Club Project #1 - Simply Sent Favor/Treat Box

This little treat box was created using a card from the simply sent everyday elegance card set. You can order this simply sent kit or you can earn it for free by placing a minimum $60 order before the end of March. The kit includes 4 cherry cobbler and 4 baja breeze cards with lovely embossing and that beautiful laser cut edge! It also includes 16 self-adhesive tags and coordinating envelopes.

One of our techniques for this month's club was 'kissing'. this is the stamp treatment on the body of the flower (which was stamped with an image from the mixed bunch stampset). First the image was inked with a lighter colour (we used a baja breeze marker) and then it was stamped onto a french background stamp that had been inked in cherry colour and then it was stamped in whisper white cardstock and punched out with the blossoms punch. You can also do this technique without inking the stamp in a lighter colour first and then you would just get the effect of the background stamp on the image shape (great for adding texture!)

The treat box was completed with one of the tags that comes with the everyday elegance simply sent kit which was stamped with a sentiment from the clearly for you stampset. The centre of the flower was stamped in cherry cobbler and punched with a 3/4 inch circle punch and embellished with a pearl jewel. And what treat box is complete without treats? This one contains five chocolates...and since I was out of small cello bags, I used our clear envelopes and cut off the end...and the treatback is tied with the cherry cobbler dotted grosgrain ribbon:)
