing well, but she was hoping that "cold weather" might solve the problem. She has a great sense of humor, as you can see from her video. I thought it would be fun to make her a spider card. On the inside I used the sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set called FAMILY that says "What a Woman". That is how I feel about my friend. She is an amazing mom and I hope when she sees this, it makes her smile and laugh. I stamped the spider on to a strip of dp left over from when I was making my balloon card for yesterday. I then layered that strip over a piece of black cardstock and more of the same dp. I like how it smudged in the right hand corner. I used a black ink pen to draw the web. I colored him in red because I thought a "pop" of red would make him stand out. I used my new spellbinders garden gate die to make the fence at the bottom. It was a very CAS card for me. I really like how it turned out.
