I finally finished my dear hubby's valentine...and not a day too soon!
I usually give him a "surprise" to take to work, so I will
have this in his car tonight and it will be his special something for tomorrow.
I started with a bright red card stock for the base and folded
it into the shape of an easel card (my favorite!)
Starting with a pink mat, I rounded the corners, and then added
an embossed white mat with some inking to bring out the images.
Followed by a red paper heart doily, I added a real box of chocolates!
This is a small Russel Stover brand with 5 pieces of candy inside....so much fun!
After cutting the hearts from Sweethearts,
followed by an embossed scalloped circle from Winter Woodlands,
I added a computer generated sentiment on a hand-cut banner
to complete the card front.
This will actually stand up nicely without causing a problem!
I always my personal sentiment to the inside flap -
but the whole sentiment states:
Being married to you is like opening a box of chocolates /
Each day new and exciting and full of surprises
The inside mat is adorned with a Close to my Heart stamp,
while the bottom one is decorated with a stamp from Stampendous.
The sentiment framing is from Art Nouveau and the glitter papers make it sparkle.
A touch of ribbon and this gorgeous card is complete!
Everything will go in this little lunch bag.
I have to admit, I didn't take much time decorating this,
but it's all about the treats inside this time......
not the wrapper!
Nestled inside Hubby's treat bag along with his card,
are these "big smackers!"
Hand-made candy by me with love......
one is peanut butter and the other is white chocolate.
Happy Valentine's Day, my love!
I will be entering this in the following challenges:
