So What's New Blog Hop!

Thank you for visiting my blog from Becky @
I'm sure you enjoyed what she has shared!  I look forward to everyone playing on our Hop!

This Blog Hop begins with Leah from: This is a 2 day Hop with a group of new bloggers excited to be part of the "Bloglicious" crafting world!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my project! Instructions for this card are below:

First, I got the idea for the card size from one of my favorite blogs; (she has so many terrific ideas).   This card is wonderfully excellent size as it gives you the ability to use up all of those white letter size envelopes we all have sitting around.
Card Size 4 inches width, 9 inches height (4" x 9")
To create this particular card size I cut a piece of black cardstock into 8" x 9" size and folded in half to make it now an 4" x 9".
Next I created a patterned paper layer from last years DCWV Halloween stack.  The layered strip measures 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  I also adorned the strip with a strip of purple and black ribbon.
From that point I used black cardstock and my Cricut Expression to create the black spider web embellishment from the new Theresa Collins Chic and Scary cart (web measures 4 1/2").  Then I used the same cartridge to cut the tree embellishment at 3".  I also used the same cart to cut the spider at 1 1/4".  To give the card a little extra I used some of this fake spider web stuff I picked up at a scrapbook expo.  I also used red bling embellishments on the spider and used Queen & Co. pearl accents and finally I used Little Yellow Bicycle "Happy Halloween" Canvas Tag.

Again, thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy! Your next stop today will be:
