Celebrate: Floating Botanical Blooms






The base of the card is 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".  The floater bar is 1" x 11",  scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".  The card folds flat to fit into an envelope, so you need to be careful to not place the flowers and leaves past the edge of the card.

Valentines: Hugs and Kisses Box







This year I gave my children and grandchildren a small box for Valentine's Day.  In the box was the required Ghiredelli's chocolate, of course.  I also found a LED light in the shape of a cork.  You turn on the light and put it in a bottle with a neck.  It makes the bottle a light that you can carry.  It is rechargable via a USB port.  Fun gift.

The stamp is an old Stampin' Up! set that coordinates with the scallop punch.  I used the scalloped top punch to create the box.  Bravo Burgundy and white colors were used.
