Candy Corn Card

I love this time of year for many reasons.  Candy Corn is one of them.  I don't know why I love those little yummies, but I just do.  I decided since grown up's need candy and cards too, I would make a grown up candy card!  I also just wanted to bow to the candy corm gods, so I could fairly get my fall rations, and maybe some extra!  


This card was pretty quick to make and required no fancy machines!  Anyone can do this!
I used my straight paper cutter to cut the yellow and white layers to size.  I like to just filp over, mark with a pencil and cut!  Then I stamped the bottom of the orange card base with that cute fancy candy corn border.  First in orange to highlight the color, then with my Versamark so I could add embossing powder, that sparkles and adds a little texture!  See the close up below.  I was lucky enough to have some candy corn colored ribbon on hand.  Last I stamped the sentiment and the little decorations from my Peachy Keen Sept. stamp of the month kit.  First I hand cut the white layer, then glued it to an orange scrap from my box, and hand cut the shadow as well!  So see, ANYONE can make this card with what they have on hand!  Fun, right?

Okay, so it's really hard to catch sparkle dimension on a card with a camera, but really, it looks great in person! 

Hope you enjoyed to day's fun!  Have a fabulous week friends!  I have enjoyed all of the wonderful and sweet comments this week SO much!!!!
