This card uses new $1 stamps that I found at Michael's last week. Aren't they adorable? I picked up maybe 8 new halloween/fall stamps...the bin was COMPLETELY full and this was the new shipment...so I dug through all of them and made sure I got my fill of them! I even picked out a few for other people. At $1 each I can afford to do that! LOL! My guess is that there were probably 15 new stamp designs for the fall/halloween season? Since I'm running out of space for my single stamps I decided to be picky. That's why I came home with ONLY 8 (ha!)
Here's a close up of just the card:
And here's the card and the envelope I stamped to go with it:
The idea for the layout of this card was another sketch I found online. But the sketch was for a standard size card and my three circles wouldn't fit on a standard size card. So, I modified the sketch to fit a tall card and I made the tall card the right size to fit in a business size envelope.
I stamped the three spiders on white cardstock and used a medium sized circle punch to punch them out. (Tip for newbie punch users: flip the punch upside down so you can see what you are punching out and center it better.) Then I used a large circle punch to cut a contrasting circle to mat it. The rest is pretty simple layering.
I've made more halloween cards this year than ever before. I'm not sure why I'm in this mode right now...but I am! So I'm going with the flow till my next 'fancy' strikes me.
Have a wonderful day!
