New Challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays - Candy Wrapper - DT card

It's time again for a new biweekly challenge at Fairy Fun Friday and this time the challenge is called Candy Wrapper.....this means that we should like to see you using something which has to do with candy. I decided to alter a package of chewing gum.
I measured the package, cut DP (which is from Abbey Road) and scored the folding lines with my Scorpal. All papers are inked with Cat's Eyes' Robin's Egg. At the front I used Roocat with heart which is for sale here and I cut it with nestabilities Labels Eight. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I wrapped the package and stuck it on the right side leaving one side of the ribbon underneath the package. Around the chewing gum there is also some ribbon so you can pull it upwards. I put doublesided foam under the small Labels Eight to left some space for the ticket. On the left side another Labels Eight on which you can write your sentiment. I added a piece of ribbon with staples. Flowers are made with a Success flower punch and the leaves with the McGill pine punch. The heart of the flower is a pearl made with the Perlen Pen. At the right corner a Quickutz photocorner die.

A close-up with the chewing gum:
This is the back side. I used again the Quickutz photocorner die and embossed it with my dotted Cuttlebug folder. For the green cardstock at the top I used Martha Stewart's doily lace punch.

These are the copics which I used to colour that sweet Roocat.

I hope this gave you some inspiration to join this fun challenge.

Wat een geweldig mooi creatie Margreet. Vol verrassingen en natuurlijk zo ontzettend handig. De papiertjes en accentjes zorgen ervoor dat het vlot, leuk en vrolijk blijft en kan altijd als een aardigheidje of kadootje gegeven worden.
