Sweet Treats Tutorial

I have made this beautiful card as it's my God daughters 10th Birthday this friday.  I have used the 'Something Sweet' stamp set by Stampin' Up! together with the 'Sweet Treat Cups'.  I saw this card somewhere in blogland (but cannot for the life of me remember where otherwise I would give you a mention), however I did change it a little.  I do hope that she likes it...

List of products used...
* Cardstock - Real Red, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise & Green Galore (now retired)
* Ink - Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Green Galore (retired) & Pixie Pink (retired)
* Stamp Sets - Something Sweet, Every Little Bit (inside card) & Teeny Tiny Wishes
* Sweet Treat Cup
* Punches - 1 3/4" Circle (treat cup) * Round Tab (tag)

Card measurements...
* 1 x Real Red 8 3/4" x 3 1/4" (folded in half)
* 1 x Tempting Turquoise 4" x 3"
* 1 x Whisper White 3 7/8" x 2 7/8" (card front)
* 1 x Whisper White 2 1/4" x 2 5/8" (sweet treat insert)
* 1 x Whisper White 4" x 3" (inside card)
* 1 x Green Galore (retired) Round Tab Punch

*  Stamp image onto 3 7/8" x 2 7/8"  Whisper White cardstock using Real Red ink.
*  Use the 1 3/4" circle punch to cut out a circle just above the stamped image.
*  Stamp the 'That was so sweet of you' sentiment using Tempting Turqouise ink just above the punched out circle.
*  Adhere this to the piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock, leaving a 1/8" border.
*  Again use the 1 3/4" circle punch to create a circle in the same place.
*  Place this on top of the Real Red cardstock but (do not adhere), leaving 1/8" border, then use the 1 3/4" circle punch to create the last circle.
*  Take the small 2 1/4" x 2 5/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock and randomly stamp using the round sweet stamp using the following ink pads:- Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Pixie Pink (retired) & Green Galore (retired).
*  Stamp the 'Sweet Treats' sentiment onto the Green Galore round tag, then adhere this to the side of the stamped cardstock.
*  Place Stampin Dimensionals around the stamped piece of cardstock and adhere to the Real Red cardstock.  The tab should now pull out with ease.
*  Stamp the 'Wishing you the sweetest day ever' sentiment onto the remaining piece of 4" x 3" Whisper White cardstock and also stamp the little gumball machine in bottom right corner and colour in with the stampin write markers if you wish, I also used dimensional glaze on top of this too.
*  Finally pull out the tab and fill with sweets, oh don't forget to push the tab back!!!
*  I found that this will fit nicely into a 12cm x 12cm square envelope.

Here is the finished card filled with some 'Skittles' sweets - yum yum!!!
