Jar of Hearts

Good morning friends!

In keeping with my goal to 'use things up' in my studio, today's Valentine uses two rose printed cards I've had for many years.

I cut a slit in the spine and tied the satin ribbon around the card front, then used my new 'jar' stamp on pale pink patterned paper. Some teeny puffy heart stickers fill the jar inside and are spilling out the top as well, and I added some Glitter Dot Peel-Off's to fill in the spaces and add more sparkle.

The little label at the bottom is from one of the Decorator Dies that come with the Lucy Label Pop it Ups die set. (A new collection of wafer thin dies by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs).

The chipboard 'sweet' is from a little Valentine Banner. I used part of the banner on a different Valentine, and this piece was left over.

Here is a peek at the inside ... I used the Lucy Label Pop Up in a vertical orientation on the 2nd rose printed card.  First though, that card was trimmed dwn and I used the Agatha Edge die on the sides.

That cute little 'be mine' banner was in the same package as the 'sweet' one and the ends are held to the card with two puffy heart stickers. The words swing and dangle as the card is opened.

While that 2nd bump out is entirely optional when using the Lucy Label Pop Up ... I decided to use it and added another puffy heart sticker to that.

I cut a heart using one of the Decorator Dies that come with the Heart Pivot die set, to give me a place to add our signature. A little hand lettering on another Lucy Label Pop (after I snipped away the exccess) and I added two more Glitter Dot Peel-Offs and yes ... another puffy heart sticker.

This card is my new favourite size ... 4-1/2 x 6".  Below is a look at the Pop it Ups dies I used for the card ...
