While at Leadership, there was one Lolly on display that really caught my attention.  I just had to duplicate it once I was home.  Here's my C.A.S.E. of the one I saw on display.  The new over-sized half pearls really added the finishing touch.  I used the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set (125115-w; 125117-c) for the center of the Lolly.  And the new1/8" Organdy Ribbon in Calypso Coral added to the whimsy of this fun piece. This ribbon can be one of your FREE Sale-a-Bration selections with a $50 order.   It is part of the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack (127279).  Of course the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334) was used to make the this Lolly.  Two strips of 12" designer series paper were scored at 1/2" and joined together with the Sticky Strip. 

I thought it worked well with one of my recent card  posts and would make a fun, coordinated gift set this Valentine's day.

While I was busy making the Lolly, I also glanced over at another of my recent cards and decided to make a treat holder that matched it.  Here's the treat holder.

The treat holder is made using the Sizzix Pillow Box Die (113446) and the Big Shot.  I also used the P.S. I love you stamp set for the images and tag.  I punched a strip of Real Red Glitter paper with the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402) and used the Jewelry tag punch (117190) on the "I love you" tag.  The ends of the pillow box are held in place with 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon.  Both the card and the Treat Holder were run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.

And here the card and the treat holder together.  I tried several camera settings and worked with the brightness and contrast settings to show you the details, but I couldn't seem to capture the design from the Perfect Details Texturz Plate. The cardstock is River Rock, but by the time the photo was dark enough to show the details of the Texturz plate, the color was much darker than River Rock.

I'm doing a Valentine's Card Buffet Class this week-end and all of these designs are part of the class.  Check out my class, if you are in the Houston area!  Register here:  http://www.meetup.com/NW-Houston-F-M-1960-Spring-CardMakers/
