My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #107.
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Simply Wonderful stamp set (Sale-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the little row of hearts image from the You Brighten My Day stamp set (Sale-A-Bration item) in Real Red ink under the sentiment, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement. Then I embossed the stamped panel with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder.
I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL, then adhered a smaller panel of Basic Black card stock and a panel from the Stacked With Love DSP stack over the embossed panel, using SNAIL to adhere the layers. I wrapped a strand of Gold Baker’s Twine around the panel and tied a bow, then adhered the layered panel to a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut a two hearts from a different panel of the Stacked With Love DSP pack and one heart from Gold Foil Sheets with the heart dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies set. I adhered the gold heart to the larger heart and the smaller heart to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and I adhered the larger heart with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I punched a heart from another sheet from the Stacked With Love DSP Stack with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punch and I adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to complete the card front.
I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the heart images from the You Brighten My Day stamp set on a Whisper White panel inside the card.
For the treat bag, I cut the main pieces with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies from the Stacked with Love DSP Stack. I had to cut the right side from two pieces of DSP (since a single piece isn’t wide enough) and I just adhered them together at the seam, the same way that the left side is adhered. Before adhering the back of the bag together, I used the row of hearts die to cut the hearts across the top of the bag. I used Sticky Strip to adhere the bag together, I find that to be the fastest and easiest adhesive for this project.
I cut the banner with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die from the Stacked With Love DSP Stack. I adhered a heart that I’d cut from Real Red card stock with the die from the Treat Bag set with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I punched an arrow from Gold Foil Sheets with the What’s Up Punch, snipped it in half, then adhered the pieces with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the heart.
I cut the sentiment out with the die from the Treat Bag set from Stacked With Love DSP and I adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue over the heart. I clipped the banner and a strand of Gold Sequins to the bag with a Mini Metallic Clothespin, then adhered a few random hearts with Multipurpose Liquid Glue that I’d cut from Gold Foil Sheets with the heart die from the Treat Bag Set.

One of my favorites, there are so many, the butterfly framelits and coordinating stamp set.
Oh my goodness what a great giveaway! I think my favorite item is the Celebrate Today set and matching Framelits. I’m always in need of cute birthday cards. Thank You!
The butterfly dies and coordinating stamp set are my favorites this time. Have already ordered both of them. Love your Valentine card and bag.
