Cardz TV 3-D DT "Valentine's Day" Challenge

Hello my crafty friends!  Welcome to the Cardz TV 3-D Design Team Challenge!  Our challenge is to make a 3-D project for Valentine's Day.  Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE to make treat holders or 3-D items.  This project holds a full size Snickers bar.

For the Love sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Be My Valentine."  For the "You Make My Heart Sing!," I used the "Hugs and Kisses" set.  These two sets are full of wonderful sentiments for Valentines Day. I used a Stampin Up framelit called Starburst for the white behind the heart and embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder.  I punched a Full Heart punch for the the Love.  The cupids and dove were punched using Studio G punches.  The paper is from Recollections.

4 1/2 x 7 1/4 colored cardstock.  With the long side of the paper at the top of your score board, score at 3/4, 2, 2 3/4, 4.  Add adhesive just below the 3/4 inch score line.  Insert the Snickers bar, then press together making sure the edges line up.  Round the top corners.  Cut a piece of patterned paper that measures 2 5/16 x 4 3/8 for the top back panel.  Round the corners.  Next cut a piece of the same patterned paper at 1 1/8 x 4 3/8.  For the small front panel, cut a piece that's 5/8 x 4 3/8.

These are really quick to make and fun to give to a loved one, friend, or co-worker.  So are you ready to join us for the Challenge?  You have until Noon EST Thursday February 21st to enter.  All you have to do is make a 3-D project, enter it on Mary's blog.  She's giving away a set of her awesome stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Hope to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,
