Warning: today’s post is thoroughly Valentine’s themed…sorry if you’ve sworn off romance for this year 😉
I couldn’t resist this Lil Love Devil! After all, he needs a lot of red, our challege is live on Valentine’s Day and ….. he’s toooo cute! However, as I had already made a card for Valentine, I decided to use the image to make a little sweet treat holder for my husband!
To begin with, I printed and cut the image on the Silhouette, and then cut a sun shape from red mirror card to mount behind. I coloured the image using Pro-Markers, using a selection of Warm Greys to create the shading, then adding Ruby over the top. I chose a sun shape for the rear mat as it reminded me a little of flames….the perfect environment for this little devil!
Then I moved on to create the pillow gift box. Using a template from the Silhouette store, I used the Silhouette Studio software to replicate the image and fill the whole page with tiny little devils, which I then printed directly to the card I was cutting the template from. This is how it looks close up:
Once it was printed and cut, I popped it together with a little double sided tape, and attached the larger devil tag to the front of it. Finally, I filled it with chocolate hearts 🙂
I’m sure you have plenty of red or pink themed cards on your craft desk right now, why don’t you pop over and link up with our challenge!
I’d like to enter this chocolate gift box into the following challenges:
