I just filled a clear bag (clearbags.com or SU!) with some candy corn and folded it over. Then I created the band with a strip of black cardstock (adhering the band by overlapping it and taping it on the front side). Then I created the little circle piece to add on top.
I stamped the image on white cardstock. Then I cut out the circle using a round Nestability die (so I could like the image up perfectly in the center). Then I inked the "treat" word from the trick or treat sentiment and stamped it around the border. I sponged the edges with more mustard ink and then I added the little purple and orange rhinestones!
Materials used: Stamps-Spooky Silhouettes (Gina K Designs); clear bag (clearbags.com); cardstock-white, black (Stampin' Up!); ink-Brilliance black, More mustard (Stampin' Up!); rhinestones (Gina K Designs); circle Nestability dies (Spellbinders); Cuttlebug (provocraft); Dimensionals (SU!).
And here is a card I created with the same set. I love these silhouetted images---so easy to make a card FAST! I created a mask for the moon and they brayered over the white cardstock with Night of Navy (Tip: I did not want it to be too dark, so I ran my brayer over a piece of scrap paper before running it over this one.)
I cut out the circle with my Nestability circle and then stamped the silhouetted images over it. Then, I cut out a larger white circle. On the larger circle I stamped the spider web from Happy Haunting.
The background is created simply by adding score lines with my Scor-Pal! (Tip: If you are planning to add a sentiment to the background that you are scoring--make sure to leave an unscored area for a smooth stamping surface).
I finished up this card with the embossed sentiment and the fun ribbon.
