My Non-Traditional Valentine to my Wyatt

This is a cutey Valentine that I made for my little Jellybean! I'm really happy with how this turned out.
I started out by stamping the bag on a piece of transparency, and cut it out. Then I stamped some Jellybeans in Marigold, Pumpkin, Caribbean, and Violet, and cut them out. I mounted them onto the white cardstock that I had Ticket Corner punched, pierced, spritzed, and marked for placement so that they are *enclosed* in the bag. I, then, tied the ribbon (Basic Grey) around the top and secured with a glue dot - hidden by the ribbon.
The ribbon was a new yummy from the scrapbook store (American Crafts) - I couldn't wait to use it!
The bottom is wheeled with Spot On, and stamped with Karen Foster Snap Stamps and Rough Edges Alpha "my sweet jellybean".
The patterned paper is from the Dots and Dashes paper pack - I love that one!
I hope that he likes it - actually, he'll probably think it's real candy, so I'd better have some real stuff on hand!!!

  7. This is a great card using All Wrapped Up. One of the very coolest cards I've ever seen using this set. Very crisp and upbeat. Love how you used the transparency.
