Frosted Designs - Chipboard challenge

Hi everyone, it's time for a little Frosted Designs Monday inspiration to get you motivated to enter our weekly challenge, which is CHIPBOARD!!  You can get some great inspiration to get you motivated, here, here, here, and of course here! No excuses now, go play!

I used my Cricut to cut out the heart and inserted the spider's thread into one of the openings and secured it with dry tape and then glued the heart onto the paper. The spider is lifted up just a notch just to bring it up to the same level height as the chipboard. I also added a smidgen of black gelato around the outside edge of the spider web for a little shadowy effect.

I used my paper trimmer to cut strips of chipboard for the border around the card. Painting it with black acrylic paint and then coating the border strips with crackle for a little more spooky interest.
