So the last few months have been challenging - moving house and settling in have taken far more of my time than I had anticipated. Crafting has had to take a back seat and to be honest - I lost my mojo and felt a bit intimidated when faced with a piece of card, ink and stamps! Yep I have been procrastinating! However, Telford was looming and I knew I had to make gifts for my downline (not to mention swaps) - so I had to get started. I had seen one my downline make a card using Perpetual Birthday Calander stamps as a background - so I decided to have a play. I'll say more about that another day - but eventually I came up with these little lovelies to swap. The idea was simple - but I think they turned out OK. Hope you like them! The little pocket holding the chocolate heart is really easy to make and looks good in multiple sizes. These started out as a 3 inch square of DSP. Fold the square diagonally and then with the folded edge on the bottom, fold the two sides of the triangle in to form the cup. Fold and stick the top flap down to hold the pocket together. I'll show you what it looks like on a finished card.
