Sweet Treats...CR84FN40 week #2 47

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 15, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , ,


Hi there! Hope you are all having a super weekend! I'm here to share a little gift set that I made for the second week of the CR84FN40 Color Challenge using a few new Waltzingmouse Stamps that were just released yesterday!
I combined various images from Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Christmas - Fillers to create this treat card and tag. I couldn't resist filling the little candy jar that I have that matches Claire's stamp so well :)
I embossed the polka dot lid using silver embossing powder and filled the jar with yummy peppermints. To add a bit of depth, I used the masking technique when stamping the candy. HINT: a 1" circle punch makes for a perfect mask to coordinate with the larger mints :)
I'm lovin' the pattern of the Sizzix embossing folder that I used on this card and that fun teeny scalloped border made using the Spellbinders Classic Triple Scalloped Edgeabilities die:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the fun Deconstructed Sketch challenge:
