Lovely Lipstick Layered Hearts Valentine's Day Card and Diamond-Faceted Gift Box

by Joanne James8. February 2019 21:15

Yay it's Friday and the weekend is just around the corner! Today has been a day of rest for the girls of the James household - both of us are suffering with colds, courtesy of the youngest James Junior who thoughtfully shared his cold with us and today it has knocked us for six. Today I'm sharing a card I made earlier this week using the lovely Julee Tilman's sketch; I was thrilled to learn recently that she had revived her Mojo Monday sketch challenge which she is now hosting on her blog Poetic Artistry - always worth a read, so do go take a look. So here is the current Mojo Monday sketch:

With only a week to go until Valentine's Day, I decided to take Julee's layout quite literally and used the heart focal point to influence the remainder of my design - take a look:


 Here's the low-down on today's card:

All Heart - My card today is all heart: I cropped my main heart with the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies and used the bold heart-patterned paper from the All My Love DSP pack for my main panel - there's nothing that says 'I Love You' for Valentine's Day more than hearts, hearts and more hearts! 

Layers of Lovely Lipstick - Julee's sketch has lots of layers and since I didn't want to detract from the heart patterned paper, I used a plain banner of Lovely Lipstick cardstock in conjunction with a couple of co-ordinating papers for the additional panel layers and used the monochromatic shade of Lovely Lipstick to unify my card. 

And a Matching Treat Box Too - I had a couple of lidless diamond-faceted gift boxes in Lovely Lipstick and made with the Gift Bag Punch Board on my desk, left over from another project, so quickly whipped up a lid in the heart-patterned paper to make a small gift box to co-ordinate with my card: 

Perfect for a small item of jewellery or some chocolates - I might have to drop a few hints to Mr James and see if he can put one of these to good use!

Here's one last photo of both of my projects together:

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
