The "Cobweb" die arrived yesterday in the mail and I decided to try it out. I had delayed for weeks on ordering it, even though I know it is a die I could use in many ways, but my hesitation was due to the fiddly details i the die which I have found in the past means I spend more time picking out the little cut pieces (and scraping them off my desk top and my hands and arms) because, no matter how many shims I use, they will NOT cut all the way through a piece of carstock that has already been run through my sticker machine... and there is no way something this detailed would survive being run through that machine AFTER being cut. And I was right abut this one too! Took me ages to pick out the web from the surrounding paper...
Anyway, I die-cut it, and inked it, and applied it to a card, added a heat-embossed "resident" and a caption that reflects most people's reaction to that kind of "resident" (not me so much since I am am married to a person who did his PhD dissertation on two species of spider... and we had a "pet" Mexican red-legged tarantula for nearly five years!).
