Now on to my card. I am in the middle of making Halloween cards, so I decided since it is October and my house is decorated that I would post a Halloween card. It is one of my favorite holidays. There is no stress, just fun costumes and candy. I enjoy all of the fall colors too and some of my decorations are left up until after Thanksgiving. We take a trip to a special pumpkin patch farm every year and now with having grandkids it is an all day outing, with many activities for the kids, a hay ride and a corn maze. So much fun for one day. I love the changing of the fall leaves. Beautiful colors are abound. I also love October, because it is my birthday month. I love this card and hope you do too!My card is a standard A2 size card. I used yellow card stock for the card. The background paper is DCWV paper that I bought at Joann's. I cut a piece of orange card stock and punched the pumpkins on the top with a Martha Stewart pumpkin edge puncher, then put yellow paper behind the orange paper. I added the words Harvesting Candy, cut from a piece of Martha Stewart's Halloween pack. I think this was last year's paper. The whole thing is popped up. The candy corn strip is from Heidi Grace Jeepers Creepers Candy Corn paper. I then used a tag that I had in my stash that was the right color, along with some pumpkin ribbon and a brad. Then I cut out the boots from Heidi Grace Jeepers Creepers Boots paper, popped them up and added the pumpkin, which is from Sandylion Essentials. It is also popped up.
I decided that the inside of the card needed to be decorated too, so I cut a piece of harvest yellow card stock out on the Spellbinder, using the 2nd to the largest Fleur De Lis die. The sentiment is stamped with an acrylic stamp from Studio G and then embossed. The candy and candy corn is stamped with Studio G acrylic stamps and then colored with Copics. I popped up the candy pieces. The trip on the top and bottom is from the same Heidi Grace paper as the candy corn paper from the front, just a different strip on the paper was used.
