It's All About the Candy Halloween Card

For this card, I cut an A2 card base out of Halloween pattern paper. I love the cute "trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat" sentiment repeated on the cardstock along with little candy corns and black boots. So darling!
My little monsters are from Gerda Steiner Designs. I imported them to my Silhouette Studio Design software and sized them up for this card. While in my Silhouette program, I also sized up the "It's all about the candy!" sentiment by From the Heart Stamps from their digital stamp set "Candy Run." I printed the sentiment and images out, colored the monsters with Copics and MEXPY markers and then fussy cut the monsters.
I added some Halloween lollipops to my monsters and a couple of Halloween candies to the sentiment tag from a Paper Studios embellishment set I recently bought at Hobby Lobby. I tied some orange twine in a bow on the tag and adhered everything with foam squares.
I plan to send this off to my 2 nephews for Halloween. They are 7 and 10 and a good age for dressing up and collecting candy around their neighborhood. Ah, to be a kid again!!
