Countdown to Halloween

Day 3 

I know, I know! It's really Day 5 and I am only on Day 3!!! Well... there's a darn good excuse for that! I found a great retail marketplace last week and guess what? I moved it!!! Yeah! So that means my weekend was busy with tagging and inventory and all of the boring stuff that goes along with owning your own business. Ok, ok, enough of that. You just want to make a quick, cheap and easy card! 

Before we get started remember that all of my tutorials are on also on my YouTube Channel Subscribe for updates! 

This quick and easy card will have you EEKKKIIINNNGGG in no time. Very basic and minimal supplies ( just how I like it!) you can adjust this to the supplies you already have and be sure to use up those scraps! 

Here are the paper sizes you will need:

Card base: 8 1/2x5 1/2
Solid background (grey) 5 1/4X 4
Black 5X 3 3/4
Inside light colored card stock  5 1/4x4
Pattern paper- enough to cover the back of your punched image

Fold your card base in half and attach the grey card stock. Using a punch or die cut, cut out your negative image from the black card stock and use an embossing folder to emboss. Tape your patterned paper behind your cut out image. I used an EK Success punch for the spider and a Darice embossing folder for the web. 

Tape your ribbon around the embossed black card stock. 

Stamp your sentiment, border it with 1/4 larger background and attach.  Don't forget to add a lighter color to the inside of the card for your message! 5 1/4X4

See! Quick and easy!
