Welcome back to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have a card & gift to share with you. I used the Everything Festive Stamp Set with the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper to create this Valentine card and Hershey Nugget treat box.
This card could be used for anytime of the year to let someone know you love them.
The designer series paper and gold shimmer ribbon I used are part of the Christmastime is Here Suite which is only available this month (while supplies last). Here’s the details if you would like to make this card:
Materials & Measurements
- Cherry Cobbler: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for card base
- Gold Foil: 2 1/4 x 4 1/4, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap, scraps to cut hearts from Stitched Be Mine Dies
- Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 2 x 4 1/4, 3 x 4, 2 x 6
- Whisper White: 2 x 3 1/2 to stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut with Stitched Nested Die, 4 x 5 1/4 for inside card
- Gold Glimmer Ribbon: ~10 inches to wrap around DSP layer and tie a simple knot
You can use this card “formula” with other DSP and sentiments for any occasion. The ribbon layer and sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I love to give cards and little gifts that coordinate. Here’s a simple Hershey Nugget Treat Box made from a 6 x 6 piece of Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The Gold Foil Hearts are cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies and added with Glue Dots. I followed Julie DiMatteo’s Video Tutorial for the Hinged-Lid Box.
Materials & Measurements
- Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP – 6″ x 6″
- First cut off a 2″ x 6″ piece and cut that into 4 – 1″ x 3″ pieces for the Hershey’s Nugget wraps
- Then, with the remaining 4″ x 6″ piece, cut of 1/8″ from the 6″ side so you have a 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece
- Score all 4 sides of the 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece at 5/8″
- Then, along the 5-7/8″, score at 2-5/8″ and 3-1/4″
Fold and burnish along the score lines. Cut and notch the score lines on the long sides as shown below.
Add adhesive to the notched tabs, fold and tuck to assemble the box. Use the 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut a notch on the top of the box.
Wrap the Hershey Nuggets with 1 x 3 DSP strips. (*I used Glue Dots on each end of the DSP.) Here’s what the box looks like when you open it.
You can make this simple treat box for any occasion! What a “sweet” little treat to make for those you love!

Beautiful as usual. Thank you for sharing.
How pretty ! Plus I like the Hershey Nugget box idea ! Thanx Jeanie and Julie . Those little gold hearts are so cute ! Oh boy, I have another project !
Beautiful!! Love your cards.
I am having a great(?) time fussy cutting the roses out. I love this paper. I think I am going to have to break down and order the bundle and another pack of the paper. All are truly beautiful. I love your card and the nugget holder is just too cute too with the little hearts on there. A great use of the DSP on the card – the strip part.
I’m with Chris. I already have this bundle, but I guarantee I need another couple packs of the paper. I don’t think I have ever used every single scrap of a pack of DSP before. I am on my second order and I know I’ll use this up also. Round 3!
Love the nugget box. Just the right size for a token gift for anyone, regardless of the holiday or occasion. TFS.
Hope you share some photos from Hartford. I’m sure you had a blast. And, I can’t wait to see the inside of the catalog!
Hi Jeanie, I too was in Hartford for the OnStage this weekend. I just want to thank you for your ABC’s ideas as I plan on challenging myself with my workshops for 2020 using my ABC’s ideas…
