If you haven't had a good look at the Shake & Celebrate bundle from the 2016 Holiday catalogue, you really should. It is such a versatile set with so many possibilities. You might have already seen my shaker cards and tea light tent cards using this set. Today I have made some mini treat bag cards. As you can see I got onto a bit of a roll!
All of my cards are just a variation on the one basic design. I started by using the mini treat bag thinlits with the cake section cut out from the front before adhering together. Then I just added a card inside and decorated in different ways.
This Floral Boutique designer washi tape was the perfect width for the cake layers. I lightly marked my insert with pencil so that I could accurately place the tape. This stamp set has a variety of sentiments and many of them fit into the cut out sections such as the 'celebrate' that I have used here.
From a cake to a tree! I was going to decorate this tree with baubles from the set but I decided it looked better plain. Very Vanilla cardstock embossed using the Softly Falling TIEF adds an elegant touch.
I simply wrapped gold metallic thread around the This Christmas DSP before adhering to the mat. It is a bit hard to capture the sparkle but the gold looks great - take my word for it! On the back of the insert I have stamped a message from the set but completely forgot to photograph it for you.
By turning the cake upside down it can become an ice cream. I admit it is a bit out there but I think it would be a good child's card. The Swirly Scribbles thinlits make great scoops of ice cream and the cherry on top is the swirl from the middle of the small swirl.
I accidentally placed the cake upside down for the 1st attempt of my navy and white card so instead of tossing it in my reject box I turned it into a flower pot. The pot is stamped on the card insert. I placed the blank insert into the treat bag and lightly traced around the cut out shapes so that I could accurately stamp the 'pot' and have it line up. To give it a more pot-like proportion I have covered the bottom piece with burlap ribbon and the top with some of the flowers.
