With Valentine's Day coming I wanted to create something fun for my kids. Also, I recently purchased Papertrey Ink's "Scribble Star" stamp to go along with The Cat's Pajama's "Space Cadet" stamp set. So here is the result - a matchbox candy holder for my space loving son:
Here is a detail of it from the side showing the matchbox fold (and the candy inside!):
I stamped Papertrey's Scribble Star with Versamark and used Stampendous white embossing powder. Then I masked off TCP's Sprinkle's spaceship (love how Alma from TCP names her stamp critters - the cat is Sprinkles) and blended distress inks (Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violets and Salty Ocean) to create the background. Next I stamped Sprinkle's spaceship, heat embossed it, and colored it with Copic markers. I stamped and heat embossed the "Greetings" sentiment, which is from The Cat's Pajamas' Wreath Building set. I added Glossy Accents to the spaceship dome and lights, and added some orange polka dotted washi tape along the bottom for a finishing touch and to hide the staples that hold the candy.
For a video on how to create this treat holder, you can check out Make It Monday at Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink blog (link below).
