I wanted to give the neighbor girl something handmade for taking care of our little kittens while we were gone to SU! Convention and her mom said her favorite candy is Rolos, so I thought I'd make something to put some of those in and some money for her wonderful efforts. I used the Edgelit Framelits to cut the edges of a piece of 12 x 6 cardstock that I had scored at 5 1/2 and 6 1/2 to form the purse. The inside of the purse that holds the contents is 4 x 10" and scored on each long side at 2" and then folded up and glued inside. I used the same edgelit for the outside piece of Polka Dot Parade paper (this one is Razzleberry) and cut each edge with it to get this design.
I stamped the word THANK with the first Photopolymer stamp set Designer Typeset in Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White cardstock that I had stamped the dotted pennants from Pennant Parade stamp set using Daffodil Delight ink and then punched them out with the Pennant Builder punch and layered them onto Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight pennants. I stamped the "U" using the Morning Post alphabet stamps in Pumpkin Pie onto WW cardstock and punching out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and layering onto Melon Mambo 1 3/8" circle. I added different colors of Itty Bitty flowers and one Silver Glitter one to the "U", and finished them off using Basic Rhinestones. For the handles, I cut 1"x 11" strips of cardstock and stapled with mini staples and covered them with the Large Rhinestones.
Okay, so before I get started on this card...please picture this cupcake with cute little "sprinkles" from a tiny little punch in different colors on top of the cupcake...yeah, TOTALLY forgot to add them before I headed off to Convention...duh! This was one of my Fancy Folds swaps, it is the Wacky Squash Card that I did for a class back in May and had so much fun, that I did one with all new product!
I started with a Smokey Slate card base and added a layer of Co'ordenations cardstock, Crisp Cantaloupe to be exact, and ran it through the Big Shot using the Chevron Embossing Folder and sanding it slightly. I added some Birthday Basics DSP (Did you know that through this month you can buy 3 packs get one FREE!-Contact me if you need to order some!) layered over a strip of Raspberry Ripple cardstock and tied a 1/8" Bermuda Bay ribbon around it. I cut a label from the Deco Labels die in Smokey Slate and punched a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle from Silver Glimmer Paper and layered a 1 3/4" Summer Starfruit circle onto that. I then stamped the cupcake image from the stamp set Sketched Birthday in Basic Gray ink onto Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock and punched it out using the 1 1/4" circle punch and adhered it with a Dimensional and finished off this "tag" with a bow. (LOVE THIS RIBBON!)
Then I stamped the sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday stamp set in Basic Gray onto Very Vanilla cardstock and snipped the edges.
This is the wacky part....I folded up cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card. I love making these cards! And believe it or not, it's easy peasy!
