Baker's Twine Webbed Card!

Here is my very neat project for today! I received an email from the company that I purchased my eCutter from and in that email, they showed a photo of a project that was called a "string spider web". That's where today's inspiration came from. I knew I could make this on my own using my Stampin' Up! supplies. What do you think of my "string spider web" card?

And my punch art 3D spider:

Here's a side view of the card so you can see that it's open in the middle of the card front:

And this is what it looks like when it's open:

I think this is such a neat card and so much fun to create. I used the Circles Collection Framelits Dies to cut out two scallops. Using one of the scallops, I centered a circle 2 sizes smaller to cut the inside. I then used a 1/4" hand-held punch and punched the small holes around the scallops at every other scallop:

Then all you do is start threading your Baker's Twine every-which way from one hole to the other until you like the look. I ended in the same hole I started and them double-knotted and snipped the ends off. 
For the inside of the card, I cut a circle a size larger than the circle in the front, in Basic Gray Cardstock. I then scored from scallop-to-scallop at the very top and folded. I then glued the folded portion to the front portion.

Did you know that you can get awesome ideas such as this card with our Holiday Collection at Create with Connie & Mary? You can still join and catch up with all of our postings that started last week. Lots of ideas for the holidays!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
