Alternative Card

Be Mine Valentine Paper Pumpkin alternative card from theartfulinker.com

For this card, I used the sketch that I shared with my team this week.

Start with a Thick Whisper White base.

Then, add a layer of Lemon Lime Twist

followed by a piece of Animal Expedition designer paper.

Next, you’ll add a strip cut from one of the

pillow boxes included in the kit.

Using the Starburst Punch, cut a piece of Melon Mambo.

Add a strip of Leaf Ribbon.

Punch a 1-3/4″ Circle from Whisper White.

Stamp the cut little bird from the exclusive stamp set

in Pool Party on Whisper White.

Then mask the sentiment

and stamp just “happy” and “day”

in Melon Mambo.

Alternative Favor

 

For this box, start with the pillow boxes included in the kit.

Make a lid from Whisper White.

Then, wrap the box with Whisper White Baker’s Twine

and tie a bow.

Stamp both birds in Pool Party on one of the

die cut starburst labels included in the kit.

Next, stamp the sentiment in Pool Party on Whisper White

and cut out with the 1″ Circle Punch.

Use the smallest Be Mine Stitched heart to

cut a piece of Animal Expedition designer paper.

    Great projects! I love your genius little box, and the way you highlighted the greeting over the birds so their tails stick out and look like flourishes. So clever, thanks for sharing 😀

      Thanks! Kimberley. I’m going to have to be on the look out for other stamps that can be partially hidden for an alternate appearance.
