Sweet Citrus Sweet Treat
April 13, 2023
Ready for another Festive Friday challenge? What is the Festive Friday challenge? The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity. An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration. To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery. We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and look forward to seeing what you create.
I chose Kindness sentiment, Gift Tag, Blue, and Mini Treat Package from the Inspo list.
I found these lemon Mentos and knew they would be cute packaged using the Sweet Citrus bundle. The Festive Friday challenge #132 was a perfect time to use them and there is even blue on the label!
The lemons were stamped in Daffodil Delight and then embossed and cut using the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing folder. I still find it a little scary to place the dies in the embossing folder but the results are so good! I love all the details, it looks just like a juicy lemon. The leaves were stamped using Parakeet Party and the flowers in Flirty Flamingo. The sentiment is from the Pansy Patch stamp set. This stamp set and dies will be available in the upcoming 2023-24 Annual Catalog but will not be available as a bundle. If you have wanted this stamp set and dies get them now (by May 2 to save 10%).
The tag behind the lemons is Starry Sky CS and embossed with the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing folder. To carry the Starry Sky color I also used the Starry Sky twine from the 2022-24 In Color Baker's Twine and the 2022-24 In Color Matte Decorative Dots in Starry Sky for the center of the flowers.
The treat bag is a Peekaboo Treat Bag. These cute bags come in both Kraft and white and are food safe. These will be retiring soon so if you like to package little gifties be sure to get them before they are gone.
Thank for stopping by and be sure to check out what the other members of the design team created for this challenge!
