Throwback Thursday with My Creative Time!


It's another Throwback Thursday Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time!  This week we are pulling out our older Cricut cartridges that have a card feature on them and making Halloween cards.  There are MANY cartridges that have this feature, and they are great for making a quick card!  I made this cute spider card using the card feature on Stretch Your Imagination.  To make this fit into an A2 size envelope, I cut my card at 4 1/4" on black cardstock.  To make the orange layer, I cut it at the same size again and then trimmed it down to a 4" square and cut out the spider, leaving a rectangular opening.  I also adhered the green paper to the inside of the card and then used a 4" square of black paper to cover up that and the brads on the inside.


To dress up my spider, I put some Glossy Accents on his boots and top hat and gave him some google eyes.  For my sentiment, I stamped the crossword squares from the My Creative Time Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set with black ink.  I then stamped the letters with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with black embossing powder.  It's hard to get a good picture of all of the glossy parts to this card, but they look great in person!


I used another My Creative Time stamp set for the inside sentiment:  All Around Halloween.  I stamped it onto a 4"square of patterned paper that I had adhered to the inside of my card.

Now, you are definitely going to want to play along with this challenge!  The winner will receive the entire 11th edition of My Creative Time stamps, that will be released next Friday, October 21st!  And they are AWESOME!!!  Head on over to My Creative Time to join in the fun!  Here's a peek at the two stamp sets I used today:
