Jelly Belly Halloween...

Here's the Halloween card I planned for my hostess club for our Oct meeting. Everyone liked it, and it's fun and easy to make! Jelly Bellys are probably my all-time favorite candy, and to me there is no other jellybean, I happily pay $7/pound, no questions asked for my beloved JB's, luckily I don't eat sweets often! Here I chose Wild Blackberry, the color is a deep purple that is almost black and it really compliments this card! To make this card easier to make, we filled the cups, then stuck them to acetate, and then trimmed the edges. Once that's in place with a little glue, it's easy to set your layers. Took me a while to figure that out, but it's a great trick!

For this card, I chose an odd color combo, Basic Black, Green Galore, and Lovely Lilac. Most people do orange, but it just seemed played out to me this year, I wanted purple, and somewhere it works! We used the Sweet Centers stamp set, 1 3/4" punch, and the Sweet Treat Cups from SU for this card. To add a little edging, we punched the purple layer with the Spiral punch, and those openings worked perfectly for running our black ribbon through for the X. The Happy Halloween is from All Holidays, and punched with the Modern Label punch. We took our purple scrap (from the tearing) and punched 1/4" holes and stuck those on with Glue Dots. I will be making many more of these! I just hate that you have to tear the card to get to the goods, but you know for JB's, I believe I would tear it in a hot minute...LOL!
