Sweet Treats Cards

hello everyone. i haven't posted anything in a week because my dear sweet Papa passed on last tuesday. he was the sweetest and most loving man i have ever known, and he will be dearly missed!
so i treated myself to a little retail therapy on monday and picked up the Sweet Treats cartridge at michaels (along with a BUNCH of other stuff)...i am LOVING this cartridge!!! it is just plain anyhoo...
cupcake card-cut at 5 1/2 inches (fits perfectly in A2 envelope)...i ran the "frosting" through my cuttlebug in the divine swirls folder...then i went over the raised designs with stickles...i think it turned out CUTE...i also ran the heart through in the swiss dots folder...i then pop dotted it and added it...then i added the lil' tag (also cut from sweet treats) and tied it on with a ribbon and voila card done...this one is going to my sailor at sea
ice cream cone-cut at 5 1/2 inches (also fits A2 envelope)...i am THRILLED with how the "cone" turned out!!! i ran it through the cuttlebug on the "netting" fiskars embossing plate COOL HUH?!!! i also ran both "flavors" through in the swiss dots folder...then i pop dotted the strawberry and strawberry top (stacked 2 dots)...tied a bow and DONE!
well i hope you all have a fabulous day...and if you were in need of any enabling...GET SWEET TREATS!!! ;o)
