Sprinkled Gift Set - For Whimisical Wednesday Blog Hop


Hello everyone :)

Today the Whimsical Wednesday design team is being introduced!  We are having a blog hop to celebrate.  The upcoming challenges will be so much fun, so be sure to check back often so you can play along and win some awesome prizes.

For the hop today you will start at Whimsical Wednesday.  So if this is the first you're hearing of the hop head on over there to get started.  The Kraft Outlet is sponsoring today and you won't want to miss out on your chance to win a $20 gift certificate.  They are also offering a 10% discount to all the hoppers when you enter BLOGHOP at checkout.  Prairie Bird Boutique is also offering a bundle of Shabby Crinkled Ribbon for a lucky hopper.

If you're already hopping along you should have arrived from Roberta's Blog.

So, onto my project details:

Click on the photo to see it enlarged for detail.
My card is an unusual size.  It's 10 inches tall, and it's 4 and 1/4 inches wide when folded.  Basically I folded a full 8 and 1/2 by 11 sheet in half the long way, and cut an inch off the bottom.  I was going to use the full sheet, but I felt this size fit my image a little better.

The ice cream sundae was cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge at 10 inches. 
The glass is cut from a really cool paper that is sort of pealized and it's a lavendar color. I added some Diamond Stickles for an accent. 

The pink layer is embossed with the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug Folder.

The brown layer is completely covered in Glossy Accents and I added real sprinkles.

The top piece of whipped cream was embossed with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder.  There was a cherry in the original design, but I decided not to use it.

I had cut the banner along the bottom, and I made it wavy by curling it around a pencil.  The sentiment on it is stamped from a Hero Arts set called Cupcakes.


This box was cut from Tie the Knot at 8 inches.

All I did to embellish it was add little dots of Glossy Accents and put real sprinkles over them.  It did take a little time and patience, but I think it's a fun little detail that makes this project unique.

If you're ready to continue the hopping fun please head on over to Cathryn's Blog.

Hi Amber~ I am a fellow design team member & wanted to stop by to support you during the hop. Can I just say how stinkin' cute your card & box turned out. I love the detail of the sprinkles on both, the unique size of the card, the embossing, the scalloped edge on the box...just great. This screams spring fun to me!
Crafty best wishes,
