This card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I used olive green cardstock for the card base. I then cut a piece of striped orange cardstock to 4 1/4"x6" and adhered it tot he card base. The circle is cut from white cardstock at 2 3/4." I then sponged it with some night sky ink by Tsukineko. I also distressed the edges of it as well. The spider is cut at 2 1/2" from Wrap It Up. I added some crackle accents to his back for texture. I used a Bazzil template to create the swirls, which I then stitched with dark blue embroidery floss. Once the swirls were stitched I adhered the cirlce over the top of them. I then added my spider and finished it all off with the stamp. I stamped it five times in the same night sky ink. I also finished off the inside of the card. I cut some dark orange cardstock at 4 1/4"x6" and then some white cardstock at 4"x5 3/4." I again sponged night sky ink around the edges of the white cardstock to tie the front and inside together.

I made this card for the following challenges:

  4. I like the hand stitching you used for the flourish. It looks like it could be the start of the spider's web. Thanks for joining the PK challenge! Good luck!
