Gingham Card

To begin, take one of the pink gingham card bases, and cut off the section with the rainbow. Trim it down to 4-1/4" x 3" (10.8 x 7.6 cm). Take the grass hill die cut and trim it down to 3" (7.6 cm) in length. Use dimensionals to adhere the grass piece to the bottom of the rainbow, along with the bunny, duck, umbrella, and two clouds. Add five enamel raindrops to the card underneath your clouds.

To create the stamped sentiment, take any extra white layer piece and trim it down into two 1/4" x 2" (6.4 mm x 5.1 cm) strips. Stamp the sentiment onto the label using the Mango Melody Ink Spot. Use glue dots to adhere it to the front of the rainbow image. Finally, use glue dots to adhere the rainbow image onto a pink gingham card front, covering the peek through window. Add some fun die cuts and stamped sentiments to the inside of the card, or leave it as is!

Special Treat Box

To begin, take one of the envelopes and carefully peel back the side flaps. Refold the envelope with the color on the outside, and use Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the side flaps. Score three lines at 3/4" (1.9 cm), one at the bottom, and two on the sides that go all the way up to the top of the envelope. Fold all the score lines back and forth then gently pop open each side to make a wider shape. Secure the bottom triangle flaps using ahesive. (Don’t forget to fill your treat box with something sweet and kind before folding the top flap!) Push the two sides inward and fold down on the prescored line. Secure with adhesive.

Add a ribbon around the package and tie with a bow. Stamp your sentiment from the kit in Memento Ink on a piece of Basic White Cardstock. Stamp the sun image in Daffofil Delight on Basic White as well.

Die cut your sentiment using the Stylish Shapes Dies, and fussy cut the sun. Use the blue gingham card base and cut a 1-3/4" x 2-1/2" (4.4 x 6.4 cm) shape. Layer the plaid square, sentiment, sun, and turtle die cut from the kit on top of each other using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add the tag to your treat package with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Froggy Fun Suite Coordination Card

Cut a 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm) piece of Pear Pizzazz Card Stock. Score in half and fold to make your 3-1/2" x 5" (8.9 x 12.7 cm) card base. Take the green floral paper from the Rain or Shine Suite Collection and cut out a 3-1/2" x 5" (8.9 x 12.7 cm) piece. Then adhere to your card front.

Stamp the frog image from the kit twice and the flower group three times using Memento Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Color in each image using Stampin’ Blends. Stamp a sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink onto a precut paper piece from the Paper Pumpkin kit.

Die cut each of the frog and flower images using the coordinating kit add-on dies (you can also fussy cut if needed). Then die cut the blue raindrop paper using the Layering Diorama Dies. Use the Playing in the Rain Dies to cut out clouds and grass images from Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Cardstock.

Adhere the blue raindrop die-cut paper onto the center of your card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the cloud pieces with the frogs on top to make it look like lily pads. Adhere the grass pieces, then layer flowers on top and make them stand out using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Take a piece of Pumpkin Pie Twine and wrap it around the card and tie off a bow. Finish it off by adding your stamped sentiment on top using Stampin’ Dimensionals!
