This tri-fold was created using Soft Suede Textured card stock, cut at 12" x 4 1/4". It's scored at 3 1/4" and 8 3/4". It folds toward the front and the center piece is a belly band that slides off. Very slick. It opens to reveal a gift certificate for one of my customers.
Sweet Centers (available when the Holiday Mini Catalog sales period begins September 1) is such a versatile set. I have shared the balloon stamp here and you'll soon see the Halloween stamp. For today's project, I used the petal stamp, that you stamp (Crushed Curry), snip out and fit neatly around a Sweet Treat Cup (also available September 1 in packs of 12). Another stamp in the Sweet Centers set is a big heart, with a center spot for a treat cup (perhaps candy hearts, rose petals, fun buttons or beads).
TIP: the 1 3/4" Circle Punch is the perfect cropping tool to add the Sweet Treat Cups. The treat cups have a removable adhesive so they stay firmly in place.
I also want to introduce you to a new Stampin' Up! exclusive Textured Impressions Embossing Folder called Petals-A-Plenty. I used it on the Very Vanilla background. The texture is crisply defined and beautiful. TIP: Imagine this in red for the holidays with a dot of white (Uniball Signo Gel Pen, 115021) in the center of each flower. Mini poinsettia extraordinaire.
