I have a card a couple of sweet treats to show today.  For my card I am using Verve's Meditations stamp set along with Verve's Wavy Heart  and Flag It (corner detail) dies.  I finished with a Verve's Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection seam binding bow in Cotton Candy.




The next item I want to show you is a quick little sweet treat that is super simple  to make.  I just love Verve's Remember This stamp set for its versatility.  Every time I see this wonderful little sentiment that comes in the set,  I always think of Tootsie Rolls.  I just knew I had to come up with something that included this sweet treat.  

First of all, I used Verve's Banner Bundle die set.  I used the largest die and cut it out twice.  I ink the larger frame from Remember This using Memento Cocoa ink.  I stamped both banners for a finish look front and back.  I scored each frame at a 1/4" across from straight edge side.  I used scor-tape and overlap one side to the other to create the gusseted top.  I stamped the front with the "THAT'S how I roll" sentiment in memento rhubarb ink.  I  added a sparkly gold glittered card stock star using Verve's  Starry die.  

To add the tootsie rolls to the inside I just put a 1/2" strip of scor-tape to inside and place the candies directly onto it.  There is enough room on inside top flap to add a personal note.   

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  
Next on the hop is Karen!
