Sweetest Cottage Gift Box and Card

Hi and welcome, everyone! 

Today I’m over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing my first Valentine’s Day projects of 2019.

I decided to get out in front of it this year. Christmas just flew by and I didn’t get to enjoy all the wonderful things that Christmas brings, so much to do, so little time to do it. That’s changing this year and if it means me working months in advance then so be it. 

My first Valentine’s Day gift is super simple to create using the Cottage Ribbon-Tied 3D Gift Box. I used Kraft coverstock to cut the bottom and sides. Quick dry adhesive and few binder clips keep me working while this dries. Red coverstock to cut the top, using a heart embossing folder to add interest to that red coverstock. I swiped a Distress Ink Pad – Barn Door over the embossed hearts so they stand out a little more.  I’m using Trendy Twine Chevron Ribbon, love this ribbon, to tie the box closed. 

Using Doodlebug Valentine’s paper, from years ago, I cut the heart-shaped accents and glue to the box with a quick dry adhesive.  To hold that pretty ribbon in place I used Trendy Twine Totally Red and Cherry Latte Baker’s Twine. I used the negative from the heart-shaped accent pieces like charms. 

I decided to create a card to accompany the gift. Using the Valentine’s Scrap Panel A7 card from the JGW Heartfelt Delivery Kit.  Using the same Kraft and Red coverstock as the box I cut the pieces for the card. I embossed the red coverstock panels with the same embossing folder and inked it with Distress Ink – Barn Door, too. Using a white gel pen I added dots to each heart on the card and box. I decided to bring the FEB 14 to life with white accents, too. To finish it off I attached sequins using glossy accents. 

Honestly, I felt a sense of relief as I finished my first Valentine’s Day gift of 2019.

Thanks for stopping by! 

As always, thanks for joining us!
