Scroll down for Passionately Artistic post

Hope you all had a nice Valentines Day yesterday. We have
a fun challenge today at The Pixie Cottage, anything but a card.

I made a Valentines set for my husband.The gift box was made using a 8" x 11" paper scoring 2 1/2" sides and folding up 1 1/2" to form the botto
m then attaching then overlapping the sides to attach. Before attaching the bottom and side I used the Spellbinder hearts to cut out the windows and adhered shear plastic sheeting behind the windows.
Using wire for the handle and a lace bow for decoration. I wanted a somewhat collage look so used several hearts embossing the black ones and all the hearts were cut with the
Spellbinder hearts. I also used a Memory Box Cherish border cut into pieces for the card and box. My rose images are Simply The Best by Artish found Here. After stamping the roses I outlined all of it in black stickles so it has
a nice sparkle in person. Using a MS heart bor
der to finish off the
top then filled it with cherry sour ball for my love.

The tag base was stamped with and old collage stamp then
stitched round. The same hearts and image were attached to it
also. Just wanted to added the border to two sides and
more of the lace.

Thanks for stopping by today. You will want to be sure to stop by
The Pixie Cottage and see my teammates delightful creations.

Im in the black and red mode this week ya think! Well this card was for my
sweet dad so wanted it to be masculine. Very simple. Using two layers of MS
zig zag border punch to mimic the diamond checked center. The fun little glittery
hearts give it just enough sparkle. Some fun stitching to finish the edges. And my
dad thought it was great because his #1 daughter made it for him!
