Chill on your Birthday Set

Isn't one of the fun things about paper crafting the ability to make special things that are perfectly matched together?  I love that aspect of what I do :)  

Today I wanted to show you a cute little birthday set I made around the popsicle theme and our new Flourishes set Pinwheels and Popsicles, I just can't seem to put this set down!  

I made a cute little candy holder box and a popsicle card in my favourite lime green flavour.  First I stamped the popsicles from the set onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink cutting them out with a standard circle Spellbinders shape then framing it out with a Flourishes Classic Kraft  Lacey Circles die.  Coloured up with Copics.  Then for the cute popsicle treat box I used a Silhouette cut file from the store using Flourishes Color Made Easy Pistachio card stock, and then with the same out size and shape made a little mini card to go with it.  Above is the treat box on it's side and below is how the treat box opens and tucks inside the flap.  You can click on these pics to make them larger too.  

For the sticks of the popsicles I traced the rounded shape on the box onto Kraft cardstock then cut out two for the card and then ran them through a woodgrain embossing folder to really give you that stick feel.  

I stamped the sentiment with Memento Pear Tart and on the inside of the card it reads - "Just Chill".  

A very cute little set for the next birthday treat!

After reading this entry and your travel entry, I had to come back here to express my appreciation for something non-choco for summer treats, GD has casin allergy so anything appealing in the non-choco line is wonderment to vary her diet/ menu. Thanks bunches.
