CSS Release-Day 6

The Collection 4 release continues today at Clear and Simple Stamps with the introduction of the new Toppers and Favors stamps and die sets.  Everything you need to dress up your treat packages and create fabulous party favors is found in this collection!

These stamps and dies aren't just for party favors, though.  I used the Favor Flags stamp set and the coordinating Favor Flags dies to make a fun card featuring a prize ribbon as the focal image.  The ribbon tails are made from a pair of red Favor Flag die cut strips.  The ribbon center's made with a pair of layered circles cut with dies from the Shapes:  Circles set.  I added a red star to the center and the "celebrate" sentiment stamped on another banner cut with the Favor Flags die set.  While I was making this card, I was excited to find that the star I used on this card is a perfect fit for one of the star dies in the Shapes:  Stars die set!

To go along with the card, I used the new Wrap-a-Round stamp set and Wrappers dies to make a flip top box to hold 4 Hershey's Nuggets--yum!  You can find a downloadable PDF template for the box here as part of Paper Craft Planet's 3D Tuesday challenge.  I made the box from Trendsetter Blue cardstock and assembled it with CSS's Simple Adhesive, then decorated it with stamps from the Wrap-a-Round set and a banner die cut made with the Favor Flags die set.  I used the same stamps to decorate the wraps for the nuggets that I cut with the Wrappers dies.
