Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  Thought I would make some fun cards and little gift boxes to fill with candies and chocolates for my kids.  I used the Just Because collection from Little Yellow Bicycle and my Create-a-Sticker from Xyron.
The two larger boxes were nesting gift boxes I found in my gift wrapping stash from X-mas and the top box was a random gift box that I thought would make a perfect topper. To make sure the paper on the sides was extra sticky I ran it through my Create-a-Sticker.  Now it is never going to peel off.
The tops of the boxes were not too difficult to cover.  I used my scoring tool on the corners to make really neat edges that were easy to adhere.  I also love the way sheer ribbons look on gift wrapping, so I tied this beautiful red Offray ribbon around the gift box stack.  
I was really just having fun with layering elements on this card with the silver heart and fresh verse stickers from Little Yellow Bicycle being the focus.  I just love how the journal card makes such a great focal element with the sentiment and little notebook edges.

I added some of the brand new Naturals cork heart stick pins from Little Yellow Bicycle to this page.  I love how well it mixes with the bright fun colors of the Just Because collection.

Last but not least, I wanted to keep this card simple because the 6 x 6 patterned paper was so darling and really only needed a little stitching, pop dots and heart stickers.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
