Recessed Window Halloween Card







Hello everyone! Isn't this card just TOO CUTE? I love how it turned out. I saw a card this weekend using this recessed window technique over at Glendas Cards and had to try it. I found the tutorial here at Splitcoast Stampers. Thanks to Glenda for leaving that info. I cut the web from Oct. 31st at 4 inches and put it in the corner of my card. I also cut the spider from Doodlecharms at 1.5 inches and the couldron from Happy Hauntings cut at 2.5 inches. I pop dotted the spiders head on the body and also on to the card. The couldron I cut twice, once in green that I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy (I got my Gypsy!!!!) and once in black as the regular cut. The bat and ghost are stickers that were bought from Wal-Mart in the Halloween section and the BOO sentiment is a Peachy Keen stamp. I hope you all will give this technique a try! It's not hard and the end results are very rewarding! Have a great day!
