A Valentine Mini

Here is my little Valentine Mini!
I made this to put in my DH's lunch box.
I know it'll make his day when he finds it,
if not make him the brunt of some jokes from the boys!

This little easel card measures 3x3" when closed
I started with a pink 3x6" card base to make the easel.
I cut the front mat 1/4" smaller and embossed it with a
love bird CB folder.
The fancy frame and bird on a branch are free SVG cuts.
I also embossed the frame with a paisley folder and
the bird with swiss dots.
I embellished the rounded front corners with small diamond-like gems.

I added a sentiment in the hidden fold,
cut a red mat and embossed it with "I love you,"
added a white mat embossed with "my lips,"
and added a hint of color with ink.
A finishing touch with the pink ribbon and the matching gemstones,
and my project is complete!

I hope he likes it!
TFL and Happy Valentine's Day to you!
