I used Beate's tutorial on SplitcoastStampers for a Peek-a-Boo treat holder. And I borrowed Lauren's pink and green birdie (from Verve Visual's Anniversary Birds). It was another one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments. But then, I have a lot of those while visiting Lauren's blog.
I stamped the bird in pixie pink, then rolled it in Purely Pomegranate ink. I stamped the sprig in Wild Wasabi then colored the leaves Certainly Celery. The flower is a tiny Sassy Sequin and brad from Queen & Co. I cut all of this out and set it on a copper metal edge vellum tag (no longer available, I think). All of that went on top of a scalloped circle cut with a Nestablities die.
The Purely Pomegranate ribbon is tied onto a Making Memories Cheeky flat clip. The white scalloped edge is cut with Fiskars scissors. I love that I feel free to add dimension to a project like this. I don't normally do too much dimension on my cards so that they'll mail easily. Here you can see a side view.
Here's what it looks like inside the first flap. By the way, all those polka dots stamped so quickly with Papertrey Ink's Polka Dot Basics set. I adhered another (white) Nestablities die cut and punched with a 1-3/8 inch circle. I added a few more Sassy Sequins too.
Since this is for a fellow stamper, I filled the treat holder with a little baggie of cheapie imitation Dew Drops (from Michael's candle aisle) instead of using chocolate. Because stampers don't like chocolate, ya know? LOL.
