CCMC116.....Got Treats Card Treat Holder




TGIF Peeps!!!! Hope you all had a great week and have some fun weekend plans!! For me, I got a large SU order yesterday and plan on playing with some friends with some of our new goodies!!!

Today I have a fun little card/treatholder to share with you. I made this card/treatholder with the sketch this week on the Create with Connie & Mary Blog. When I looked at the sketch and decided what stamp set I wanted to use I thought my card should be a treat holder, after all the set I used is the fun "Got Treats" set. It is made to co-ordinate with the milk carton die, which I just got in this order, but it can adapt to just about anything, but expect to see some milk carton treat holders in the future.

I made the base of my card with the new in color peach parfait. I cut the base to 5-1/2 inches by 9 inches and scored at 4-1/4 and 4-3/4 inches. This makes the top fold a 1/4 inch wide, to accommodate the treat holder on the inside. I matted my DS paper, from the level 1 6x6 hostess pack with basic black. The Black DS paper is from the Wicked Fun Speciality paper and is mated with basic black too.

I stamped the three pumpkins with peach parfait onto some scrap whisper white and also with crumb cake onto my image panel base. I used my chocolate chip marker to edge the pumpkin stem and swirl a bit to give it an aged feel. I then cut out the three peach pumpkins and mounted them over the crumb cake pumpkins with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped with black stazon and I used the word window and modern label punch to make the sentiment piece. I added some of the fun raven lace trim from the holiday mini. Fun Stuff!!! I then used a few black sticky pearl embellishments from the mini too.

Now the inside:




So cute right? I made the inside little pouch with some basic black, and matted with peach and more of the DS paper. The inside sentiment is also from the Got Treats stamp set. I stamped with black and peach and punched out the black circle with my 1-3/4 inch circle punch. I don't have the extra large scallop punch yet so I had to use my scallop nesties for the black mat. I cut out the words in peach and added over the black with more foam tape. If you need directions for the inside pouch just let me know.




Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
