Hello everybody and Happy Halloween!!! Today I am stopping in to share a quick "Treat" I whipped up just for the occasion.
This card turned out super cute and was so very fun to create.
To begin, I started off with creating my Candy Corn paper piecing. KaDoodle Bug Designs has the cutest file, "Shoptastic Cuties - Pumpkin & Candy Corn Cuties". I knew the Candy Corn from this file would be perfect for what I wanted to create. I uploaded the file to my Cricut Design Space, resized the image and cut out all of the pieces using my Cricut Explore. I then inked and chalked each piece before adhering them together to create my finished Candy Corn Cutie.
As I set my Candy Corn off to the side to ensure it dries, I moved on to my card base. My card base is a standard A2 sized card created with Kraft Cardstock. For the mat of the card, I cut it down 1/4" smaller than the base and used Neenah Cardstock. I had the perfect stamp in my stash from Lawn Fawn, entitled, "How You Bean? Candy Corn Add-On. With my Misti and a bit of masking, I stamped several layers of this yummy candy corn stamp down onto the bottom half of my cardstock.
With the masking adjusted and on the top layers of my stamp, I then used some of my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks to blend out some of the candy corn colors towards the top of the card.
I colored the candy corn images using my Copics. I also stamped the top of the card with the sentiments that came in the Lawn Fawn stamp set.
Once everything was dried, I added some foam mounting tape to the back of my adorable candy corn to allow him to "pop-up" a bit and adhered him onto the card.
I am super happy with how this sweet Halloween treat card turned out.
