Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Today is the February OSAT Blog Hop where we are creating projects with love or Valentine’s Day theme. Below are links to all of the blogs in this Hop, showing more ideas. I have chosen to create a card and matching gift box with January’s Paper Pumpkin stamp set and the Petal Passion DSP. The colors in the project are inspired by the candy that fills the box. Fun and yummy colors for Valentine’s Day.
Be Mine card & gift box
measurements for this project
For the card:
Whisper White Thick card stock card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Petal Passion DSP colored panel: 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ & another at 1 inch high
Whisper White & Basic Black card stock scraps for die cut hearts
For the box:
One Clear Tiny Treat Box (finished size is 2″ square) + 1 inch strip for a band around the box
Whisper White & Basic Black card stock scraps for die cuts
Petal Passion DSP
Some projects start out as a success and finish up with a smile but others tend to take a few detours.
Such is the case of this card. It crash landed in my scrap bin twice before the right idea came to me that would work well. I ended up pulling other bits from the scrap bin together to create this simple project. The colored panel is from a piece of Petal Passion DSP that I colored with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. I chose candy colors for the flowers with simple coloring. Another piece of paper from the same packet gives the stripes and transitions the coloring to the white space.
Matching gift bag
I’m a big fan of easy to assemble treat packaging. The Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are easy peasy. Something as easy as assembling the box and surrounding it with a one inch strip of patterned paper is enough to make it customize the project for any occasion. Add some special Sale-a-bration ribbon and it’s sure to be a success.
