Sweetheart Treat Card

Happy Valentine's Day to you!  Hope it was a good day for each and everyone!

I just got in from a four day trip to Phoenix AZ last night and have one more little Valentine to share with you before this day passes; it's made with the Heart Treat Cups and the Sweetheart stamp set.  This one is so simple; it doesn't have a folded card back and can be handed out as the Valentine and treat in one.  There is a tag that opens in the back so the candy can be extracted without tearing up the card also!

Real Red cardstock is the base, then the heart was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Full Heart Punch.  The Heart Treat Cup had some adhesive applied to the back side of the white, just enough to secure the heart cup, which was then inserted from the back side of the white layer.  This was then laid aside.

A 3" square of Real Red cardstock just 1/4" larger than the white was punched with the 1" Circle Punch and a greeting stamped on it.  This was adhered to the white layer using Snail adhesive across the bottom only and one Dimensional at each of the top corners.  This gives some room to easily insert a tag between the layers.

A tag was cut from Pink Passion cardstock and a Round Tab Punch in the same color was adhered to the top.  A "flag" of Red Striped Grosgrain was stapled to the top edge after  "just for you" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set was stamped on the tab.  This tab was slipped between the layers after the cup was filled with Valentine M&Ms.

This was a quick and easy project, and can be adapted for many occasions such as table or shower favors, for example.  It's really fun to color coordinate them with the candy to be used in them!

Thanks for visiting!  Please come back soon; I plan to have more Petal Card Die projects ready to post soon!
