This was another project we did at our monthly stamp club meeting. It uses the stamp set that is in the 2018 Occasions Catalog called Sure Do Love You with its matching Framelits called Lots To Love Box (you can save 10% by purchasing them both in a Bundle). There is also another stamp set in that catalog called Heart Happiness that also matches the Lots To Love Box Framelits. I love it when Stampin’ Up! makes a few things that all go together. It makes paper crafting so much easier.
To make the card I first stamped it in Early Espresso ink on Sahara Sand cardstock. Then I ran it through the Big Shot using a new Embossing Folder called Simple Stripes. I put the cardstock in the Embossing Folder diagonally so the stripes were diagonal instead of straight up and down. Then I stamped both hearts in Cherry Cobbler ink and the banner in Sahara Sand ink. All three of those items have framelits to cut them out. You know I am not one to fussy cut!
The box is super easy to make. I cut out two pieces of Sahara Sand cardstock. Then I stamped the heart and cut out the middle of it using a die. Tear & Tape Adhesive works great to put this box together. Then I tied Whisper White Baker’s Twine around it and added the little heart using the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch. This box would work great to put candy in for Valentine’s Day.
