Card "Create"tions Week 2 Favor

Good morning, Friends! It's Saturday and time to show you my favor for the Create with Connie and Mary Card "Create"tions for all Occasions! This past week I used the Rain or Shine stamp set. I had a great time designing a card set using this set! But the only way to see the cards is to be a subscriber to this special edition. You will also get complete instructions and measurements for each card! And it's not too late to join! Join now and you will still enjoy all of the previous week's cards from all of the fabulous designers!

My favor was inspire by searching the internet for ideas on baby showers. I haven't been to one in quite a while and wondered what people were doing these days. Seems like little favors are given out at wedding and baby showers. I used the sentiment that came with the set but it would be very cute and appropriate to include the name and birth date of the new little one or if doing a wedding, of the special day. I had some of these window tins in my cupboard and decided it would be fun to make a little insert for candy and a sort of belly band. I say "sort of" because it doesn't go all the way around the tin like a typical belly band.

Here is a look at the inside and you can see that I adhered the strip of paper to the inside of the lid. You can also see that I made my insert from vellum card stock and then embossed the top part with the Cloudy Day embossing folder. My candy tin is filled with white beans (didn't have any candy around and I really don't need any - lol). I did use sticky strip to adhere the paper to the tin. The umbrella top was stamped in Daffodil Delight and the handle in Basic Grey. These were carefully cut out and adhered together and then popped up onto the strip. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Grey onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Modern Label punch. I used Pacific Point card stock and a strip of Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper. 

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to get more ideas for favors to make! You will also see which stamp sets were used this past week for our special edition! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
