"...I love you" card and gift box set

Hello Crafty Friends!

Last week I shared a project using the beautiful Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish.  This weekend I played in the craft room with polish's sparkly cousin: Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Kiss.  Like the polish, the Glitter Kiss is packaged with its own applicator.  (The applicator means cleaner hands and the lid provides applicator storage.)

I tried the Glitter Kiss several ways: applying over the entirety of a piece of card stock, die cutting "kissed" card stock (no issues or touch up needed), through a stencil and using a small paint brush to apply on small areas.  One thing I did not know was how to correctly apply it over a large area with the applicator.  The best way to apply over a large area is to swipe the applicator onto the paper in one direction, turn 90 degrees and swipe, turn 90 then swipe and 90 then swipe.  It sounds like a lot of time but the results are worth it.  And the Glitter Kiss dries quickly, too.

The first project made with the Glitter Kiss was a glittery heart favor box.  This sweet favor box is a great gift idea or favor box for a Valentine's Day gift, a wedding or anniversary celebration.  After the favor box was completed, I created a matching card.

(All product used is listed at the end of the post.)

Favor Box Instructions:
  1. Die cut patterned paper using gift favor die.  Two required.  Apply gold marker along edges.
  2. Use heart spray stencil and apply Glitter Kiss.  (It is best to secure stencil with washi tape to prevent stencil from sliding.)
  3. Die cut patterned paper using box die from gift favor die set.
  4. Assemble box.  (here is a video tutorial for assembly)
  5. Stamp sentiment onto coordinating paper using red archival ink.  Clean stamp and tap Glitter Kiss onto stamp.  Re-stamp sentiment.  After drying die cut with tag die and apply gold marker along edges.
  6. Apply Glitter Kiss to card stock (red is best) and die cut using key die.  
  7. Create bow and add gold twine to hang the tag and key.
  8. Apply Glitter Kiss to red card stock.  Die cut using heart lace die.  Adhere to back of favor box.  (Keep the wee heart die cut from the center to use on the card front.)
The favor box is so cute- whoever receives it will adore it!

Next is the matching card.  It has several layers of die cuts and beautiful calligraphy stamps from Suzanne Cannon of Quietfire Design.

Card Instructions:

  1. Die cut red card stock twice using Ornamental Crest Die.  Apply Glitter Kiss to the front of one die cut.  After drying, adhere to front of plain die cut using liquid adhesive.
  2. Create support for card using red card stock.
  3. Die cut gold card stock using lace heart die.
  4. Apply Glitter Kiss to red card stock and die cut using classic heart die.
  5. Stamp both text stamps onto patterned paper.  Die cut the largest text using smallest die in the Ornamental Crest set.  (Save the outer frame as the background beneath the hearts.) Cut the "I love you" into a rectangle.  Apply gold marker along edges.
  6. Assemble all die cuts from step 5 onto card front.
  7. Create double bow and adhere to front.
I do hope you enjoyed the favor box and coordinating card!  I really like how the set shimmers with the beautiful red Glitter Kiss.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a happy, crafty day!

    1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: {} you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.
