So the card I made is CASEd from the new Stampin Up Occasions catalog on page 14. I changed a few things, but it is pretty close. I used the Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes Framelits. Don't you just love the Heart cutouts on the edge?? I do not send out many Valentine Cards so I kept it pretty simple. We also will make this card at an upcoming Card Club.
My project using the new Window Box Thinlits Die and Window Shopping Stamp set, along with the Oh So Succulent Stamp set and Succulent Framelits dies. All these iitems are available in the new Stampin Up Occasions Catalog.
Stampin Up has a great video on YouTube showing how to assemble and use the piece of the Window Shopping Framelits. I found it best to watch the video before assembling. It really helps!
I cut 2 pieces of the Window box and then cutout the details. Once I assembled the box I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I added Hershey kisses to it and the little tag that comes with the framelits and the stamp is from the Window shopping set.
I saw on Pinterest a few of the boxes as tealight holders and I wanted to see how that would look on my own. It's beautiful. So I then cut out 2 of each size shape from the Succulent Framelits in Blushing Bride, stamp the tips on both sides, use your bone folder to add a curve to the petals and layer. It's really easy. I then added Wink of Stella to the tips of the flowers, as well as, the cutouts on the boxes, it looks so pretty when the candle reflects on the glitter. It's really hard to see in the pictures. But I asure you, it's lovely!
I hope you enjoyed my card and project. Be sure to leave a comment for my Blog Candy. And click the Next Button to visit Lynn Streifert's Blog and continue with the Blog Hop
