Pilin' On the Food/Drink

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Food/Drink. We're sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs. The artist, Heather, has so many cute food & drink related images in her great collection.

I used Lil Sweetie's Latte to make my first Twist Gate Fold card.

I attached the sentiment (Lynette Anderson Taylor) with a glittered brad so that it also works as a closure. I made the tags with decorative scissors. The inside sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set.  I put a white message section on the back panel.

The burlap-patterned papers are from Recollections/Michaels. I inked them with bronze chalk ink. I colored the image with Copics, and used heat-activated puff paint on the cupcake.
