Emma's Throwback Thurs. Challenge - Episode 209

The challenge was to use the Wild Card or Just Because Cricut Cartridge and to emboss somewhere on your project. I used the baby rattle from page 76. (It is the shift-icon button) I used the real dial size button at 5.12 inches and welded a 2 inch circle to the rattle using my gypsy. (When I do it again I will add a 2.5 inch circle so that it fits better.) I then cut a 2.5 inch scalloped circle to go on the back of the favor to hold the candy in. (again I'd make it a 3inch scalloped circle) I used the 1 3/4 in stampin up circle punch to make room for the treat cup to fit in. If you don't have that punch you could center a 1.75 inch circle real dial size in the center of the rattle, to make room for your treat cup. I then filled it with pink and blue jelly beans but you can add whatever your favorite candy is. The treat cup is only 1/2 inch thick, so the smaller the candy the better it will fit.
Before I put my scalloped circle on I stamped the back with My Creative Time - Turn that Frown Upside Down Stamp set (you have made my day) and then heat embossed it with rainbow embossing powder. There was a bow that was cut out from the cricut image but I used my scissors and cut it off and added my own white satin ribbon around it.
The products I used are:
Wild Card Cricut Cartridge
Stampin Up - Regal Rose and Bashful Blue Card Stock, Treat Cups and 1 3/4 inch circle punch.
My Creative Time - Turn That Smile Upside Down - "You have made my day."
Stash - Rainbow Embossing Powder
Joann's - Heat gun
Wal-Mart - White Satin Ribbon

Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
God Bless
