Valentine's Day Candy Cards

 I could not wait to make these Valentine's Day cards for my daughter and son's classes.  I had been dying to try out my new Create-a-Critter 2 cartridge, and I recently purchased my first set of My Craft Spot stamps.  These stamps came from the Build a Valentine set....LOVE IT!  It is great for boys and girls, and as you can see I couldn't just stick with one stamp.  I had to use a lot of them!!

For card:  Cut a 6 x 3 rectangle and score/fold at 3" to form a 3 x 3 card
Place white 2.75 square mat on front and inside right cover
after taping bakers twine underneath.
Create-a-Critter 2 cartridge-critters cut at 2" to 2.25"
My Craft Spot-Build a Valentine stamp set
small clear bags
Recollections card stock
bakers twine
For candy:  After filling bag with a small amount of candy, it was a little too wide for the card.  I folded it lengthwise a little more.  I then folded the top over the inside white mat (letting it stick to the ATG tape on the back side of the white mat) before gluing the mat down.  This allows the bag to be sealed behind the mat and hang down.

I'm entering these Valentine's cards in the following challenges:
