This is my very first sneak peek as a member of the SUINK DT, and how sweet it is!
"Sweet Things" is one of two adorable new sets which will be available for purchase tomorrow January 1, 2009 at the Storage Units, Ink & More store.
You can view my "sneak peak" post here along with all the other amazingly-fabu previews the DT has been posting. I just had to share this here as well so that you don't miss this stinkin' cute set!
I started out by making my standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card and I drew my pattern right from the score line of the card base. Once I cut out the basic shape of the cup (through both layers) I cut out the inside of the "handle". I cut out the strip of cream and embossed a bit of the edge with white distress powder to give it a little more texture, and then adhered it to the "cup". This was really very easy and i am happy to share the pattern with you, if you want to try making your own: Now, I have to warn you - this was hand-drawn so it's FAR from perfect, but once you embellish it it won't be too shabby I think! :o)
I used a little "truffle" image (also included in the set) to make my decorative pattern on the cup, and also added other assorted chocolates to embellish the inside of the card!
Here's a picture of the inside of the cup:
So here's to hoping 2009 brings us Peace and lots of "Sweet Things" to celebrate!
