Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Something Halloween

This week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart is to create something for Halloween and/or involving pumpkins.  I don't know why, but I had a very hard time with this one.  With my kids being older now and no longer doing the Trick or Treat thing, I don't have Halloween costume pictures to scrap every year, and also don't have the pumpkin picking and carving pictures to scrap either!

I ended up trying out a new technique with a suspended element in the window of a card, and I actually really like how it turned out!  I'm going to have to incorporate this idea in some Christmas cards I think!

Here's my spidy card.

It's a pretty clean and simple card, but I like the effect.  I think next time I would use either beige or black thread to string up spidy, the white is a little too visable.  Hmmm....I think I'm going to have to dig, I think I have some clear thread somewhere that I should try!

The paper is last year's Halloween paper pack.  The spider and the word Halloween are both cut from the Artiste cartridge.

Head on over to Heart 2 Heart Challenges to show us your Halloween creations!

Thanks for looking!!!

  1. Very cool and creepy card. Love that Cricut spider! I'm in the same boat, with kids who no longer dress up or want to decorate--takes some of the fun out of Halloween!
