I've almost missed The Paper Players "sweet" challenge this week and I'm just getting in under the wire today. I had one idea to use something sweet on today's card but I went a totally different route. I find myself doing this a lot lately. :)
I just love this card. In fact, I think I'm going to make several more. Crumb Cake and Real Red are two of my favorite Stampin' Up! colors and this card has loads of that starting with the Crumb Cake base. That's topped with a diagonal stripe from Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. The jar is made from Vellum card stock and the mints punched from another piece of DSP from Candy Cane Lane. Once the card was all tied up with Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon the jar was filled with the mints and topped with a bright red lid. The pine bough was almost an afterthought, but I love it!
Inside the card another is another jar of mints...
I filled up a clear candy jar in our den with those good soft mints and kind of forgot about them. That's also the room where our grandchildren play. After they had gone home the last time, and we were cleaning up, my husband told me that he had found mint wrappers hidden all over the place and the jar, it was empty. Some little people had had way too much sugar!
I cannot believe we're at the weekend again. I'm hoping to go apple picking tomorrow if things go according to plan. I hope you have something fun planned this weekend too. - Dawn
