World Card Making Day with Elmers #GluenGlitter

Today is World Card making day and as a part of Elmers #GluenGlitter I decided to make a Halloween card using Elmers CraftBond™ Glue Spots Pop-up Medium and Elmers CraftBond™ Glue Spots Thin Medium.  I also tried out the new Elmer’s X-TREME Glue Stick .  I had a great time shopping for the supplies and I enjoyed making my card.  Now I need to send it to someone!!!hahahahaha!!

If you want to take a look at my shopping trips click HERE.

This was such an easy card to make I have a tutorial for you!!

Here are the supplies!!

Elmers CraftBond™ Glue Spots Pop-up Medium and Elmers CraftBond™ Glue Spots Thin Medium

Elmer’s X-TREME Glue Stick

Scrapbook paper of your choice

thin ribbon or twine

Glitter

various embelishments

Blank card and envelope

Some I used and some I didn’t but I bought them anyways!!  Not pictured is the Black glitter I used it was from my stash! Also I used a corner rounder punch  but this is optional!

This is what I dug out of my stash!

Definitely need a paper trimmer.

And some good scissors!

I used a blank card purchased at Walmart.  I like this option because then you always have an envelope that is sized for the card!

I trimmed my paper to fit the card!

This is when I broke out the Elmer’s X-TREME Glue Stick !    I have to say I love this!!

I secured the paper to the front of the card and made sure the edges sealed nicely.

I trimmed the corners with the rounded corner punch.  If you dont want the corners rounded then leave them!

I pulled out a rhinestone spider web and placed it in the upper left corner!

I  cut 9 1″ pieces of thin black ribbon.  These became the legs of my spiders!! You’ll see in a minute.

I used the Elmers CraftBond™ Glue Spots Pop-up Medium  I placed 3 pieces of ribbon on the glue spot.

I angled them so they looked like spider legs!  You can trim these after you place them on the card so they don’t have to be perfect.

I repeated the process for the other 2 spiders and then placed them on the lower right part of the card.

See Naked Spiders!!

I then sprinkled the dots with glitter (thanks to Sara at Momendeavors.com)

I patted the glitter down so it would stick all over the glue dot!

Now you shake off the excess!

And Viola!!   Glittery Spiders!!  Thanks to Elmers #gluenglitter for the idea!!!

I added a few more embellishments and was done!!

Put a cute tiny spider on the envelope back flap.  Just because it was cute!

Heres a look at the finished card and the envelope back!!!

And here’s a closer look at those cute spiders!!!

This is such an easy project it would be great for the kiddos!!!
