If creepy crawlies are not your thing, then today's spiderweb themed shaker filled card might not be for you. But, then again, I designed in pastel pink and orange, with glittery black spiders, so it's kinda cute!
Cute spiders aren't soooooo creepy, no??
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the new Inverted Scallop Rectangles from Whimsy Stamps, I created the frame from ballet pink cardstock. I adhered a sheet of clear acetate to the back of the frame (in order to create the shaker component of the card). On a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of white cardstock, I randomly stamped the two smallest spiders from the Fuzzy Spiders stamp set from Whimsy Stamps in ballet pink and pumpkin pie orange. I added about a tablespoon of confetti called "Ghostly Glitz" from This Calls for Confetti onto the white stamped cardstock before adhering the shaker frame on top.
I know it's hard to tell from the images, but everything else on this card was created on the outside of the shaker frame. Using the Spiders and Webs die set from Whimsy Stamps, I die cut spider webs from black cardstock and spiders from both pink glitter cardstock and black glitter cardstock. I adhered the spider webs directly to the acetate and I used 3M foam to adhere the spiders so they would be more dimensional and raised.

Using the Eek Word and Shadow die, I die cut the bottom layer from white cardstock, the middle layer from black cardstock and the top layer from pink glitter cardstock. I adhered all three layers of the Eek sentiment together using a fine-tip liquid adhesive. (*My go-to is LineCo Adhesive, a bookbinding glue). I adhered the word "Eek" to the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly I stamped the sentiment "creepy crawlies" in black ink on a thin strip of white cardstock and adhered this below the word "Eek."
I love using non-traditional colors for holiday cards. Pink, black and orange is one of my go-to color combinations for Halloween cards!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
