a ten minute card... for real!

 The ten minute card... here it is! A quick card made easy with dies from Memory Box. 
The card base is made with a folded white piece of paper cut with the Debutante Frame #98297.I cut an additional piece of the orange polka dots using the same the die to layer over the front of the card. The Spider Web Frame Die #98380 was made to layer perfectly on the frame die. The Dangling Spider Die #98286 was added to the white panel over the stamped be afraid!
 My spidey needed some shine. I used Ranger's Black Enamel to enhance him just a little. I pooled a bit of the enamel on a scrap paper and then used a toothpick to carefully apply it to the legs, finishing it by adding a good bit to the body as well. Had I thought ahead, I would have done this first, let it dry and then added it to my card! 
Here is the up close view. I added a black crystal to the center of the web. I used foam tape to pop up the panel... and of course spidey should dangle from a bow! The card opens tent style at the bottom. OK, really... playing around with papers and thinking about what I wanted to do, this was really more like a 30 minute card process. But I could totally replicate it in ten minutes, so that counts, right?
