Trick or Tweet Card

For this card, I used this week's sketch at From the Heart Stamps I {heart} Sketches challenge. I started with a 5x7 inch Kraft card base and used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the chicken wire design on the card front. The image and sentiment are from a digital stamp set by From the Heart Stamps called "Birdbrain Jack-o-lantern." I imported them to my Silhouette Design Studio software and sized them up for this card. I printed them out and colored the image with Copic and MEXPY markers.
I hand cut the banners for the sentiment and then used Spellbinders Labels 8 for the yellow mat and Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 for the orange mat. I used an outer circle die from Spellbinders Delicate Doilies to die cut a small circle and then embossed the circle with a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the spider. Then I trimmed the side a bit to match the sketch. I die cut the web border (La-La Land Crafts Spiderweb Border die) to go underneath. I die cut a second web border and cut part of it for the upper left hand corner, also.
I adhered the banners and image with foam squares, the mats with glue tape, and the web and spider with glue dots.
