Test Tube Birthday Card

I used a test tube filled with Skittles and the Best Bot stamp set from Stampin' Up! for a perfect card for a 7-year old boy. The card base is 3 1/2" by 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". I also scored at 9/16" away from the 4 1/4" score line on both sides. Then about an inch from each edge, I cut from score line to score line. This creates the pocket for the test tube.

Test Tube Treats for Patrick's Birthday

I look online everyday for new ideas. I saw the test tubes on Split Coast Stampers and immediately knew I needed them. I printed the sentiment on Bermuda Bay. (I am so sad that this color is no longer available!) The red and bermuda bay were punched with the same size, then offset slightly. Mounted on the test tube (loaded with Skittles) with a dimensional, 25 of these birthday treats were done in no time at all!  Aaron designed and made this project!

Autumn Thanksgiving Center Step Card

I feel the crisp coolness at night, so it must be autumn. I used the brown as the base, using the center step design. Stampin' Up's Tasteful Trim die gave me the scalloped and zigzag pieces. The flourish stamp was topped with Autumn Blessings (printed with the computer) and a ribbon.
