SUINKWWC #23- Happy Valentines Treat

Aloha Friday everyone! The day is almost over, here in Hawaii. Before it ends, I just wanted to share a sweet post with you all. This is something I had created for SUInk & More WHACHADOIN' WEDNESDAY challenge, which we were to create a Valentine Treat Holder. Although I am about one week late for this challenge, I still wanted to play along. So here it is. This idea I totally CASED from Holly McMillen @ Toy's Haven. You must check out her site. Her work is fabulous. Sorry for the bright glare on the note card.

I created this matching 3x3 note card, a perfect fit for my treat holder. The black, gold, and vanilla card stock are from various companies. As for the DS paper, I selected this design for the special recipient I had in mind. The softness of this print, with the glittery effect, was just perfect for this special someone. This DS paper used was from one of the premium pads of DCWV. I then added a piece of fancy edged lace & pink satin ribbon. The itty bitty dew drop, prima flower and the All Natural Accents were all purchased from LittleC's Stamps n' Things. The stamped heart and sentiment are part of my Valentine set "Will You Be My Valentine" by SUInk & More.

For this treat box, instead of using your traditional Valentine treats, I chose to use a more familiar and elegant looking one. Not to mention, in my opinion, one of the yummiest. As for the measurements of the box and acetate top, I guessed and guessed and guessed. It's really just your basic box template with a slight difference in size between the base and top. Using the same DS paper as the box, I created a divider strip between the candies, also done by guessing. With all the guessing that went on in creating this, I believe I've now got it down...I GUESS!?!Card Details:
Stamps: Will You Be My Valentine (SUInk)
Paper: Stock Paper (various), DS paper (DCWV)
Ink: SU Markers, Black Versa Craft
Accessories: Ribbon, Gold Cord, Prima Flowers, Scallop Punch, Circle Punch, Dew Drop, Dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoyed your visit and see you real soon. Till then be blessed!

hugs in Jesus~

very nice! I love all that you post and more....and yes it really is 430 in the morning but NO I wasnt up all night enjoying 'me' time! I woke up about 30 minutes ago after sleeping in an upward position all night with my cpac on my face as if getting myself ready for a crash landing (-: for some reason I cant shake this cough that I've had for several months now and continue with my nightly ritual of coughing thru my sleep! i did see my pulmonary doctor yesterday and she said that for someone that looks so calm, she wouldnt have suspected me to be wheezing so much when she listened to my chest. I need to keep up with taking care of myself. I go back in two weeks after commiting to taking all my meds so I can breath! Love you sis..oh by the way, Im inviting myself over to your place to do some cards...hee hee! love you
