Spooky Count Maxwell

I'm back with Day Four of the countdown to Halloween!

Stampendous/House Mouse card is up again today. This time the request was for a nine year old boy.  I've selected Count Maxwell and added a cool spider and web for this one. 


 After sizing the image to about 3" tall and printing, I colored with my Copic markers.  I used the Whimsy Stamp Notched Square die for the image and the selected background paper. 

The spider web die from Polkadoodles, Spooky Hat dies set was just the right size for the card once I laid it on the card front and carefully trimmed off what I didn't need.  The spider is secured using a small foam square under it to give a little more dimension.  Lastly, I added the black organza ribbon at the card fold and knotted it securely.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
