Spider-Man Thank You Cards

This is my final post about my son's Spider-Man third birthday party.  If you haven't read about the party do so here.

These were the thank you cards we mailed out after the party.  I was inspired by Gail Murray's spider owl that I found on Pinterest and knew I had to create one for these thank you cards.

Supplies Needed:

Card Stock: Real Read (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scrap for punching) Basic Black (5-1/4" x 4" and scrap for punching) Pacific Point (scrap for punching) Whisper White (scrap for punching)

Ink: Whisper White craft ink
        Real Red
        Basic Black marker

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Teeny Tiny Wishes Clear-Mount Stamp Set
Accessories: Big Shot
                     Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
                     Owl Punch
                     Modern Label Punch
                     Word Window Punch
                     Whisper White Bakers Twine
                     Paper Snips
                     Stampin' Dimensionals
                     Glue Dots

Directions: Run Basic Black through the Big Shot with the Spider Web folder.  Run the Whisper White craft ink over the raised side of the web.  (Be sure your surface is covered before doing this step.)  Set aside to dry or use the heat tool to set the ink.

Assemble the Spider Owl like picture below:
Adhesive Basic Black to the Real Red card.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to glue the Spider Owl to the web.  Stamp "thank you" with real red onto Whisper White and punch using the Word Window punch.  Using the Modern Label Punch, punch Pacific Point and assemble with word window sentiment.

Cut the whisper white Bakers Twine to the size you need then fray the edges so they look like webbing.  Use a glue dot to adhere the twine to the back of the label.  Use a Dimensional to adhere the label.

I was so happy how these came out.  I am in the process of planning my other son's 2nd birthday which is most likely going to be around Disney's Little Einstein.  There are not a lot of stuff out there for that show so stay tuned to see what I come up with!
