I pulled out the January kit from Paper Makeup Stamps, Mon Cheri, to make a set of three love note cards with clear envies. The cards were made with papers and embellies from the kit. Once the gray cardstock was stamped with a sentiment (I used three different ones from the kit), I used a punch to cut out the middle to expose the sheet music.
To package them, I used the tutorial on SCS for a Mini Pizza Box. I made mine a smidge smaller, about 3.5" square, to accomodate the size of my contents. I used nesties to cut the scallops and coordinating layers; and then embellished with die cut flowers and gems. For the closure, I wrapped some gray grosgrain ribbon around the box and tied it in a bow. I love the ribbon from this kit, the grosgrain was my favorite.
I am giving this to a friend to use for her Valentines, let's hope she loves it!
The Mon Cheri kit is still available in limited quantities, be sure to grab yours. There's still time to use it to make Valentines or send love notes throughout the year.
Today is my birthday, another year older and hopefully wiser as well. I celebrated with my fellas yesterday and will likely have a small celebration tonight when I get home from work. Duke and Cody took me to TGI Friday's, we enjoyed ourselves wayyyy too much.
To celebrate this momentus occasion with all of you, I'll be posting blog candy soon! So stay tuned.
