"Spirited" Altered Halloween Playing Cards

Playing cards are the perfect little canvas to be creative. I started with my card and used it as a template to cut the same size  patterned paper from the "Spirited" paper collection.

Next, I turned down the upper left corner and applied adhesive.  I then started to layer strips of paper, stickers and diecuts.  I inked the corners of each piece for dimension. I wrapped twine and tied into a bow.  I also added black self-adhesive gems (look at those spider bellies :)


Here are my 3 completed Altered Playing Cards...
