Paper crafting in the 1930's

Valentine Duo

Happy Friday!  It's going to be a beautiful weekend here in Central Florida.  I love this time of year.  However, for those of you in the north, particularly the Northeast, this weekend could bring some trying weather.  My son lives in Boston so he will be keeping us apprised of the weather-related events in that area.  Stay safe!

My monthly stamp camps met this week and a couple of our projects focused on Valentine's Day.  We made a card and a little sweet treat to accompany it.  Both projects used the paper from the More Amore designer series paper pack creating a nice coordinated look.  See that awesome die-cut heart?  That, too, is in the More Amore paper pack.  Two awesome 12x12 sheets of heart die cuts in two colors.

What really made this card come together was the Heart a Flutter Bundle.  The stamp set along with the coordinating Hearts a Flutter Framelits made this card a snap to put together.  And, who can resist the small fabric flower?  This flower comes on a strip of tulle making it easy to use one or several.  And, for only $6.95 you receive 6 feet of flowers!!  That is one serious strip of flowers!  No need to be stingy with this embellishment!

Inspired from a fellow demonstrator, Melissa Stout, we also made a matchbook valentine filled with a bit of chocolate.  These were a hit.  In fact, I made several more to hand out to the girls at my dental office.  Something so simple can have a great impact.

Interested in making a matchbook valentine for someone special?  It's easy...here's how:

  • Cut a piece of card stock 2-3/4" x 8-1/2"
  • Score along the 8-1/2" edge at 3/4", 4-1/2" and 5"
  • Crease all score lines and fold card stock to create a "matchbook".
  • Insert candy of choice and staple along the 3/4" fold
  • Decorate cover as desired.

Have a great weekend!
