I’ve not had much chance to post anything for the past few days (which is a good thing because it means I’ve been busy!)
Today’s card is actually a Valentine’s Day card for the Boyf that I made last night (a bit last minute but there you go) but since there are a lot of card challenges out there with ‘Love’ as the theme I thought I might as well post the card to those too 🙂
I went to town a bit with this one (since it’s for me fella!) and used plain white cardstock with a pre-cut edge.
I added a layer with red card (you can’t have Valentine’s without RED). I’m loving the new My Favourite Things “I’m Owl Yours” stamp set – the owls are dead cute! So I picked a couple of owls to use as my couple and stamped them onto some white cardstock in various positions. I had to cut out a ‘mask’ for one of them so I could stamp them together. I also covered the eyes with washi tape when I inked the stamps so that I could have them looking in different directions.
I coloured the owls in with Promarkers.
I used the Polaroid die to trace the inner square onto a plain piece of paper three times and then used some Distress Inks and a Dewdrop ink to create a night sky background for each ‘snap’. I fussy cut the owls that I’d done and stuck them onto the backgrounds.
I used double-sided tape to stick the ‘photos’ to the layered card base then cut out the Polaroid frames using a die onto plain white card. I made sure that I’d positioned everything properly before I actually stuck them down.
I used a sentiment from the same stamp set and heat embossed it onto black card using white powder.
I used the hearts and arrows from the same stamp set and sporadically stamped around the card.
I decided that the border around the red card would look better with a colour so I used a Spectrum Aqua pen and water-filled pen to watercolour the border.
Finally I stuck on the embossed sentiment using 3D foam pads and I used my Wink of Stella pen to put a bit of sparkle in the eyes! (It’s hard to see properly on my picture)
So this is my card!
