I am behind in posting some of my Paper Pumpkin projects.  Here is one that was meant for Christmas.  The other side of the big Tag says “Noel”.  Since I just made these cards Saturday, I did not keep with the Christmas theme and used some of my other stamps and tools.  There were plenty of Dimensionals included in the Kit for me to be my usual “Dimensional Queen” self!  I will let you know above each card the extra things I used that were not in the Kit.  Yes, the little stars came stitched together already.  A Real Red Stampin’ Spot (1″ ink pad) came with the Kit.  I did use Glue Dots to attach a few of the stars in each strand.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut Your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
*2.  Watch the Video below for this step.  Cut your Cherry Cobbler card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive sheet the same size. Peel off the words on the Adhesive Sheet and adhere it to your Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Run though your Big Shot using this sandwich:  Magnetic OR Multipurpose Platform (all tabs closed), cutting plate, card stock with adhesive side touching cutting plate, Wax Paper, Hexagon Hive Thinlit, and your top cutting plate.  Poke out the hexagons that are cut.  Not all of them will come out-they are not supposed to!  Set aside the hexagon stickers for another project.  Peel off the adhesive backing and adhere to your card front.
3.  Stamp your Banner Blast Hearts in Real Red ink inside each full hexagon.  Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig if you want them perfectly placed, or just try to stamp in the center like I did.
4.  Stamp your “Love” and “When I thing of YOU I can’t STOP SMILING” sentiments in Real Red in on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out the “SMILING” sentiment with the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelit.  Hand cut your “Love” .  Put Dimensionals on the back of both sentiments.
5.  Cut your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart out with the desired size Heart Framelit.  I used the third one from the center.  Use your Small Heart Punch to punch out your Red Glimmer Paper Heart.  Put Dimensionals on the back of both Hearts.
6.  Position the “LOVE” and Small Red Glimmer Paper Heart on top of the Silver Glimmer Paper Heart.  Adhere in the desired positions with the Dimensionals.  Position your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart and your “Smiling” sentiment in the desired positions on your card front.  Adhere.
7.  You can use some of the Hexagon Stickers you made to decorate the corners inside your card and on the outside of your envelope.  I have not yet tested to see how well they make it through the mail on the outside of an envelope.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
