Be Mine Valentine Pouch and 3 x 3 Cards

The Be Mine Valentine January Paper Pumpkin is so cute.  It makes 24 little treat pouches that would make anyone smile with happiness!

In an earlier post I shared two cards that I made using this kit and the Animal Expedition Suite from the Annual Catalog.  You can see that post here.  I thought those cards were really cute!

Today I have a cute little card holder and three 3 x 3 cards and envelopes.

The Whisper White 3 x 3 Envelopes are on page 193 of the Annual catalog.  But I was also able to make a cute little holder for the cards.

When I got ready to tell about the holder, I felt it was hard to explain in words that made sense.  So I have made a video to share with you.  It will explain how to make the holder, decorate the flaps of the envelopes, and cut and make each card.


For the cards, cut the short side of a piece of card stock at 6.  Now turn the paper and cut at 3.  You can get 3 cards from a sheet of paper.  Fold in half.  I've explained in the video, but here are pictures of each of the cards.

I used the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to decorate the flaps of the envelopes and the cards.  The stamp set included with the Paper Pumpkin is just so cute.  That's where the birds and the chameleon are from.  Color with Light and Dark Pool Party and Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends.  Cut around the animals and add to the cards.  The sentiments and enamel hearts are all part of the kit.
