Valentine Treats

We made these little treat pouches at my Chicks & Chocolate party a few days ago.  They were so much fun to make!  I selected the colors to match the little Dove candies inside!  The pink and purple one on the left is made with the heart punch as a base.  It is covered with little blossoms from the Itty Bitty shapes punch pack.  The little pearls are from the Basic Pearls jewels pack.  They are so tiny and just perfect for the small blossom.
The Scallop Trim border punch and the Pinking Hearts border punch were used to trim the tops of the pouches. Pink Grosgrain ribbon and 1/8" Red Taffeta ribbon keep the flaps closed.
The green one uses the Just Believe stamp set for the flowers, and the tiny blossom under the greeting is from the level 1 Hostess set, Afterthoughts.  The Just for You greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  The pouch front is stamped with Elegant  Eggplant, Wild Wasabi, and Real Red inks.
I got my inspiration for these pouches from Chera Wiest's 12 Days of Chocolate on her blog.

Our second project was this little 3 x 3 note card.  
Here's how the heart was made:
The Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit was used to make the pink and red hearts.  After embossing the pink heart, it was inserted in the large heart punch (without removing it from the original square of paper) and  punched out, removing the scalloped edge.  Then it was mounted on the red heart.  This way the cool little polka dots are on the pink heart!  The greeting comes from the Well Scripted stamp set.
The envelope is decorated with little love birds from the Northern Hearts stamp set.  At least they look like love birds to me! They are just the right size for the envelope.
I hope you enjoy these little Valentine projects.  Have a great day!
