American Crafts® Skull & Bat Paper. Tear between 1/8-1/4" around the edges of the 5"x7" rectangle as shown.

Thread a needle with white thread. With

the needle I punched holes in the upper left hand corner in a way that I could stitch and weave a spider web as shown. Starting on the reverse side I started in order to conceal the knot of the stitching for the spider web.

Fussy cut your colored images. I fussy cut one raven. I then fussy cut one skull, books and bottles image. I then fussycut one of books and skull image. Fussy cut the blue apothecary bottle.

Using Dimensional Glue® a needle with white thread. With the needle I punched holes in the upper left apply some on the backside of the spider web to secure and Tear-ific® Tape to adhere the ragged edged rectangle centered on the black solid core 5"x7" rectangle as shown.

Adhere the raven with foam tape about center with the wing just above the torn edge but below the Black edge as shown.

Adhere the Books, Skull and Bottles image with Tear-ific® Tape and a small piece of foam tape behind the green bottle.

Adhere the Books and Skull image on top of the books and skull image with foam tape for added dimension.

Adhere the Blue bottle with Foam Tape on top of the Blue Bottle for dimension.

Apply small droplets of Dimensional® Glue on to the Candle runners and using the needle pull the droplet up the candle runner.


Using your nesting die, center over your sentiment and run through your die cutting machine. Antique the edges using Vintage Photo Distress ink on the sentiment.

Adhere the sentiment with double Foam Tape in the lower left hand corner as shown.

Adhere the card front to the cardbase with the fold on the left. Adhere the 5"x7"
