Red Hearts

Good morning crafters, hope your weekend is going according to plan. This is one I made earlier in the week using the leftover Crafty Purple Frog decoupaged image from hubby's valentine card - it's a little bag to put the card in.


The image is printed onto ice blue decoupage paper. Black card is Tapestry and red is Stardream. All punches are from Martha Stewart. Ribbon and pearl hearts are from my stash. This was so difficult to photograph, think it's the pearlescence on the card!

  23. Great idea Carol rather than an envelope and I think I prefer it to a box. I will have to look for a template as I have quite a few cards waiting for boxes but I quite like this idea! hugs Susan x
