CSS Release in Review Day 3-I'd Melt for You

The Collection 6 Release in Review week continues at Clear and Simple Stamps. Today, I’m sharing a new take on the new Party Favor 7 die. There are so many things that can fit inside this box!

The card uses the snowman image from the Cart Pals: Occasions set. The image is stamped on CSS’s White Pearl cardstock and colored a bit with Copic markers, then set on a light blue panel along with a snowbank die cut with cloud border die from the Clouds Combo set. I anchored the snowbank with some heart patterned decorative tape, then stamped the “I’d melt for you” sentiment just beneath it. A stamped red heart from the Hearts Plus stamp set finishes off the scene. I edged the panel with a strip of red cardstock, then set it on white card base.

The Party Favor 7 box is assembled with the same color scheme. I used light blue cardstock to make the box, then added some of the heart washi tape as an accent. I used the one of the Mini Label Tags dies to cut a tag and attached the stamped tag to the box with some red satin ribbon and a bit of silver cord. The box is filled with 4 tealight candles, each wrapped in the heart patterned washi tape.

For more inspiration, don’t miss what the other CSS designers have created using stamps and dies from the Collection 6 release. Here’s where to find them:
