Boxy Valentine Love!

Hello!  I had so much fun putting together my project for today!!  It uses some of my all time favorite things!!  Polka dots, pink, hearts and shimmering glitter-y pizzazz!!  Valentine's Day is just around the corner so I have heart filled gifts and goodies on the brain!  Want to see what I made this morning?!

This is a 3 x 3 card, but don't let it's tiny little size fool you!  It actually holds all of the love of a 12 x 12 card! LOL

Lots of layers and fun textures!  This little card is totally capable of brightening someone's day all on it's own, but I didn't stop there!  LOL  Take a look at what I snazz-ied on up to go with it!!

A matching box!!  You can buy a whole set of these boxes from Stampin Up! and decorate them up any way you like!  They are only $2.95 for 4 of them and they hold oodles of goodies!!

I made a fluffy carnation to go on top and added some leaves from the Bird Builder punch! (they are bird wings, but I think they make perfect leaves! :)  I made the polka dots with a sponge dauber (aren't they just adorable?!).  I learned this neat trick from a Regional event I attended.

Close up of the flower.  This is made from a scallop circle punch!

Close up of the hearts.  I thought these looked like the candy hearts they sell during the Valentine's Day season with the little words on them!  I was excited to discover that the smallest heart from the Hearts Framelits nests perfectly in the smallest heart from Hearts A Flutter!  WoooHoooo! 

Here is my little gift set pictured together!  All ready to be filled and delivered to someone special! :)
