BONUS PROJECT
Directions Card 2:  Emboss the front of an orange card base with a spider web design. Add highlights to the spider web using a fine tip gel pen. (white & glitter) Make three spiders by adhering black Dew Drops to the spider to create the 3-D body. To create a kinetic element on the card, hang the spiders by attaching a silver thread to each. Finally, fold each thread over the top edge of the card base and secure with a strip of washi tape on the inside of the top edge. Lastly, add a Halloween sentiment.
