Card Candy

So I'm attending this swap on the 18th with three other friends and I wanted to make something special as little happy presents for each of them. I have been hanging out on the Splitcoast Stampers site and came across "card candy" and thought, heck those are so cute. Little handmade embellishments that can be used on their scrap pages or cards or altered projects packaged in clear envies to look just like something out of the store. How fun!

So this is what I came up with; using SU's Live like you mean it set and some wonderful card stock - groovy guava, certainly celery and really rust. I had fun doing these and can see so much potential as my schedule of crops increases and my scrapping friends all get together, an inexpensive way to use up scraps, give a token gift that is useable and just have fun in smaller doses. DH doesn't understand but that's okay....I don't complain when he's up to his chin in oil paints and solvents and palettes and putty knives.
