  • 3. Use Coluzzle to cut circle in center.
  • 4. Use Black Craft Ink to stamp spider on Whisper White cardstock; sprinkle with embossing powder and tap off excess. Use heat embossing tool to emboss design. Use Silver ink to stamp "Eek!" above spider. Use 1-1/4" circle punch to punch out design. Punch 1/16" hole in body, then thread silver cord through body hole and secure end with tape in back. Punch 13/8" circle from Basic Black cardstock; mat under spider design.
