Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!! I hope everyone's had a "lovely" day so far  :}  My project for today is a little treat I made for my hubby. 
The Poppy Parade DSP (Sale-A-Bration: Everyday Enchantment) was cut on the Big Shot using the Pillow Box Bigz Die. Using Soft Suede ink, I stamped the border image (Sale-A-Bration: Fresh Vintage) onto a strip of Very Vanilla DSP (Neutrals Collection Paper Stack). Before adhering the DSP strip to the front of the Pillow Box, I adhered to the top edge a small strip of Pool Party textured card stock, which has been distressed and sponged with Soft Suede ink.
After I tucked some yummy chocolate inside, I tied Pool Party Seam Binding around the box. Since it's for Valentines Day, I made a heart-shaped tag. The bottom layer of the tag is Very Vanilla DSP die-cut using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit. To create the next layer, I stamped the floral image in Soft Suede ink onto Poppy Parade card stock, and punched it out using the Full Heart punch. The tiny little Pool Party heart was die-cut using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit, and adhered to the tag with a Glue Dot. I tied the tag onto the Seam Binding using the Pool Party colored thread, which I separated from the Pool Party Baker's Twine.
The color inspiration (Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla) for my hubby's little Valentine treat came from the color challenge on The Paper Players blog. I'm sure my hubby will like the chocolate inside more than the packaging, but I had fun making this little treat.  May the rest of your day be as "lovely" as mine!  Mmmmmwaaah!  ;)
