I'm Over Halloween!! (Except for the Candy Part!)

Don't get me wrong, I love the CANDY!! I love giving it AWAY!! But, I don't decorate a whole lot and the pumpkin I bought last week got moldy before I even carved it! I'll be hanging my fall leaves wreath later for Trick or Treaters and I have a HUGE bowl of LARGE-sized candy bars for at least 40 goblins. That would break last year's record total on our dark street. Not a lot of kids come down our street and when they do, not a lot of folks are "open" for business, so I reward anyone that ventures down to the end of our cul-de-sac.

Anyway--I love this card! When in doubt about what to make, I always love to just open my Idea Book and Catalog or check out the Demonstrator's magazine, "Stampin' Success" which is where this CASEd card comes from. I briefly looked at the sample in the magazine and set about creating my own version, which really does look almost exactly like the one in the magazine.
I made my card easier, though!

The card in the magazine used Silver Foil Sheets to emboss on with Smoky Slate Embossing powder. I don't have the SS Embossing Powder, so I used Basic Black card stock and White Embossing Powder. They also used a separate panel of Whisper White to edge with an edgelit and then emboss with Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I just stuck part of the card front into the embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot that way. Easier!! I also changed the ink color on the sentiment from Soft Sky to Coastal Cabana. 
I hope you like looking! 

This card is so elegant, but SO quickly finished. Please leave your comments below, I love to read them!! Makes me feel like I'm talking to real people out there in blog land!!
