Which Way to the Candy?

Happy Friday Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today and I have a fun Halloween card featuring an adorable ghost trick-or-treater from the new Halloween release!  I love this new release - there are some really sweet Halloween images and I'm a cute Halloween (as opposed to scary Halloween) kind of gal.

This card features the Trick or Treat Ghost die and along with a few previously released dies.  I started by cutting all my pieces from various colors of cardstock.  I took my candy colors from Halloween candy themed paper I'm using for behind my ghost.

I cut a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches from a coordinating Halloween text paper, a panel 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches from black cardstock and a circle from the candy paper using the third largest of the Stitched Circles dies.

I adhered the black panel to the right side of the card front and glued the candy randomly down the side.  The sentiment is placed in the lower left with the top of the "T" in "Trick" 1 1/2 inches from the bottom and 1/4 inch from the left.

Next I adhered my ghost to the circle leaving most of his balloon above the circle.

I cut the circle and placed the ghost so you could see the candy corn in the paper since that ties in the die cut candy colors.

I used foam dots to pop the circle up off the card front and glued the bat in the upper left.  (I love those big eyes on the bat!)

Finally, I added sequins as a little "eye candy" and sparkle!

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Be sure to visit the online store for the Columbus Day Sale where these and other dies are on sale for a limited time!  There is a brand new release a Christmas dies as well!
