Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Valentine Favor. With Valentine's Day just 2-1/2 weeks from now it's time to finish those cards and treats! Today's favor is straight out of the Sweet Talk Suite using the Sweet Little Boxes, the Sweet Conversation Bundle, and Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper.
I started by assembling the box and running a Dark Real Red Stampin' Blend around the edges so the box would look red.
No need to color the whole thing since I was adding DSP to the sides. (Be sure to use the side of the brush tip when adding the color!)
After adhering the DSP to the sides, I colored a strip of white 1/4" Seam Binding Ribbon with the Stampin' Blend (again using the side of the brush tip). Wrapped and tied the bow, then slipped the greeting under and glued in place. The greeting was stamped three times using the Stamparatus so it would be more bold.
The hearts were inked with Real Red using a sponge dauber to preserve the details. I find I get a better image that way. One was adhered directly to the box and the other popped up on mini dimensionals. A couple of Polished Dots accent the hearts.
