Sweet Centers Halloween Card


I can’t get enough of this fabulous new stamp set!  Sweet Centers with the Sweet Treat Cups is the cutest idea yet!  Here I’ve created a Halloween card using the color scheme that Stampin’ Up! features in their Halloween collection on pages 22 and 23 of the Idea Book & Catalog.  Whenever I want a fresh, new color palette, I turn to Stampin’ Up!’s fantastic color choices and the Catalog helps me so much!

The card base is Basic Black, with the 8-1/2"x11" paper cut lengthwise to 4-1/4"x11".  This allows me to wrap that gorgeous Crushed Curry 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon around the end of the card.  I used the pretty flourish stamp from Friends 24/7 to stamp on the Old Olive card stock in two of the corners, then tore the opposite edge.  Next comes a piece of Crushed Curry card stock.  I stamped my Halloween image in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on Whisper White card stock, punched out the center with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch, then filled my Sweet Treat Cup with gourmet lemon jelly beans–the perfect color!

I didn’t want to waste that cute little saying that I punched out of the main image, so I adhered it to the inside of the card, then drew a line with my White Gel Pen to "hang" the spider from the card.
