These 3 x 3 inch valentine cards were made with the large heart from the Wavy Hearts Die Set. Before I used the die cut I straight stitched around the edges with a machine and glued it to the card base. The die has small position guides that created a couple holes, but not to worry, I grabbed my eyelet tool and just made a few more!

The sweet word phrases are from the Twitterpated set. I stamped them on some scraps of white cardstock and trimmed around it and added a tail.  It was glued through the heart window, tied and glued down with a twine bow around the banner to finish off the front.


Now that the front of the card has a window it left little room for a personal note on the inside, so I fixed that with a coordinating color circle scored 1/4" in on one edge to create a hinge. Now you can lift it up and write your sweetie a note! I added a punched out embellishment from the scraps of pattern paper I used on the front.

My next project I couldn't stop myself from buying disposable shot glasses from the local party goods store, they are just the right size for treats!


I used the Wavy Hearts Die on some Pebbles With Love paper and stamped Happy Valentine's Day from the Twitterpated Stamp Set in Onyx Black. I sprinkled glitter onto Glossy Accents around the edges of the hearts. Once that was dry I punched a hole for attaching to the treat jar with some twine. 

The collar was made with a nestabilities circle and scallop circle. I cut through to the center and wrapped it around the cellophane covered treat overlapping a few scallops to glue together and make a cone shape. I dotted some Stardust Stickles on the scallops for some bling.



Now you're off to one more hop with uber talented Betty!
