One more halloween treat...

Today is the final day of Clear and Simple's October Release.  What have you thought so far?  I think its been a lot of fun!  Today is all about Well Preserved.  They have several jar sets that are sure to knock your socks off!  I have whipped up a little halloween treat.  Check it out...

First, I made the card using the Gingham background and then a jar from the Well Preserved Medium Jar set.  I added in some corn candy from Trendy Tags, an older CSS set, as well as the happy halloween sentiment from Trinket Sentiments.  I colored the corn candy with Copics and attached it to the card with some foam tape.

Next, I added my favorite fall treat, Corn Candy and Peanuts (you have seen this pretty recently on my blog...its so yummy!  And I have lots of treats to make...so I have one gigantic bowl of this stuff!)  I took one of the jar dies and used it as a tag, stamping this fun little sentiment from Well Preserved.  So many possibilities with that sentiment right?

I wanted to show a close up of the ruffle.  To do this, I took ATG tape and ran it around the inside layer of the jar lid.  Then I added the crape paper around by ruffling and pressing it down into the tape.  I punched out a black circle and after putting the lid onto the jar, pressed the black circle down and then screwed the lid on.  I added in this fun halloween twine to attach the little jar tag.  I thought the ruffle was an fun little touch because I didn't have any fabric handy.  I am thinking I will use this trick again and again!

  8. Adorable card! I love the crafty ruffle you created on your jar! I never tried peanuts with candy corn. I'll have to try that while candy corn is readily available.
