Spooky Spiders and Jack O Lanterns


This is a card I made my 1 yr old niece for Halloween. The base is SU Basic Black, as are the layers. The patterned paper is once again, from the $1.00 scrap pack I found in the Target Dollar Spot last week. The Jack O Lantern strip was just pumkpins, but I took the face from Autumn Harvest and stamped on them to make 'em spooky, but not too spooky for a baby! The word EEK under the spider is just written by me with a Basic Black SU marker in squiggles. And the best part....

It's a spiral pop-up card!!! Someone on SCS recently posted a tutorial on this technique, however, me being me, found a way to make it differnt. My pop-up is done with acetate, not CS, so you don't really see it when you open it. The Jack O Lanterns that pop-up are again just cut out from the cheap paper I found, and stamped with the face. Sorry, about the writing showing, I didn't think to photgraph it till I had already written in it. Hope you like it!
