Workshop Cards & Treat Holders

I had a workshop last weekend and decided to come up with a design that could be used for Valentine's Day or easily changed for any other occasion. This is the card and treat holder I came up with.

I used the En Francais background stamp from Stampin' Up, it was stamped in Sahara Sand onto Kraft cardstock, then I sponged the edges to give it an aged affect. I sponged the heart as well which was cut out using a die and my cuttlebug. The sentiment was from the Whimsical Words stamp set out of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. Some Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon finished it off. The treat holder can hold a snack size chocolate bar (I used Kit Kats and Freddo Frogs). It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but the treat is stapled into the treat holder at the top then the front panel is added to cover the staple.

This was the other version that can be used for any occasion. I used the Polka Dot background stamp and Versamark to add some detail to the cardstock. Simple but cute.
