Valentine's Day Heart Pouch

Today's post is my project for the Valentine's Day stamp camp I'm participating in this evening. I saw this project on Splitcoast, and you can find a tutorial from Barb Mullikin here.

I used my Big Shot and the Petal Card die to create this pouch. Basically, you cut two petal cards and use a 2"x6" piece of cardstock to secure the flaps and make the pouch. I also used my new Eyelet Border punch on the sides for a little extra flair.

I also used the Petal Card die to cut the Raspberry Tart designer paper for the front of the pouch. I cut a 4"x5" piece of dsp and placed it on the die so that it only covered the part of the card that would make the front of the pouch. I trimmed off the extra dsp on the score lines and glued it down - so easy! I was so glad not to have to trace anything!

The side view:

Here is the pouch actually hanging! I hope everyone at the stamp camp enjoys this project. I can't wait to see what the other demonstrators have come up with!
