Halloween sweeties in three minutes

'It's all about the candy' states the sentiment on today's card - and that describes the card very nicely! I've used just two stamps from Halloween Hello to make a really quick, fun card for Three Minute Thursday - come and see:

The sweeties were stamped randomly over one half of the smaller panel and the sentiment added to the white space using a stamp-a-majig to make sure it was straight. The sides of the panel were tapped gently into a Summer Starfruit inkpad to make a subtle border.

I stamped the sweetie image one more time onto a scrap of Summer Starfruit card stock, snipped it out with my sharp paper snips and attached it under the sentiment with a dimensional. Very quick and easy!

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Halloween Hello
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Summer Starfruit, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso
Card stock: Whisper White, scrap of Summer Starfruit
Other: Paper snips, stamp-a-majig
