My first project is a slightly different take on the card.

First, I opened it up by removing the flap.

Next, I created a Flirty Flamingo belly band and added a strip cut from the flap.

Then, I layered on more details.

I used a foiled label, some of the pretty ribbon and enamel dots.

To finish the band, I colored one of the vellum die cuts from the kit

using Stampin’ Blends markers.

With the Blends, I was able to create a streaky wash for added visual texture.

For the note itself, I trimmed another piece of the flap

and added it to the bottom.

Then, I used the Rich Razzleberry ink and a sentiment from

the Heartfelt Love Notes stamp set to finish the note.

For my second alternative project, I created a mini album.

I’m going to fill it with pictures from last weekend and give it to my daughter for Valentine’s Day.

At the front, I used one of the card pockets.

to it, I added a Whisper White insert.

There’s plenty of room for a photo and some journaling.

Then, I stamped a sentiment from Heartfelt Love Notes

and cut it out with the Tailored Tag Punch.

I love the look of tabs in mini albums!
