Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of All My Love Designer Series Paper to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″.   Create a 1/4″ flagged end by marking at 1 5/8 in (center) and 1/4″ up ( from bottom).  Cut from the outside edge to the mark with a Paper Snips or Stampin’ Trimmer. 
  4. Use a Stamparatus to line-up (3/4″ from the top) and stamp the floral border image (Lovely Lipstick) and the coordinating greenery image (Soft Sea Foam).
  5. Use the Big Shot to crop the heart (Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies) from the flagged piece as shown.  Using the same die, crop a piece of Vellum Cardstock.   Adhere on the right and left side with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  6. Adhere a 4 1/8″ piece of Lovely Lipstick ribbon to the top of the flagged piece.  Add the Flirty Flamingo 1/8″ ribbon (All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack) and stitched together with a sewing machine. 
  7. Use the Big Shot to crop a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to outline the top floral image.  Snip the edges so they are flush with the flagged piece and adhere with snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  8. Stamp the “Wishing You…” sentiment in Versamark Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Cover with Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, set with a Heat Tool.  Snip closely with a Paper Snips.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  9. Add three Multi-Sized Heart Epoxy Droplets for the final touch!

I absolutely love the Forever Lovely Bundle as well as the coordinating Meant to Be Bundle.  The  Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies nest together to create a gorgeous result.  Add your final touches with the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack and Heart Epoxy Droplets.

That little Mini Pizza Box looked like the perfect 3-D packaging to wrap-up in the All My Love Suite of Products to create a gift box for a valentine. The flowers took a bit of snipping with my handy Paper Snips, but I love the result.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Start with a Mini Pizza Box as your creative canvas.  
  2. Cut the following pieces of the All My Love Designer Series Paper:   3 1/4″ Squares, Qty 2;  7/8″ x 3 3/8″, Qty 4.  Adhere to the box with Tear & Tape.  Use sandpaper to add wear to the edges.
  3. Use a Stamparatus to line-up and stamp the floral border image (Lovely Lipstick) and the coordinating greenery image (Soft Sea Foam).  Flip and adjust the cardstock to stamp it again close to each other.  Zip through the Big Shot (two times) with the coordinating edgelit die.  Snip the areas that do not cut with a Paper Snips.  
  4. Use the Big Shot to crop two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock (within Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheets) with the coordinating die cut.  Lay over the top of the floral image and mark areas that need to be snipped with a Paper Snips.  Adhere over the top of the floral image as shown. 
  5. Use the Big Shot and largest Scalloped Stitched Heart Die to crop a piece of Vellum Cardstock.  Weave within the floral die cut image you just completed and adhere, with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a belly band created from the All My Love Ribbon (so it can slide on and off the box).  
  6. Create a bow with the Flirty Flamingo 1/8″ Ribbon and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. 
  7. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Cover with Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat today.  Snip to size with a Paper Snips.  Flag one end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Crop the other end with a Big Shot and scalloped stitched edgelit die (Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies).  Line up and adhere to the stitched heart vellum die-cut. 
  8. Add three Heart Epoxy Droplets for a final touch.
