Valentine Gift Packages

I wanted to give the three other ladies in my Discipleship Essentials guad a small Valentine gift for being so willing to be vulnerable and speaking their truths, good or bad. I found some sweet sock cupcakes on Etsy which was the kind of thing I was looking for. Sometimes you don't know what you want until you see it. 

I started out by using the largest die from The Greetery Heart Leaf Posy Pocket die to cut the heart shaped leaves from white cardstock. I then used the smaller die to cut inside hearts from red and pink cardstock, placing them inside so they peaked out at the top. I closed them up with a bit of glue at the bottom and foam dimensionals inside to give them a puffy look. I cut the flowers from white, red and pink cardstock using dies from The Greetery BotaniCuts Forget-Me-Nots. Before attaching the dies I stamped the partial sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Huggable set using pure poppy ink. I punched holes in each leave to make it a hanging tag, added one of the forget-me-nots pieces around the hole, and threaded divine twine through it. 

The sock cupcakes arrived with cute heart decorated cellophane envies but I decided to replace them with plain ones to show off the colors more. I tied with three pieces of ribbon, the tags and a small heart charm for a festive feel. 

Here is a closer picture:

Products: The Greetery dies, Reverse Confetti sentiment, Amazon Heart Charms, May Arts Ribon, PTI ink

I am submitting these to the Color Hues #11 Challenge of red and pink and also The Card Concept#148 (Sweetheart Sweets) challenge. 

Have a great weekend! Happy Valentine's Day!
