It’s National Candy Corn Day
National Candy Corn Day! To celebrate Candy Corn, a traditional Hallowe’en treat which can also carry over into Thanksgiving! I did a really cute pull-out card in a class several years ago that featured a large Candy Corn on the card front. I can’t find the photo, if I even took one. This led me to look in my stash of cards to see if I saved a copy.
The only Candy Corn photo I could find on my blog is in the Scary Candy Corn Treat Box article from a couple of years ago. Too bad the Cutie Pie Thinlits™ retired, I used them a lot. You can use the Popcorn Box Thinlits™ Dies (141473) to substitute, but the other decorations are retired.
I had saved a copy of the card (one of the benefits of never throwing anything out!)… so I took the picture of the Candy Corn Pull-Out Card now! I forgot it had a small Candy Corn, too. The stamps I used retired a long time ago and we don’t have a cool spider web image, even in the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (144610). The Candy Corn images are freehand drawn that I photocopied onto Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie card stock for cutting out.
I’m pretty sure I saved the Candy Corn pattern, but do you think I can find it??? I also think I wrote up instructions for the card, but I put them in a safe place… you know what that means! If I ever find them, I’ll do another post to show you how to make the card. It won’t look the same because it will use current stamps.
In the meantime, I found this recipe for Candy Corn Bark that has three ingredients and three steps. You know how I’m all about Quick & Easy – in this case, so is Betty Crocker! The recipe is through this link, so you don’t have to search for it yourself.
Enjoy National Candy Corn Day and try out the recipe. Then check back here to see the how-to for the Candy Corn Pull-Out Card.
