The gorgeous Sweetheart Mix ( January Ribbon Club ) works perfectly with these papers. I created a belly band by layering Random Hearts and Confetti Dots Grograin over White Crochet lace. This adds great texture and a lovely pop of color to the background layers.
taffeta ribbons yet? Oooh-la-la! It makes such a lovely, crisp bow. I used the White Taffeta Ribbon from the Sweetheart Mix here. I had a little snip of the Red Bold Diamond Print Satin ribbon on my work desk and used it to make a couple of little banner flags to go beneath the sentiment. This doesn't just look pretty, it helps draw the eye to the sentiment panel.
I thought it would be loads of fun to tuck a packet of Cup-a-Soup into the inside pocket. I practically lived on this stuff way back when I was in my college dorm. And, the packet is red and white...so it really works for Valentine's Day!
Have you started working on your Valentines yet? I hope I've shared an idea or two that inspired you!
Thanks for stopping by!
