Spooky Spiders

Karen Burniston has brewed up a spooky little card for Halloween using her NEW Pop-up Spiderweb die and the NEW Bats TI folder. Here's what she says:

I started with a simple flip card. Here's a schematic for how to make one:

For my card front, I embossed it first with the Bats TI folder and then drew in a border with a white pen and ruler, avoiding the embossed bats.
I added a pre-made Halloween embellishment from my stash and added the word "happy" using white rub-ons. The spider was die cut from self-adhesive foam and then I peeled off the tape liner and poured clear embossing powder over it and heated it. Two red rhinestones add some spooky eyes.
Around the edges of the card back, I stamped spider webs in white ink.

A flip card is a bit like a teeter-totter (or see-saw). The card front is one end of the see-saw and the pull tab is the other end. Pull the tab and the card flips open.
Inside the card, I've used the new Bigz pop-up Spiderweb/Spider die, which is desperately simple to assemble. Simply cut the web, attach the outermost spoke to one side of a card interior using a small glue dot or brad, then add a small glue dot to the top of the web center and close the card. Open it and the web pops up. It's that simple!
The spider is on the die as well. For this card, I cut multiple spiders and glued them on the web so they pop up, too.
For the greeting, I die cut the words "Trick or Treat" using the NEW Chip Block Sizzlit strip by Tim Holtz. I covered the letters in glitter. Final touches were some ribbon and the word "boo" on the pull tab that is hidden when the card is closed, but revealed when the card is open.

Other supplies: Cardstock (Core'dinations); Embellishment (Making Memories); Ribbon (Fancy Pants); Small White Rub-ons (Doodlebug); Brads, rhinestones, white pen, spiderweb stamp, embossing powder (General Craft/Source Unknown)
