Party Time Part Three

Hi there,

Yep I’m still posting about my first workshop. Today I want to show you the thank you card and little pressie I made for good friend, very talent stamper and now upline Sam. Sam very kindly provided any supplies I didn’t have and needed to both prepare for, and use for the workshop.

The choccie pack

The card is a different colour version of one I made for an earlier Inkspiration sketch challenge. For Sam’s card I have added an extra layer and omitted the black brads from the two upper corners. The flower was created using one of the Trendy Trees stamps. I first stamped it in Whisper craft ink onto Riding Hood Red cardstock, then dusted with white embossing powder. For the centre of the flower I first inked up the stamp in versamark and then in Riding Hood Red before dusting with clear embossing powder. Then using the 1” circle punch I just punched all the circles out. For more in depth details please go back to my original post. The only other difference is that I used Candy Lane DSP for both panels of the card. Finishing details include lots of piercing, some black gingham ribbon and a black brad.

To accompany the card I bought some very yum chocolates and made a little package to surround them. I cut a strip of Riding Hood Red that was the same width as the choccie pack, then scored it twice at the bottom about 1” apart to make a little base. The cut another strip of cardstock to make the flap that was attached at the top of the back. The flap is secured with an adhesive Velcro dot. I rounded the front of the flap by placing a cup over the end then using my craft knife to follow that guide – it worked quite well!! Some more Candy Lane DSP decorates the bottom of the front and then flap section is decorated with a little scalloped circle element, continuing the Trendy Tree theme. This time I rocked and rolled the tree top stamp, inked in Pink Pirouette, in Riding Hood Red.
