Treat Holder

I created this fairly large treat container using a new set being released next week by Mark's Finest Papers called Snowman Country. I made the container using a 6X12 sheet of cardstock, scoring and folding and then cut the scalloped oval using Spellbinders scalloped oval die. After inking my stamp with versamark and then elegant eggplant ink I stamped the image onto tissue paper and clear embossed. I then used copic markers to add just a bit of color. Can you see the very light blue around the edge of the snowman to give him that icy look? I glued the image to the inside of the container, folded it up, added the sentiment (another sneak peek from the set Bells on Bobtail) and a bow and there you have it.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to come back next week for the blog hop to celebrate the release of the new sets and a chance to win blog candy!

Or, if you are local, come to the Holiday Boutique Open house and just buy some of my creations. I'd love to see you there!
