#260 Swirls & Twirls With The Shabby Tea Room

Hi Happy Monday! 
Today, I'm sharing with a new card and cute little "pumpkin treat box" from Cutting Cafe. It was inspired by this week's The Shabby Tea Room photo "Swirls & Twirls". I originally planned on making the gift bag in a lighter orange, so this one was supposed to be my sample. As it turned out, I loved it after all and decided to make a matching card to go with it in the same color.

Here is the adorable treat box. I added some kraft cardstock for the top stem and some leaves from Cheery Lynn Designs Rose Leaves. The little handle is black ribbon with sheer ribbon around the whole pumpkin. I added thin black ribbon around the base and cute little ghosts from "Boo to You" Verve stamps. Lastly, I added an orange glitter rose from Michael's dollar bin

This is the backside of the pumpkin treat box. I added more leaves and some tissue paper fits inside. Its great to give as a small gift or even place on the table for your guests. 

I had fun making a matching card. I printed up a jar from clip art online and fussy cut it out. I used Verve stamps, "boo to you" pumpkins, ghosts and sentiment. The black swirls are chipboard and I inked them with black ink. To resemble the candy pieces in the jar I cut a small paper circle and a a strip of paper just shy of .75 inch wide, then I layered it with twining ribbon. 

 There are a few layers of ribbon and I punched white cardstock with my Martha Stewart puncher. I planned on embossing the orange cardstock, but I didnt like the was it looked, so I kept it plain and added little faux stitching in black. Lastly I added more leaves and an orange rose. 

Here is the inspiration photo for the next two weeks with The Shabby Tea Room!
