Sweet Surprise Cards

I recently did a big clean up and re-organized my scrapbook room. Once I get it all done I feel much better and am able to create again. I love finding older items I forgot I had....some of you know what I mean! I hate that I've forgotten about such wonderful products and want to put them to use rather than let them continue to be forgotten. I can only guess that this happens, because we are thrilled to see and use the new items!!

So I decided to use the older chipboard pieces from the My Originals Sweet Surprises Card Kit. This was a kit that included treat cups to fill with candy and supplied you with everything you needed to complete 3D cards with a box style envelope. Because they are such a thick card when completed I decided to use them as a gift card that I would personally hand to the recipient. Therefore, I made a to/from tag to wrap around the envelope.

For the new product, I chose some Fundamental Papers from the Whimsy and Adventure Assortment! I love these papers, they are certainly one of my favorite new items and was just the touch of pizzaz I needed for these sweet cards!

Here are all 4 cards~

lastly, just the tags~

The Sweet Surprises Card Kit is no longer available, but the Paper Fundamentals are. I would suggest getting them in every color, they are simply stunning! Shop online here.

Too, too cute. Great idea to use up the old stuff. I think I will do this for my card buffet. Thanks as always for your inspiration.
