Hearts in a Box Card

I am getting ready for Valentine's day so I made a box card with hearts on top.

The first one is cut from kraft paper and decorated with red patterned paper and red glitter paper. Most of the papers came from an old Recollections paper pack called Love Letters.

I found a red heart shaped gem for the center of the back panel and clear heart gems for the tabs.

I also made a black and pink version using some old Authentique paper called Classique Pretty. (I have almost used up that paper pack-yeah, now only a few dozen stacks to go. ) LOL 

Heart boxes for Valentine's

I have made several little treat boxes for Valentine's Day. Above are some fry shaped boxes. I also made several little heart topped folded boxes.

Some of the boxes have an open heart at the top of the handle.
Others have a open window on the side.

Then I made a different style of fry box. I could not decide which style I liked best so I just included both in the cut files. 

If you would like the cut files to make your own heart topped boxes,
you can purchase the files at my Etsy shop.

Dragonflies and Stationer's Desk

 I am still trying to use up my pretty paper stash. These papers were oldies but goodies, from Prima Stationer's Desk. I just loved these papers which is why I have held on to them for so long.

My handmade Tattered flowers were inked with TH Aged Mahogany distress ink and then I added gold gilders paste to the edges.

I used a 12 by 12 for the card base then layered 4 by6 paper stacks along with some stickers and trims. 

The gold foil touches were done using Minc paint and a TH stencil. By using a stencil and paint I could get a more rustic look that is not as perfect as using my laser printer.

 I even added some paint to a wooden dragonfly and foiled it
