I have a core group of friends that I cannot live without! I made one of these Valentine "boxes" for each one. Once I got the formula down for the card base and decorated it with a lot of retired Valentine paper, I then set to work on how to "fill" it so that when it's opened, my girlfriends will be surprised that balloon hearts and good wishes greet them!
Here is a close up of how it looks with row after row of fun stamped images. You could even put three or four rows in if you have a lot of things you wanted to say! The last row, the heart "balloons" are floating on strips of Window Sheets. Some of the boxes I made also had Glimmer Paper hearts glued to the side and back flaps for some sparkle. There are so many ways you could decorate these cards and I'm loving figuring them out.
Stay tuned, I really AM working on my watercolor card and will post it over the weekend! Thanks for looking and I'd love to read your comments.
What was your best Valentine ever? I'd have to say that mine was being taken to London for a few days! It was half business, but my husband took me along and it was a great trip back in the 90's.
