This was super quick to create once all the pieces were cut just glued everything and added dimensionals.

I don't often create Halloween cards but I just had to make this one. For the card base I used the colors in candy corn then created the shaped card base by cutting off one corner and using that as a template for the second corner.

I then stamped the hat, colored with copics and layered finishing off with the bow from my tote of items I am trying to use up.
