Trick or Treat

Hi everyone, I was asked if I would like to make a card as Guest Designer for Cupcake Cards and Crafts.  It will be a reminder post for their October Challenge - Halloween With Kraft.  Well as if I was going to refuse, what an honour, I love their challenges the DT cards are gorgeous.

So here is the card I made:

As you've probably noticed I made a little treat bag to go with the card.  I started out just making a normal card, but after I'd decided on the design I wanted I couldn't figure out how to fit the greeting in so I turned it into an easel card.

I used Kraft card as a base for my design papers and the image, the treat bag is created from Kraft paper.  The image and sentiment is from Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons and the design papers are from Crafter's Companion.  The little spider webs in the corners are cut from a Bearly Mine design paper and the flowers were punched from Kraft paper and some of the design papers.  The other embellishments were some pearls, brads and ribbon from my stash.

This is my card on it's own, I'm never quite sure how to photograph easel cards.

and this is the treat bag, just right for some nice sweets for any Trick or Treaters that happen along on Halloween night.

Image:   Polka Doodles - Sundae of Seasons
Papers:  Crafter's Companion - Member Download of the Month, Bearly Mine Designs - Designer Extreme
Tools:  punch bunch flower punch
Embellishments:   pearls, brads and ribbon from stash

These are GREAT! I really like the way you photographed the easel card. You did a terrific job on both of these projects. Love the colors and papers you used. The flowers are just great and all of those embellishments, like your ribbon, spiderwebs (Terrific idea to cut them out, by the way) and those tiny brads look perfect on your card. Thanks for joining us at I DID IT CHALLENGE # 75!
Good Luck!
