Valentine gift set

valentine gift 1    valentine gift 2

Hi there

Valentines day is not to far away so here is a cute project.  Its a bottle tag with a little choccy attached and a mini card.

The idea for the card is that when you have written your message and given it the recipient can put it in their bag/ wallet/purse so they can keep it with them all the time, you could add a photo on there if you like to.  On the back of this card i have just added some dsp but the design is completely up to you.

The card its self is on real red cardstock and measures 3 1/4″ x 2 1/4″  (8.2cm x 5.7cm)and i have rounded the edges. The dsp on the back and the whisper white on the front measures 3 3/16″ x 2 3/16″ (8cm x 5.5cm) and again  i just rounded the corners.  Before adhering the whisper white onto the real red i punched out a heart so the red shows through.

The envelope i created using the envelope punch board and the whisper white cardstock measures 5 1/2″x 5 1/2″  (13.9cm x 13.9cm) and it was punched and scored at 2 3/8″ just check these on the EPB for cm measurements

For the belly band i used some of the left over dsp that i used to decorate the card and cut it to 1 1/4″ (3.1cm) in width but i didnt really measure how long as i just wrapped it round and secured it.

I used the 2 1/4″ scallop circle punch to punch the backing for the sentiment and adhered that over the belly band join. Then on top i stamped out the sentiment from the new You plus me stamp set from the spring/summer catalogue in real red and punched it out using the 1 3/4″ circle punch and adhered that to the scallop circle.

For the bottle tag i measured and cut some real red cardstock to 6 3/4″ x 2″ (15.4cm x5cm) and scored the 6 3/4″ side at 2″ (5cm) the dsp measures 4 1/2″ x 1 7/8″ (11.4cm x 4.7cm) then i stamped out a sentiment from the You Plus Me stamp set and punched it out with the decorative label punch. I also punched some glimmer paper hearts.  The hole at the top was punched out with the 1 1/4″ scallop circle punch

i hope you like this one

take care and have a great day
