Cheers Card

Trim the Moody Mauve label to 2-1/4" x 1-1/2" (5.7 x 3.8 cm). Stamp the sentiment in Copper Clay ink on the Moody Mauve label. Stamp the cup image in Copper Clay ink on the Very Vanilla label.

Adhere the Very Vanilla label to the top of the Moody Mauve label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie the twine around the labels.

Adhere the labels to the card using adhesive dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For an even more colorful card, you can adhere two cards together so there’s a scene on the outside and the inside. Adhere a small piece of light-colored cardstock on the inside to stamp on or write a message on.

Happy Birthday Treat Pouch

Open the envelope and score 1/4" (6.4 mm) from the side flaps (toward the center of the envelope) and 1/4" from both sides of the bottom crease.

Adhere a 5" x 4" (12.7 x 10.2 cm) piece of Moody Mauve Cardstock to the inside.

Adhere the sides of the pouch using a strong adhesive such as Stampin’ Seal.

Cut a piece of Boho Blue Cardstock to 3" x 3/4" (7.6 x 1.9 cm). Angle one end and pierce a hole in the other end. Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink, then sprinkle with white Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using the Heat Tool.

Fill a cellophane bag with a treat, then place it in the pouch and close it.

Thread the twine through the stamped label and the compass die cut, then wrap it around the pouch twice and tie it in a bow.

Adhere the label and die-cut compass to the pouch using adhesive dots.
