Petal Card Die and Love You Much Bundle pt II

Yesterday I showed you a heart candy holder using the Petal Card die; today I have another one for you using the same basic materials. This holder is diecut from Real Red cardstock using the Petal Card die. I then cut just one scallop from a scrap of the Candy Lane Designer Paper and attached it to the red cardstock. Three of the petals were then folded up using the bone folder for a nice sharp edge and adhered with Sticky Strip adhesive. The fourth scallop, the one lined with the Designer Paper, was left unfolded and punched at the top with a 1/8" punch. and red gingham ribbon was threaded through this.

The large heart from the Love You Much stamp set was stamped in Real Red on Pretty in Pink cardstock. After cutting the heart out and highlighting it with the Signo white gel pen, it was attached with Dimensionals to the front of the envelope A red gingham ribbon bow embellishes the heart.

I added a Ghiradelli chocolate in the envelope and it fits just perfect! You could tie sweets to a bottle of soda, frappacino, or other beverage to make a "sweet" gift for Valentine's Day or other special days!

I cut another red petal card to sit my display bottle on and thought these would make cute paper coasters for a festive tablesetting also! There are many other uses for this die; these are just a few! I'm sure you'll come up with many more! Please share them.

Happy stampin'! Have fun!
