Make A Card With Design A Treat

Today’s post is showcasing the Design A Treat Bundle. This little trinket or treat box can hold a pretty charm or a dark chocolate truffle! Whichever you prefer! I put it together in less than a minute with the treat box die, my bone folder, and two small pieces of Tear & Tape. I also “designed” a matching card using the Dies and the Design A Treat stamp set.

My inspiration for both the card and treat box came from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. This Bundle is on page 61. With the Dies, you can easily create a bunch of bats for Halloween treats, lots of reindeer for Christmas and Holiday goodies, a bunny for an Easter celebration, and all year flowers just to say “thinking of you!” I decided on the flowers today. You can easily duplicate this card in a Fall theme by creating Crushed Curry flowers with Soft Suede in the center. Fun, right?

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • It looks busy, but once you get the cuts done, putting it together is fast.
  • Cut the Basic White card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ on the longer side.
  • The Crushed Curry card layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″.
  • The patterned paper layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″.
  • Attach the card layers to the card base, as shown.

Die Cuts

  • Here’s a die cutting tip for this card. I used my Mini Cut & Emboss Machine and scraps of Crushed Curry, Carden Green, Bermuda Bay and Poppy Parade cardstock.
  • In one sweep, I die cut the Poppy Parade flower, Crushed Curry stitched Circle and Garden Green reindeer antlers (these became my floral sprigs).
  • My second sweep through the die cutting machine included the Bermuda Bay and Basic White cardstock flowers.

Assembling the Elements

  • Run a thin line of glue along the straight side of one of the half flowers. Attach both flower sides together.
  • I punched the flower center circles with my 1/2″ circle punch. (That was quick and easy).
  • I cut 3/4″ strips of Bermuda Bay and Basic White cardstock to create my sentiment banner layers.
  • The Poppy Parade cardstock strip is 3/8″ x 3 1/4″.
  • The Bermuda Bay cardstock strip is 1/4″ x 3 1/2″.
  • Stamp the Basic White strip with the lined stamp from the Design A Treat stamp set and Poppy Parade ink. Cut this strip the length of the stamped image.
  • Wrap some Linen Thread around four of your fingers a few times, remove from your fingers and crunch the center to create the bow. I adhered mine in the center with a large glue dot.
  • Assemble the sentiment banner layers as shown below.

  • Start with the Poppy Parade strip, add a line of liquid glue along the top, attach the Bermuda Bay strip.
  • Add a thin line of glue along the top of the Bermuda Bay strip, then attach the stamped strip.
  • Stamp your favorite sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto a Basic White strip cut 1/2″ x 2″ and attach the strip on top of the Bermuda Bay and Poppy Parade strips as shown.
  • Attach the Linen Thread bow to the back of this sentiment panel you just created.
  • Adhere the sentiment strip to the card front as shown with Dimensionals.

The Big Finish

  • Attach the die cut circle to the card front as shown.
  • Attach the flowers to the circle as shown, then cut the antler flower sprigs and slide them under the flowers as shown.
  • Attach the assembled sentiment layers along with the Linen Thread bow, as shown.

Soooo, cut some layers, put your cutting machine into high gear, add some Linen Thread and create something cute and fun.

… the only limitation is your imagination!

A Christmas Scottie Is Always Loved

Today, I’m showcasing the Christmas Scottie Bundle, which includes the Christmas Scottie stamp set and the Scottie Dog punch. Along with the Bundle, my inspiration for today’s card is from a card in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure that featured the Ringed With Love Designer Series Paper. The DSP pack is FREE with a $50 product purchase.

Poppy Parade and Ming Macaton is a fun color combination. Paired with the Kraft cardstock and Crumb Cake, I think it’s super cute!

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • I cut the Mint Macaron card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.
  • I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock 3 3/4″ x 5″. We can replace this with a Crumb Cake layer. I thought the Kraft layer would add a little interest.
  • The Poppy Parade layer is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″.
  • The patterned paper layer is 3″ x 4 1/2″.
  • Stamp the images as shown above with Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade ink onto a Basic White cardstock scrap.
  • Fussy cut the Scottie dog, and the small ribbon bow.
  • Punch the large ribbon bow using the Scottie Dog Punch.
  • I stamped the ribbon image onto the white cardstock so you can see it. I stamped this image directly to my card top layer once I had my layers and elements in place. It’s a photopolymer stamp that is bendable. You’ll notice, I adjusted it a bit before I inked it.
  • Attach the cut layers to the card base.
  • Add the card elements as shown.
  • I attached the plaid blanket image first with liquid glue, then attached the dot with Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment layer measures 3/4″ x 2 1/4″. It’s slipped under the dog paws and attached with glue.
  • I stamped the ribbon last with Poppy Parade ink.
  • I had some Poppy Parade Resin Dots in my embellishment stash. I thought they worked well for a little embellishment.
  • The inside of the card is a Basic White card layer. The patterned paper strip is 1/2″ x 5 1/4″.
  • I attached the punched bow to the bottom corner.

So, stamp an adorable Scottie Dog, add some punched and stamped ribbon, a cute plaid blanket and create something lovable!
