Hi everyone, it's a new year for us at the Card A Day Blog. This weeks theme is Valentine's Day, and here is my entry.
To make my card, I had to decide on an image that I want to use, I chose to use a section from the Lovely Layering Collage stamp from Outlines Rubber Stamps. I stamped the image on white card stock, cut out the section I wanted to use, then colored it, using Copic marker colors RV10, R32, R29 and BG34. To frame my image, I cut out a piece with the Lacy Squares die from Spellbinders, with red card stock, the placed my colored image to the left side of the piece. On the right side of the die cut piece, I adhered a piece of ribbon from the January 2012 Really Reasonable Ribbon Club Assortment. I then attached the die cut piece to a piece of white card stock measuring 3.5" x 3.5", then added that to a piece of red card stock cut to approximately 3.75" x 3.75".
To finish up my card front, I cut a piece of red polka dot paper at 5.25" x 4" , then I placed my framed image to the top of the pattered paper. I then attached a strip of the shear red ribbon from the RRR assortment at approx 1/4 inch from the bottom of the patterned paper, then added a strip of red heart ribbon from American Crafts to the top of that. I then made myself a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, I then placed my card front to the front of the the card base.
This card was intended to go to Operation Write Home for Valentine's, but I missed the deadline, so I might just send it off with my next shipment, because since it doesn't say Valentine's Day, it can be used for a general love card, or maybe I might put it aside and send it out for next Valentine's Day.
