Watch Me Wednesday :: Candy Corn Card

Hey there! It's time for another Watch Me Wednesday video. Since Halloween will be wrapped up by next week's video date, I thought it would only be fitting to celebrate with a candy corn shaped card. I made another candy corn card here, which was featured on Paper Crafts' Moxie Fab World blog post here. I was thrilled that it was showcased there with so many other fabulous Halloween projects. Mine was so simple than my usual cards lately that I thought, I must re-do that card to 'dress it up.' So, I'm sharing how I created this shaped card and how you can embellish it more (or not like I did previously).

I stamped background patterns on the cardstock to give it some depth. I also added ribbon and tag treatment. The tag border was created using the Spellbinders Standard Circles LG die template as a stencil. I kept the cardstock in the die template after cutting and traced the circle. You can see this in the video though!

To create more texture, I added some crochet trim and embossed the top portion of the 'candy corn' with Provo Crafts' swiss dots embossing folder.

I created a template for the entire card. For all of my shaped cards, I have two shapes, one for the card front and the other for the card back. I score the top portion of the cardstock used for the card back, then adhere it to the back of the top of the card front's cardstock. That sounds really confusing, so check out the video if it really was!

Do you all have fall allergies? What's up with that? Well McArthur and I do. Last week, he had them and this week it's my turn! I have a big-head feeling, very itchy and burning eyes, and that dry cough. So, I'm going to take it easy because it's wearing me out! Anyway, thanks very much for watching! Have a great Hump Day!
