Mini Valentines


I've been having a blast with the SU! Sealed with Love bundle of stamps and framelit dies, and here are 2 mini Valentines I made with them. These measure 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 and the card bases are vanilla with a red panel on top. These mini envelopes are made with dies from the framelit set and I didn't realize they closed like this until I saw a card posted on Pinterest! DUH! The inserts are also dies from the set, and I stamped them with assorted tiny stamps that are included in the set. There's even a die for the envelope liners as you can see on the top left! I can't help it - I just get giddy with this versatile fun set of crafting goodies!
The colors used are SU! real red, crumb cake and very vanilla, and I used a SU! mini heart punch for the heart accents too.
Of course these are going into my Cards from the Heart box which is just about finished and ready to send in.  I already mailed my grandchildren's boxes of valentine cards to them as well, so now maybe I can concentrate on other themes besides Valentine's day! For once I'm well ahead of the game and I'm thankful when things work out in a timely manner.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day. My husband says "go Steelers!"

(as for me and football......pfft!)

I do think those little envelopes are adorable, too! It would be fun to stamp anything inside them. I think you are going to get a lot of use out of them, for sure!

These are just precious Carol. Great set. So many possibilities. You are doing good on your schedule. I haven't even made one Valentine's Day card. It will be here before we know it and I will be scrambling, better get to it. Have a wonderful day.

Oh an I have the same feelings about football or pretty much any sport! But.....if I did have to pick a team it'd probably be the Steelers!

These are adorable, Carol! I have seen all kinds of idea's for this bundle and mine just arrived yesterday.

Oh my gawd! My hubby says GO STEELERS too. We have the Terrible Towels artfully draped about the living room, the foam football has been retrieved from the cat toybox, the yellow and black helmet snack tray is at the ready.... Now if only the Pats can not be that stellar next week.

Oh, I'm soooo off topic. LOVE this bundle and what you've done with it. I want to buy it but I think by the time I get it and use, VD will be passed... but then again VD happens every year. I had no idea those little squares folded up like that. Adorable!
