The image for this ATC comes from one of my favorite Halloween digital stamp sets: "Candy Run" by From the Heart Stamps. I recently made an interactive box with this little guy on the front (see my post labelled "Halloween Box" from October 3 for details on how I digitally colored the image and did a print and cut of the candies and sentiment used here) and couldn't resist using him again for this project!
This has been a week of ATCs for me, with this one being my 3rd and final one for the week. It's a challenge to design a layout for a card that is only 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, but that's part of the fun! Plus, I really enjoy miniature stuff.
I cut the purple shimmer cardstock into the 2 1/2 inch by 3 1/2 inch rectangle using my paper cutter. Then sorted through my leftover "goodies" from when I did a print and cut of this character, the sentiments that went with him, and some candy decorations. I chose the sizes I wanted and how I wanted them laid out on the ATC, and then I adhered most of it with glue tape. I popped up the candy corn with a foam square so it was the same height as the sparkly candy embellishments below the sentiment. I distressed the edges of the "Happy Halloween" sentiment with black ink to help it stand out more.
