Eeeeekkk . . .

Hello Tutti Fans ...
It's Darlene with you today sharing another fun creation using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.  Specifically a die from the August Fall/Halloween Release.  I don't send many Halloween cards these days but I thought this would even work for a Birthday card with an inside verse that might say something like this ... 

Eeeek! ... you're HOW OLD???

The die I have used for today's card is the 'Gravestone' die #378.

No automatic alt text available.

My background paper (very old 12x12 ... possibly DCWV) had the white spiders crawling up the page so that was the basis for my card.  I knew I wanted dimension to my gravestone die cut image but also thought it might not work out well using dimensional tape.  So, once again, I die cut my image multiple times (4 to be exact) and glued them together.  That gave me the dimension I was looking for and kept the background shadow BLACK.

If you noticed, on the front of the gravestone is a spider which of course popped out with each cut.  Well what better embellishment than the scrolls & spiders that would have otherwise been tossed in the trash.  I added a few black spiders crawling up the web as well as used one on the inside along with the scrolls.
