Clear and Simple Stamps | Valentine Victory

Clear and Simple Stamps | Valentine Victory

Football crafting is not just for Superbowl Sunday, it’s also great for creating sporty Valentines! Add a bit of bright and cheerful fun to Valentine’s Day for your football fanatics. We chose a trio of non-traditional colors to create a fresh and vibrant look for our valentine ensemble, down to the color coordinated gumball candies.

The Party Favor 15 is the perfect treat box to make your valentine interactive. Flip open the top flap to reveal a message to your valentine, and tuck sweet treats inside.

We stamped the front of the flap with the subway print from Party Elements: Tailgate in Golden Tiara Ink, and added a sweet heart image below. All that is left to do is fill the favor boxes with candy sweets. You could easily switch out the contents of the favors to include a deflated mini blow up football for Patriot fans. (We couldn’t resist a little deflate-gate humor).

We paired our valentine with a bold A4 Paint the Town Pink envelope, lined with a brightly striped patterned paper die cut using the A4 Envie Liner die. (If you don’t already have the Liner dies in your stash, this should be on your Valentine’s Day Wish List! It is a must have to dress up any card or invitation.)

Take advantage of half time today and start creating football inspired valentines. You are sure to score big with these bold and bright football treats…
