tutorial - Window Candy Card

Good morning everyone. Today, I'm making a just because window card, to give a pick me up piece of candy to a special someone.

Cut cardstock to 6"x12" and score at 5 7/8" and 6 1/8"
Fold at scores. (I use a straight edge to ensure a crisp fold)

Using a circle cutter (this is CM), cut a circle from top left quadrant of front of card

Make another circle to act as a frame, and adhere. Adhere flower, and candy piece (mine is caramel).
Stamp and color your Rubber Romance image. Since the cardstock is flat, a straight color on the present may make the card a bit too flat.
To fix that problem, paper piece the present part. Stamp image again on two printed patterned papers, cut and adhere. Adhere to your card with pop dots. Anchor the entire image with two strips of paper going both sideways and upwards (I am using a paper frill).
The card is a bit top heavy, so it does not stand up well. But that's not going to matter to the recipient, who will eat the candy... :)
