Treat Card Box

Cricut Expression, Cricut Design Studio, TreatBoxCard_ScrappinCookie cut file, Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge, Doodlecharms Cartridge, Storybook Cartridge, Bazzill 'Berry Blush' 'Carob' 'Red Devil' Cardstock, The Paper Company Cardstock(white), Cloud 9 'Be Loved' Collection, Valentines Cards I WordArt, Ferrero Rocher Chocolates

Since I first saw this style of card on Becky's blog - Inking Idaho, I've been meaning to try it. I finally got a chance to create a cut file for the card and just in time for Valentines.  I think this is a perfect little gift set. You basically get 2 for the price of 1. One half is a card and the other is a sweet little treat. Fill the box with your candy, chocolate or gift of choice.

The treat box card is designed using the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge. The card portion measures 3" x 5" and holds a 3.75" tag, also from Plantin SchoolBook. The treat box measures 1.25" x 5" and holds 4 Ferrero Rocher truffle chocolates. It can also big enough to several pieces of Hershey Nuggets, Lindt Chocolates, and other candies. The cut file contains 3 different versions of the card. For this one, I used the "Treat Box Card - Plain" tab.  To see the different versions of the card, stay tuned.

I adorned the card with the "Heart;Shadow" from the Doodlecharms cartridge embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and the "Marquee2" from the Storybook cartridge. I used a wordart sentiment from Elegant WordArt by Bethany to finish the card.
