 Valentine Treat Box and Card

Valentines Day will be here before we know it! Are you ready to create cards and treat holders to send to friends and family? 

I have an idea for you in my post today. A beautiful card and box using products from the new Mini Catalog    

The featured images on my card come from the Lots of Hearts stamp set. There are 4 heart images in this set along with a flower image and long heart border as well as several sentiments that can be used all year long. 

The beautiful foil background comes from the Love You Always Foil Sheets. There are three colors in this pack - Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose and Sahara Sand. I chose the Rococo Rose color. I ran the piece through the Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder before adhering it to my card base. Isn't it gorgeous! 

I decided to use the same design on my treat box. This fun little box is like a matchbox. They are in the new Mini Catalog. 

I filled one of our Clear Envelopes with heart jelly candies and used the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon that I also used on the card and outside of the box to embellish the package.

Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

The gorgeous Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is a free selection from the Sale - A - Bration brochure with a qualifying order. This paper is just dazzling! I absolutely love it.

It is a beautiful mixture of metallic colors in gold, rose gold and silver. It is just stunning and makes amazing cards and other projects. It is a perfect cardstock weight for making boxes.

What's so versatile about this paper is that it can be altered with color! Either coloring in with Stampin' Blends - alcohol markers, or color sponged on using ink.

Isn't this card gorgeous! I used the Stampin' Blends to color the flowers and leaf images on this paper. It comes alive! Just mounted on a piece of coordinating cardstock, adding a simple verse and thin ribbon is all this card needs for the wow factor.

Supplies used :

Another simple design and this time I colored in only a few leaves in the design. I used the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the base of my card which coordinates perfectly with the lines in the leaves I think.

Supplies Used:

For the background on this card I used my sponge brayer and sponged three different shades of blue starting with the lightest, Soft Sky, then Pool Party and finally Marina Mist. This gives a beautiful Ombre look. I punched a flower from one of the designs and layered it onto a piece of Copper Foil Paper which coordinates nicely.

Supplies Used:

For this beautiful design which I found on Pinterest, I used the stripe design in the Springtime Foils pack as a background as is. The color pops from the flowers which come from the Blooming Baskets Bundle, another free Sale - A - Bration choice with a qualifying order. I stamped the basket of flowers onto Vellum Cardstock, colored in with Stampin' Blends and fussy cut the flowers out.

Supplies Used:

The Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is a free Sale - A - Bration selection with a $50 order ( before ship & tax )
