~Cut from Whisper White cardstock: 2 large flowers and three small flowers using the Flower dies in the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits. Save the Whisper White cardstock you cut them from. 4. Back at your table….. Get your Stamp-a-ma-jig Imaging Sheet and T-Handle. Stamp the large flower in one corner and the small flower in another corner.
~Use a marker to color the Whisper White cardstock you cut the flowers from. Color around the cut out flower images. This will make it easier to see your White Flowers.

~Cut at 3″ x 4-3/4″.
~Score at 1/2″, 3/4″, 2-3/4″, 3″ 2. Attach two Glue Dots close to the 1/2″ score line on the lower flap and two Glue Dots towards the top back of the candy. Attach the candy to the lower flap first, then to the back. Fold top flap over and tuch inside the lower flap. 3. Decorate for the occasion. These are for Valentine’s Day. Stamp the Heart in Real Red Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then stamp one of the other sayings inside the heart. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me position my stamp inside. Cut out with the Heart Framelit. The Heart Framelin in the Mini Treat Bab Thinlits fits perfectly. The Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelit is close to perfect, but not the exact shape.

Punch a Heart from Red Glimmer Paper and attach it with Dimensionals. 5. Tie the ribbon around the card over the Real Red Hearts. 6. Attach your Top Note die to your card base using Dimensionals. I used 9 whole Dimensionals in 3 rows: along both edges and down the center. 7. You might want to put a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White on the inside of your card to write on. Stamp if desired.
I was watching a video (which I cannot find now) and dreamed about making a Pirate that moved for my grandsons Valentines Day cards. It worked! I also decided to make a sliding Heart Valentine for my granddaughters. Hope you enjoy making these. If it is after Valentine’s Day you can choose any stamp you can cut out (punch out, die cut, or use scissors) to make it slide. The video is just over 20 minutes long.
