The cards I have to show you today are super cute. I have used the Sweet Treat cups on page 8 of the catalogue. They come in a pack with a dozen sweet treat cups. They are one of things that really grabbed my eye in the catalogue because of the cute factor. It is so easy to whip up a cute card that will be unique at a child’s birthday party. They would also be a cute way to package party favours at a child’s birthday party or a baby shower.
Here’s the first card was a card I made for my niece using the KALEIDOSCOPE Designer series paper from the Summer Mini Catalogue…..
For this card I wanted to create a little sliding door at the back of the card so that my niece could easily get to the lollies.

The view from the inside of the card….
I must admit that due to poor planning on my behalf I found it tricky to get the circles to line up on the card. The sweet treat cups can be used with the NEW 4.4cm circle punch and of course the punch does not reach right into the middle of a regular sized card. In hindsight it would have been SO much easier to create a little door on a card that was smaller because I would have been able to get the punch to reach right into the centre of the card…..but of course I didn’t think of that at the time. As I was so focussed on getting the circles to line up on the layers I was less focussed on getting the petals on the flower evenly spaced (oops!) but I’m sure you still get the idea!
Anyway- when it came time to make the second card for one of my nephews I decided I wouldn’t create a sliding door this time. For this card I just let the sweet images on the TALL TALES Designer series paper do all the work!
I simply cut out the zebra in the hot air ballon and stuck it down on another area of the patterned paper so it was floating above the tree tops. I simply peeled off the adhesive backing on the sweet treat cups and put it in place on the balloon in the image! Super easy!
