Petal Card Die and Love You Much Bundle

I have been wanting to play with the Petal Card die for the Big Shot for some time and finally got to do so! One of the cool things to use it for is to make a heart pocket that will hold a treat or a note, even a Valentine note. : )




I used the delicious Candy Lane Designer Paper to cut the petal die, then all you do is fold in two of the four scallops (the die also scores them so that is totally simple) to form the bottom point of your heart. Tip: Since I was going to use mine to hold a chocolate square (chocolate, what else, lol!), I placed the chocolate on my die cut and folded the paper over it in order to accommodate the thickness of the candy. I sealed the flaps together with Sticky Strip to hold the weight of the candy.

Next I stamped the Hugs and Kisses image from the Love You Much stamp set, colored it with markers, added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the heart in the center and punched it out with the Scallop Circle punch. I adhered this with Dimensionals. On the top, I made a loop of the Riding Hood Red Tafetta ribbon and attached it with a small pink Fire Rhinestone Brad. Viola! Sweets for someone sweet! So quick and easy and what a great use for our beautiful double-sided Designer Paper!

Sorry I didn't get to post this sooner but I've been out of town for three days.

I will have another way to use the Petal Card Die I'll show you tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping by! Make it a great day!

What a great idea! I've seen so many cute cards done with this die, I'm seriously considering it now.
