I couldn't remember exactly how she made hers so I modified mine. I think it's similar.I also added glitter to her halo and dress, and I added hands. I drew her face on.....Sorry Karen I just couldn't use the tiny punched pieces for her face (Karen had punched her eyes with the 1/16 punch and her mouth with the 1/8 punch-I just don't have that patience to use the tweezers to put them on).
But all in all I think she came out quite cute. I put her on a small 3x3 card. Thanks Karen for showing us and for giving us the supplies to make our own!

Scroll down for Tutorial Tuesday-it's super fun and easy!!!
To make the box you'll need 2 rectangle pieces of cardstock or DSP (I'm using Parisian Summer DSP that is cut to 5x7). You'll also need a ruler, pencil, scissors, a bone folder and sticky strip (I'm using snail for mine but I would recommend sticky strip if you're going to put a gift in it).
QUICK TIP: Your 'x' will be on the inside of your box. If your using DSP like I am make sure you figure out which side you want showing on the outside and inside.

For the boxes I used acetate and our rub ons. The box came together so quick. and it was so cute with the brownie inside! To make the box you'll need a 4.5x8.5 piece of acetate. Score it at 2,4,6,8, use the 1/2 inch tab to glue it together. For the bottom and the lid I used a 4x4 piece of cardstock and DSP, score 1 inch on all the sides and cut the tabs and assemble it. Glue the acetate in the bottom and place your lid on top. Done, quick and easy.
- Line medium sheet pan with a 13 inch piece of parchment paper, lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Prepare brownie mix according to package. Pour batter into pan. Bake 30 minutes until tooth pick comes out with moist crumbs attached. Remove from oven cool for 20 minutes or until slightly warm.
- Cut off straight ends of candy canes to form 4.5 inch sticks. Place tops in ziplock bag and crush.
- Using medium scoop, scoop brownies into 24 rounded scoops. Roll brownie scoops into smooth balls. Insert candy cane sticks into center of balls, mounding brownie around the stick.
- Melt almond bark in microwave. Spoon over each brownie ball, turning to coat completely. Allow excess bark to drip off. Dip in crushed candy canes or sprinkles. Let stand upright on a piece of parchment paper until set. Place in mini cupcake liners.
Thanks for looking see you tomorrow for tutorial Tuesday!

This stamp set is called Puns from the Past and I knew right away when I saw this image that I had to sew on the card. I really like the way this card came out. It's very cute in person. I inked around the edges of the image to give it an aged antique look.

To do this technique you'll need shaving cream. Make sure it's shaving cream not the gel, it won't work with the gel kind. You'll also need a couple of classic reinkers(for this cards I'm using rose red and cameo coral). It's best to only use a few colors, if you have too many colors when mixed together it just gets too messy and the colors get muddy together. You'll also need something to put the shaving cream in. Our powder pals are great for this technique but if you don't have one you can also use a SU stamp case for it. I'm also using a popsicle stick to blend everything together. It's also helpful to keep a few paper towels handy, since this does get a little messy.
Press your cardstock into the shaving cream mixture and lightly press down. Lift up and use the popsicle stick to scrap off any shaving cream stuck the the cardstock. Use a paper towel to remove any extra shaving cream.
