How did I make this fun card? Well, its actually pretty easy.  The first thing I did was crimp my night of navy card stock.  This gives the base character.  Next, I stamped my Fishin Around on whisper white with StazOn black.  I then colored the image with Stampin Write Markers.  Next, cut a 3″ x 3″ square.

Fill your treat cup

To fill your treat you will need to pull off the white strip off the outside of the treat cup.  Then fill it up with water.  I used a bottle of water so it was easy to pour.  I also sprinkled a bit of dazzling diamonds in the water.    I then used a glue gun to put a big, thick glob of glue all the way around the edge.  Keep in mind… you want it to be thick so that after it dries your water doesn’t link out.  While your glue is hot put a acyclic piece of over the top which will seal the water in the treat cup.

Hide your treat cup base

Now its time to create the white square to put around your treat cup.  Use your 1-3/4″ circle punch to punch a hole in the center of the 3″ x 3″ whisper white square. This will fit over the top of your treat cup.  I used stampin dimensional around the treat cup so that it would pop up the white… I didn’t want it to lay flat because my plastic was a little warped.  If it looks weird you can layer another square on the top of the first one.  This should do the trick!

Size and Dimensions:

  • 1-3/4″ Circle Punch
  • 3″ x 3″ Whisper White
  • 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Marina Mist

    Love it! I also like how you put the strip of Tangerine Tango behind the white square. Makes the card really pop!

    I love the card and concept, my concern/question is, wouldn’t the paper start to get soggy from the water?

      There is a window sheet glued to water cup so it won’t leak and get the card soggy.
