Valentine Candy Box

I recently attended a Valentine crafting class where we made the base for this little box. I took it home and embellished it with some fun layered florals and foliage (from Altenew's Rose Flurries 3D die set). I love this die set because it creates so many multi-layered roses and leaves.

To make the roses, I chose some scraps of pink and red card stock and die cut all the layers. I did the same for the leaves, again using scraps from my huge scrap collection! These dies are great for using snippets! 

I stamped the sentiment "with all my love" (from Altenew's Paint-A-Flower: waterlily dahlia stamp set) with Versamark ink on pink card stock and heat embossed it with rose gold embossing powder. It's hard to tell in the photos, but the pattern paper I used has gold accents.

For the inside of the box, I decorated the stamped heart die cut with additional roses and leaves from the Rose Flurries set. I did some surgery on some of the foliage pieces to make them fit the way I wanted 😁. 

Here's a look at the box when it's open. I added some Hershey's kisses and heart-shaped Reese's peanut butter cups:
