Sweet Love Revisited

Welcome to the February Papertrey Senior Team post. Today we are revisiting Sweet Love, a classic stamp set full of timeless elements and nice sentiments suitable for weddings, anniversaries, Valentine's Day and more.

For today, I created some cards and coordinating candies for my reds. If I don't end up eating all the wrapped nuggets first, I think this little tray of treats will be a nice surprise for the girls after school one day. ;)
The cards came together so easily because the ovals and circles are so easy to die cut with Nestabilities dies..or you could use punches too. The pretty colors seem to just pop right off the white background. I used the Sunshine Impression Plate on my white cardstock. So subtle but the impression is definitely visible. The cute butterflies were die cut from the Love Lives Here Collection. I love all the Papertrey dies...so easy to add little accents here and there. A few staples and some Raspberry Rhinestones finish off the pretty butterflies. The sentiments on top of the oval images were stamped on some rectangular labels from the Mat Stack 3 Collection. Loving those.
To fancy up the bottom of my cards, I used the Edgers #1 die collection on the white cardstock. To get your edge to stay put in the die, I suggest placing a piece of clear tape on edge of paper that will be discarded. This keeps the paper in place while going through your die cut machine. Some snippets of patterned paper, some machine stitching and pretty ribbons in Aqua Mist and Berry Sorbet finish off the cards.
Moving on the candies, I used Papertrey's White Mailing Labels and some of the stamps from Sweet Love to create some nugget labels that match my cards. There are two stamps as you can see that were designed to fit on the labels. There are several small words that can be stamped inside the little oval on the label image too. I used *friends* and *xoxo*.
Once you've stamped all the labels needed, simple peel off the labels and wrap them around Hershey's nuggets. These make adorable little candy favors...would be so cute for teacher treats, weddings or baby showers too.
A sweet little set of goodies for my lovable little reds.
