Faberge Egg Treat Holders

As I recently mentioned, I'm a bit addicted to sliding treat holders at the moment. Honestly, I can't believe we haven't devoured the chocolate rabbits yet! I think these are also the perfect size for a packet of baby could put a rabbit on the treat holder and then they would be "bunny snacks". I know I always fell for that when I was a kidlet!

I decided to make some using the Faberge Egg digi stamp I bought from Crafty Ann's for my
Easter card, and I can't wait to get my hands on more of her eggs, 60 pence at a time (which is exciting for an American, especially when PayPal does the exchange rate for me)!

I really wanted to show off how easy it is to emboss digi stamps right off the printer. The fool-proof method seems to be to print on Vellum (the Recollections brand letter-sized version works great; they call it transparent but it's vellum) at Photo Paper/Best. It prints a bit slowly, but the ink stays wet long enough for the powder to stick right to it. Here, I used glittered-gold, so there's a rough, glitter texture to it. I wasn't sure how it to stick to the fine details, but I shouldn't have worried! I colored the egg on the back of the Vellum. I'm entering the card in the middle (CU below) into A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #146: Tons of Texture. There're at least 4 textures: the glittered cardstock, the polka-dot embossed white paper, the glittered-gold embossing on the egg and details, and the smooth clear embossing on the sentiment.
I'm submitting the orange & purple ones into
