Trick-or-Treat? Definitely a TREAT!

Receiving this card would definitely be a TREAT in our book!  The sweet treat cup is filled with new Stampin' Up! In Color Glimmer brads!  Once again, we LOVE how they coordinate perfectly with the other In Color products like cardstock and ribbon.  The "Trick or Treat" was done using the new letterpress plates for the Big Shot.  We won't lie, using those is a bit of a project, as it's recommended that you use a brayer and craft ink with watercolor paper, which is how we did it.  The pumpkins are made with punched circles (2 1/2" and 1 1/4"), and the sweet treat cup fits into the 1 3/4" size.  A snip of Pear Pizzazz ribbon was looped for the pumpkin stems and a snip of Concord Crush ribbon was used for each corner of the Trick or Treat.  In hindsight, we probably should've inked the edges of the circles for shadowing on the pumpkins, but otherwise, we think any stamper or crafter would be happy to get this treat!
