SU Sweet Treat Cups Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

My sister in law just dropped off my latest SU order today. I ordered some Sweet Treat Cups as well as the Serene Snowflakes stamp set. I couldn't wait to try out the sweet treat cups and I had the perfect opportunity. We are having a birthday party for my other sister in law so I thought I would try and create a birthday card for her and use the cups as well.

For this card I followed the instructions on the "Stampin-Style" blog where he gives instructions on how to create a card with a trap door so your hard work doesn't have to be ruined to get the candy out of the treat cup.

The inspiration for my card came from the new holiday mini catalogue on page 20. The card is complete except for the missing treats that I need to run out and get. I am planning on filling the treat cup with pink and brown smarties to stick with my colour scheme.

Here is the recipe for my card:

Paper: Stampin Up Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, and Pink Pirouette. The tag was cut out of a DCWV stack (not sure which one)

Ink: Stampin Up Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Ribbon from my stash, SU Bigz Top Note Die, SU Scalloped Edge Punch, Mini Mongrams Cricut Cartridge, Pooh Font Cartridge for the sentiment, Design Studio to weld sentiment together, Creative Memories circle cutter and blue blade to create 1 3/4" circle, SU Sweet Treat Cups

I had a lot of fund creating this card and encourage all of you to try the new sweet treat cups! Lots of fun.

Happy Crafting,

Stamps: House Mouse stamp, Studio G dollar stamps for sayings
