Out on a Limb 3

OK…as promised, here is another prototype of my Control Freak Swap for the Holiday Mini.  You can see version one HERE.  I did like this one…and it is closer to where I ended up.  In the end, the spider web and spiders bugged me on this card.  So, I opted not to go with it.  I did like the moon behind the cat!



For this card, I started with a base of Basic Gray cardstock.  I layered on Pumpkin Pie that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Spider Web Impressions Folder.  I added a piece of the stripe pattern from Pick Your Poison Designer Paper…can you see the glittery strip of Silver Glimmer paper down the center of the DSP?  I also added a small Scallop Border Punch piece of the Silver Glimmer Paper in the upper right corner for a little accent!


I stamped the trio of spiders from Out on a Limb stamp set in Basic Black on the spider web impression.  Then I stamped the limb and the cat from Out on a Limb on Whisper White.  I punched a circle in a scrap piece of paper, then used Daffodil Delight to ink up the moon in the background.  The Whisper White is layered onto Basic Black cardstock.


So…as I said, I'm getting closer to what my finished swap card would look like!  Stay tuned!

Connie, I love the spiders creeping down the card!!!  They go so well with the spider web embossing folder.  Great job.  Can't wait to see the final card cause I love this one.
