Whooo's Your Valentine Blog Hop


Hi!  If you came from Sandra's blog then you're in the right place!  If you've jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog www.damaskdivas.com/whooosyourvalentine/ to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

I created this perfect little box for your valentine treats!   I used the Whooo's Your Valentine Kit and the Cricut Artiste cartridge (available from your Close To My Heart Independent Consultant). The box, heart borders, and medallion are all found on page 71 of the cartridge booklet. The box was cut at 5 inches using Hollyhock cardstock.  The heart borders were cut at 5 inches as well, using Blush cardstock and one of the black papers from the For Always paperpack, and glued them offset from each other.  The medallion was cut at 2 3/4 inches (using one of the For Always papers). I used black shimmer trim across top flap and behind medallion. Sentiment was stamped on 1 1/4 inch circle of  Colonial white cardstock using Hollyhock mini pigment pad, matted with 1  1/2 inch circle of silver glitter paper (from the Whooo's Your Valentine Kit) and glued to medallion.  The box is tied shut with plain black satin ribbon.  I also used the same Hollyhock ink to ink all the edges of the box.

Well you made it to the end of this month's hop! We hope you've had as much fun browsing our creations as we've had making them! And don't forget, you can still get this awesome Whooo's Your Valentine Kit for only $10 when you make a qualifying $35 purchase!  This special ends January 31st.
