Yes, Valentine's Day will be here before you know it. It's always been a holiday that catches me by surprise. Fortunately for moi, my husband knows exactly what to get me and it's the same every year and it never gets old.
A book and a box of chocolates.
It's the best.
I look forward to it every year.
If he doesn't get it for me this year (he will) I will get it for myself!
So when the wonderful Alpha Stamps sent me the Victorian Ephemera Kit-January and that luscious chocolate colored Dresden trim spilled out, well, that was it for me. It had to be a snarky chocolate valentine.
Victorian Ephemera Kit-January.
I used the Arched Tent Card Frame as a template to cut all my papers and set them aside for a moment.
I reinforced the bendy fold in the tent card (on one side) with some lined hinging tape and inked it gold.
Then I penciled in where I wanted to add a garland of Stickles......
I did the outside of the tent card first and then glued in the arch top piece inside and embellished away with the Stickles.
(The phrases I glued and embellished separately, then glued them onto the tent card before I added the final touches of glitter.)
A couple of pretty little paper flowers on the front and a couple drops of glitter in the centers and it's all good to go!
Have a chocolatey Valentine's Day!
