Pucker up!

HI everyone!!

It's nearly Valentines Day which means a few smooches here and there for everyone! And who doesn't want soft lips for it? I came across a new Chapstick product the other day which I thought would be fun to incorporate into a card. Instead of the Chapstick being in a "stick" it is in a little jar with a fun scent and a little bit of color.

I apologize for the poor picture of the close up but my camera is on it's last leg, so hopefully soon I will get a new one!! This project is basically an altered version of the pop up card by making it accommodate this little jar. There are a few steps in accomplishing this, but I don't want to bore you with ALL the details!! I will be happy to provide them to you if you contact me!!

I used Flourishes Lace Heart (just half the image) for the main image and front sentiment. The paper is both Basic Grey's Stella Ruby Collection and SU! Basic Grey cs. I used my Nestibilities for the front rectangle which the image was stamped on. I used SU! Craft white for the half heart and then embossed it with Ancient Gold ep. I used SU! scallop border punch for the top and dotted that and the main panel with my white gel pen. I then stamped the "xoxox" stamp from Fancy Flexible Phrases all around and in the center of the heart on the Chapstick jar. For the Chapstick jar: I used Paper Studio scallop punch for the top which I then placed my cut out heart from MFT's Bling 'bers set. I embellished that with some self adhesive crystals. The inside sentiment is from Lizzie Anne Designs and I finished the inside with a strip punched out using my Fiskars water threading punch and matching ribbon from the front.

This was a fun project to just play around with and look forward to giving this out for Valentines Day! I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!
