The Kisses & Hugs Paper Pumpkin Kit contains unique, trifold heart-shaped cards to make your declarations of love stand out! The printed gold foil designs add a timeless touch to these cards that you might want to use year-round as this kit isn’t bound to just Valentine’s Day—it works for all love occasions like anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, or those “just because” days. You can also sweeten up your love cards with the Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes add-on! Wrap up some sweet treats in coordinating mini treat boxes alongside your Kisses & Hugs cards to share even more love.

SENDING YOU LOVE TREAT BAG

Send some love with this adorable treat bag! To create this bag, seal an envelope and trim off one end to 5" (12.7 cm) to create a pocket. Stamp the dots image repeatedly onto the envelope in Gray Granite ink to create a patterned background. Trim off a section of the striped heart to separate it from the card base, then attach to the envelope by lining up the straight edges together. Adhere a die-cut arrow to the center of the heart so the arrow’s point hangs off the edge of the envelope.

Layer a pink heart die cut, vellum heart die cut, and an outlined heart die cut and adhere together. Make small slits all around the vellum heart to create dimension and texture. Stamp sentiment onto the layered hearts in Gray Granite ink. Attach the layered hearts to the envelope, centering them on top of the striped heart. Embellish with iridescent sequins, then fill the pocket with treats and gift to someone you love!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY CARD

Use these simple techniques to upgrade your Valentine’s Day card! To begin, trim a sheet of Fresh Freesia cardstock to 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" (14 x 21 cm) and fold in half to create your card base. Cut out the front of an envelope from the kit to 5" x 3-3/4" (12.7 x 9.5 cm). Using the “XO” monogrammed pattern side of the envelope, color the bottom-third with the dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends marker. Color the middle-third with the light Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends marker, blending the edges of the light and dark ink together and leaving the top-third blank to create an ombre effect. Adhere this piece to the card base.

Trim Blushing Bride cardstock to 3-3/4" x 3-1/2" (9.5 x 8.9 cm) and stamp the Sweet Conversations Stamp Set’s heart image in a grid pattern onto it using Flirty Flamingo ink. Stamp the same heart image onto Basic White cardstock in Fresh Freesia ink three times, and fussy cut using Paper Snips Scissors. Adhere the Fresh Freesia hearts on top of three hearts on the Blushing Bride piece with dimensionals. Stamp a sentiment onto Basic White cardstock in Flirty Flamingo ink, then trim. Cut out a 2-7/8" x 1/2" (7.3 x 1.3 cm) piece out of gold metallic paper. Layer it behind the sentiment piece and adhere together. Adhere the sentiment piece to one of the Fresh Freesia hearts with Stampin’ Seal+. Attach the completed Blushing Bride piece to the center of the card base with dimensionals. Now you’ve got a wow-worthy Valentine’s Day card!

Supplies: Kisses & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set (included); Sweet Conversations Photopolymer Stamp Set; Kisses & Hugs printed envelope (included); Basic White, Blushing Bride, and Fresh Freesia Cardstock; Gold and Rose Gold 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Metallic Specialty Paper; Flirty Flamingo and Fresh Freesia Classic Stampin’ Pads; Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack; Paper Snips Scissors; dimensionals (included)

LOVE YOU BOX

Transform the Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes add-on to make more room for sweet treats with this Love You Box! Begin by assembling two Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes, but leave the bottom sides open. Adhere the open flaps of each box to one another with Stampin Seal+. Next, trim the Highland Heather sentiment paper from the Sweet Talk 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper to 7-1/4" x 2-1/4" (18.4 x 5.7 cm) and wrap it around the connected boxes to create a belly band. Make sure to close the end of the belly band with Stampin’ Seal+.

Using Highland Heather ink, stamp a sentiment onto the heart tag die cut underneath the heart image. Before you seal this box closed with ribbon, put some treats inside the boxes for someone special! Wrap Flirty Flamingo 1/4" (6.4 mm) Metallic Ribbon around the box and tie a generous bow. Punch a hole in the top of the tag and secure it to the existing bow using the kit’s gold twine and you’re done!
