Pebbles Inc - Father`s Day Treat

The colors in the Americana collection remind me of old vintage Coca-Cola and I thought this inspiration would be a great place to start for a little Father’s Day card and treat. I found a really neat glass cup shaped like a pop can in the dollarstore and made a shape card that mimicked the same style of can.

Since the initial can card I made was fairly plain, I decided to add some interest and detail using some  of the fun elements that match the American Collection, like the printed cardstock shapes. I used some stamps from Jaded Blossom as part of my sentiment then added ‘Pops’ to the bottom with the super sparkly crimson thickers.

Using dies from My Creative Time, I cut out two stars from the 6x6 paper pad and used a clothespin to hold the stars together with a bow.

I thought it would be really fun to fill my matching cola can cup with coke bottle candies.

I used some cone shaped treat bags, also from Jaded Blossom, filled them with candies and tied the bag at the top using some hemp twine and two more stars cut from patterned paper.

I hope my project using Americana has sparked some inspiration for a gift for one of the dads in your life! Happy crafting!
