Found this card while clearing up in the craft room

This card is one I made for family last year – guess I made an extra one!

I like it because it is one of the easiest I have ever made, but it is evocative in its simplicity,

don’t you think?

No doubt which holiday it is for!

Here’s how I did it:

made a black card base, 4.25 by 5.5

tore up a scrap of white fabric, like an old sheet.

cut a piece of cardstock narrower and shorter than the card base.  I think I used a cereal box for this, fairly sturdy.

taped the start of the fabric at the top of the back of the cardstock to secure it, then wrapped it around it until it was covered.  Taped it on the back to hold it.

Glued it to the front of the card base.

Glued on eyes. They were a pain to get to stick, had to finally use Elmer’s white glue

Used red smooch ink for the drops of blood.

Stuck on a spider sticker.

 

Voila – Halloween mummy!

      1. I tried to post the link on your comments page but it does not allow links. Here’s the code.

        Select the code then copy it by selecting the CTRL button on your keyboard and the letter C at the same time. That will copy the code into your clipboard. Then just paste in on your site by selecting CTRL V on your keyboard. 🙂 I hope this helps!

        1. OK, I got it onto my links (on the left side of my blog), but no pretty button. Do you know much about this? Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Or if there is a setting I need to change?

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
