Happy Friday and thanks for visiting! This week for Fabulous Friday over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we designed projects that feature red, white and blue in honor of the Fourth of July holiday tomorrow.... Happy Birthday, America! I decided to make a fun little chocolate favor to celebrate... do you remember when I made these for Christmas a few years ago for Fabulous Friday? (click this link for a tutorial)
I needed some DSP with pacific point and guess where I found some? In the Pretty Petals DSP stack! It worked great with the real red card stock and I added some whisper white stars cut out with the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack. I think it turned out great! I then added the "celebrate" banner using the And Many More stamp set on a scrap strip of whisper white card stock that I notched with my paper snips. To make it pop a little more off the DSP I rubbed the edges on my real red ink pad.
Here's another view of my favor... all you have to do to get to the candy is untie the bow. Be sure to click the link above for card stock and DSP dimensions for this favor as well as step-by-step pictures. Instead of using a Framelit for this week's project I used a 2" circle punch. Easy-peasey!
For even more card ideas and inspiration with our Stampin' Up! products, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog later this afternoon. Thanks and have a safe and Happy Fourth!!
