The new Holiday Mini has Sweet Treat Cups and envelopes and a stamp set, Sweet Centers to match. How easy is it to include a special little something for the sweet people you want to gift with an unusual card? The cups can be filled with candy or something with less calories like glitter, sparkles, punches or really anything that will fit into the cup.
On this card, I used the Big Shot Flower Folds die and cut out the centers to fit around the cups.
After using the Big Shot and the Flower Folds die to cut the largest flower, I used my paper snips to cut just inside the fold line and remove the center.
Next, I overlapped one of the flower petals and adhered creating a flower ring that will fit easily right over the Sweet Treat cups.
To create a cardstock ring that will cover the layered flowers and make the center look finished, I made 2" circle with my Circle Scissor Plus and punched out the center with a 1-3/4" circle punch.
To finish the flower, I layered the three flower rings using adhesive between each layers to keep them in place. The cardstock ring that I punched out was glued on top to cover the flower. Cut out petals were used as leaves and designer series paper and ribbon embellish the card top. Last, a greeting as added.
This is an easy way to create alot of petals without stamping and making a "sweet" flower card.
