Punched Spring Card & treat


punched card & treat box

I love to use punches on my cards and I just adore all the designer paper patterns in the Easter Key Ingredients available at Taylored Expressions so I put together a minimally stamped spring card & treat box together to show you how you can make something real nice real fast!

For my card, I punched all my favorite patterns from the key ingredients with various sized SU! punches over the frosted teal prism cardstock which I faux stitched with my inkessentials pen. I added a quick greeting on a Nestability tag with a few swatches of two glimmer ribbons found in the TE store and two little white brads.

Here’s a view of the inside of the treat box, which I downloaded for free at Paper Addiction. (edited to add-it appears the download is not available anymore, sorry!) Isn’t it cute? I added two Basic Grey snaps to keep it closed. I didn’t get a very good view of the top of the treat box, sorry…I just used a little of the dp on top with the same greeting on a small piece of cardstock tied with more glimmer ribbon.

I’m so excited!! I’m working on new Taylored Expressions projects – the next release is just 9 days away on April 5th but in 7 days the Baker’s Dozen Design Team will have sneak peeks to share with you!

See ya tomorrow for another FUN installment of Taylored Expressions’ Cupcake Challenge!
