I'm excited to be participating in my first Freshly Made Sketches card challenge since starting up this new blog!
Whenever I've made Halloween cards in the past, I've always gravitated towards a scarier, busier-looking card, but for this 'fresh' challenge, I aimed for a cleaner, cuter look.
The banner and web were cut from glittered, patterned paper by K & Company. And no, that web was not cut with a die -I painstakingly cut it out with my trusty Cutter Bee. I thought it would add more interest by allowing the background to show through. It still looked a little plain, so I used baker's twine to extend the web further. I finished it off with a cute little spider button and sentiment, which I just may end up changing to reflect my nephew's birthday, which happens to be on Halloween day :o)
Thanks for looking!
