Sweetheart & Love Bandit
The first card uses the new Occasions set Sweetheart along with the new heart treat cups. I had to cut out the heart sentiment shape and attach it on top of the treat cup since you won't be able to use the heart punch if you stamp the stem, it's just not designed that way. Which is a bummer if you are looking to save time.
Colors were inspired by the Sweet Tarts hearts: Apricot, Pretty In Pink, Sage Shadow.
I stamped the Filigree in matching ink on the Apricot cardstock and then embossed the dots in white. Pillow Box Big Shot die was made to match with some apricot grosgrain ribbon.
The second card is a tri-fold 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Score at 2 3/4" x 5 1/2". Fold card and then trim off the tiny excess overlap so all edges are even.
Stamp front as desired. On first panel punch a 1 3/8" square at top, on second panel punch a 1 1/4" square (centered under first panel's square. This will create your window. the third panel I made white and stamped the raccoon directly in the center of the window. I used my stamp-a-majig so I didn't ruin the whole card at this point by winging the placement.
