Love you card and boxes with a how-to video

Last week I posted this video on how to create this fun card and decorate this Valentine "Love You" box!

It can be hard to see size in a photo and these boxes are 4 x 2 3/4 and 1 1/2 deep so they hold a lot! Hopefully seeing the gift card next to the box helps you see the size!

Click here for the video on the card and box

Dimensions of the card 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 trim off 1" from the front right side of the card, add a collection of hearts. Tip: make sure the top and bottom heart are flush with the card edge so it can easily go into an envelope. 

I use a spritzer (I think I called it a sparkler!) Tip: use rubbing alcohol with 70% on the label!  I filled my spritzer with rubbing alcohol and some shimmer paint (I like the Champagne color). I spritzed it on the front of the card, it dries in 5 min, then trim, add hearts and words.

The words are from "Nothing More than"... we made a lot of fun projects last summer with this great bundle.

My friend Janey used this idea and made this fun card.  Do you see the little hearts that she used? That is part of a 4 pack "punch pack" and it's in clearance for $13,80 - for all 4 punches!  You can see more of Janey's work on her blog

I you make a heart card too!  Any set will work for you to stamp or add words. I used the Be Mine Stitched Dies and Janey used Heartfelt stamps (a super Valentine set, mine has been getting a workout!)

If you need any supplies (first check your stash!) and if you still need them, click on the shopping cart for my store (for the stamps, dies, Love You boxes etc) and don't forget the host code - this month the gift is a pack of the fun resin hearts for anyone spending $50 or more!

Happy stamping, MaryKate
