Fox & Friends Valentines
This is another stamp club project for this month. I wanted to design a Valentine that kids could give their classmates at school. Fox & Friends is the perfect stamp set to turn into a kid-friendly Valentine's card. With the additions of some Love Patterns Paper, Glimmer Paper and candy, this card is sure to be a hit.
Here are the details: The card base is 3" x 3". I used two 2" x 1-3/8" Ovals, sponged in early espresso ink to make a faux heart behind the circle shape. I punched two holes in the bottom with the crop-a-dile to feed the grosgrain ribbon through and then tied the smarties to the card. The small heart is punched out of glimmer paper and mounted on a dimensional for a little depth. The card fits into a mini square envelope. If you tuck the flap in the envelope and slip the card in fold first, the card fits in and the candy peeks out (see photo below).
