U R Sweet Gumball Card


I wanted to participate in the Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time.  She challenged us to use either Wild Card or Just Because Cards and to use a stamped sentiment.  I used Just Because Cards to cut out this fun little gumball container.

I used acetate for the main part of it, and I inked around it with White Staz On.  The lid is made with mirrored cardstock.  I kind of wanted to have some Valentine colors for this one so the gumballs are red, white, & pink.  I covered them in Frosted Lace Stickles.

The paper is by DCWV - from the Nana's Kids stack I believe.  The ribbon was a random $1 bargain.  The stamp is from SP & Company's Candy Hearts set.  I rounded the corners with the 1/2 inch setting on my corner chomper and did some doodling with a Stampin' Up Marker.
