Halloween Treat

Today I have a large corn kernel to share - a candy corn kernel that is.  My card is for the Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Challenge #8 and the Nacho Average Challenge #13.  I'm barely going to make the Great Pumpkin challenge but I'm trying to participate for all 13 weeks.

Here are the details.  Whisper White card stock was chosen for the card base.  The next layer is a piece of Early Espresso card stock that has both sides cut with the Big Shot and the zig-zag Finishing Touches Edgelits die.  I added a Daffodil Delight ribbon bow and a Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Brad to the corner and attached this layer to the card front.  I made the candy corn by
temporarily attaching pieces of Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie card stocks to Whisper White card stock.  It was cut out using the Big Shot and the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die.  The Pumpkin Pie piece was then embossed with the Big Shot and the Spider Web Embossing Folder.   I then permanently attached the pieces, rounded all three "points" and Pumpkin Pie ribbon was added over the seams between the colors.  The sentiment from the Delightful Dozen stamp set was colored with Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie markers and then stamped at the bottom of the corn.  Dimensionals were used to add the corn to the card.  This turned out to be very clean and simple; good thing since the deadline was so close.  So happy you stopped by.  See you soon.
