Every year I make 100 Halloween cards for my mom to give out to friends, family members, shut-ins from her church and members of the different Bible study groups she's part of. For this year's batch, I decided to use PTI's adorable candy corn die set along with some cute little PNGs from Miss Kate Cuttables.
I used the "plain" candy corn die to make top-hinged white cards in the shape of candy corns. Then I die cut orange candy corn shapes and glue taped them to the card bases. Next, I die cut the stitched outline in white and used a yellow ink dauber to color the center part of the candy corns. I also die cut the little candies and miniature candy corns with dies that came with the PTI candy corn die set and colored the white candy corns with Copic markers. To assemble each card, I used a Zig glue pen to adhere the white outlines to the card fronts and then used glue tape to adhere the yellow and white layers of the candy corn.
For the Halloween characters, I used Miss Kate Cuttables images and did a print and cut of them using my Silhouette. I also used a Miss Kate Cuttables PNG file for the little treat bag on the inside of the card and added a label-shaped cut file around the image to cut it out. Then I did an offset of the label so I could mat the image with some matching green cardstock.
I think these cute cards should brighten the day of all my mom's recipients!
Here's a look at the inside of the card:
