A Butterfly Hello

I love the little treat container I made yesterday, but I realized that a lot of my stampers aren’t as thrilled about treat containers as I am.  Since so many people are watching their sugar and fat intake and a lot of my stampers don’t have children, they don’t really eat or hand out sweets.  So…Back to the drawing board.  I decided to create a card that kind of mimicked the container.  Meanwhile, the other people in this house are thrilled, because now there’s a bag of candy up for grabs.

Stamps:  Fresh Vintage, Elementary Elegance; Ink:  Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Baja Breeze classic; Peach Parfait, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz stampin’ write markers; Paper:  Baja Breeze, Whisper White card stock; Everyday Enchantment designer series paper; Other:  Everyday Enchantment ribbon and brad pack, Fancy Flower punch, Labels framelits, Adorning Accents edgelit dies, sponge, stampin’ dimensionals, Big Shot

This uses basically the same materials as the treat container, and it coordinates well enough that I can send the card and the container as a gift to someone special.

So here’s a random thought.  I was doing laundry the other day, and the static electricity was causing everything to stick together.  I kept thinking, “I know I put a dryer sheet in here; I wonder where it is…”  Finally, I saw it.  I had hung one of Mike’s shirts up to keep it from getting wrinkled and the sheet was stuck to the side of the shirt.  I’m thinking they’re not the best I could have bought.

Tomorrow I’ll have another workshop project.  I think it will be a really cute little bookmark card (another idea from Stampin’ Success).  My stampers may not be “into” treat containers, but most can always use a bookmark.  Even though several have e-readers, I think they still have enough “real” books around their houses!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

    ooooh, pretty! I don’t have Fresh Vintage, but I’m thinking of CASEing with Just Beleive. Great idea to make a card that matches the container!
