Default Card help! Red Hot Candy or crystal effects?

I know the subject probably threw everyone off..lol.
I have been asked to make a card for a friend at work, she wants the card to says, "I've got the *hots* for you"..probably on the inside. I was thinking of either doing a shaker card, with red hots inside of the window, or using red paper, with crystal effects to make it look like red hots and then having them on the front of the card. anyone have any suggestions of which would look better or work better? Any other suggestions I could do instead, with the same message on the inside?

Thanks!

I would do the shaker with redhots in it because I'm not sure that the recipient would know what the dots of Crystal Effects were meant to represent.

I would worry about moisture getting to the red hots candy and then smearing the red everywhere. What about "heart" confetti? Maybe some "XOXO" confetti? Might be quicker than CE'ing a bunch of paper and waiting for it to dry.

You could always 'seal' the red hots with CE to avoid the moisture issue?!

Hmm..I don't have any of those things. I wanted to make it tonight to give tomorrow. If it helps, it is not going to be going through the mail. I planned on trying my first shaker card with it, using fun foam to pop it up? I thought I read this somewhere. I would have no idea what to put on the window, or the background.
The inside will say,
"I have the *hots* for you."

I agree about the red hots getting moisture and smearing. Why not make an envelope type card containing a cello bag filled with red hots. That way they get the idea but the red hots can actually be eaten if they would like but it still apprears to be a card. Just an idea.

yes! I do have a cello bag (well, small baggie, that can be filled). How do I make an envelope type card?

if you had more time you could make the red hots out of polymer clay.

Default Here's what the card looks like!

After talking with my mom a bit and telling her what I wanted she suggested a pocket card, with a window cut out of the front to show the red hots. Here is the link to what the card looks like done:

Hopefully these links work. If not, please go to my directory, they are labeled red hot outside and red hot inside.
