Cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock and stamp out the candies, strawberries and doughnuts. On scrap cardstock, stamp koala and bird; color and cut out. Color the images on the panel then fill in with small hearts, dots, and stars from the SSS stamp set. Cut a circle in the upper area of card panel. Place on card base and line up the tree stamp on the left hand side of the circle opening to see where you want it. Stamp the trees. With blending brushes (blue and yellow), lightly blend color for sky. I used what was left on my brushes from a previous card. Color trees.

Add foam tape to the back of the panel and adhere to an A4 card base (premade is fine) with trees stamped and colored on it. glue down bird and with dimensional foam tape on Koala, place In the lower right side of circle.

With a scrap of white card stock, stamp the sentiment in black ink (Gina K Amalgam). Place in lower right corner and upper left corner, overhanging the circle opening.

Add glossy accents over all the candies and anything that should be shiny (chocolate coating, candy, frosting, etc.).

Give it away!

I am a crafter by trade. I focus on Alterations, Design work and Paper Crafting. If you want it made or created, I can pretty much do it. If you want me to teach you, I can do that too. I love to create new things that pop into my head and I enjoy trying other's home-made patterns as well.
