Card A Day Blog Card, Valentine's Day

Hi everyone! The theme for this week at Card A Day Blog is, Valentine's Day.

Here is the card I created to share with you today. I fell in love with this tree, chock full of Valentine's ready to be picked. I got this beautiful digital stamp from, Priscilla Styles store. I just fell in love with it, and just had to have!

Here are the materials I used to make my card.

  • 8.5 x 5.5 inch piece of white card stock, folded in half for card base.
  • 5 1/8 x 4 1/8 inch piece of patterned paper.
  • Copic markers, R05, R20, R22, G14, E08, and E35 
  • Digital stamp from Priscilla Styles 
  • Spellbinders Die, Stamping Scrapping Frou Frou tags dies, and matching stamps,
  • Red card stock matt for image
  • Viva Decor Glitter Liner, Holo Indescent
To make my card, I first attached my background paper to my card base,  I then printed out my image on white card stock, approx 3.25 x 3.25. I colored the hearts with Copic markers, R05, R20, R22, blossoms, R20, leaves and grass, G14, and trunk of tree, E08, and E35. I attached my colored image to a piece of red card stock just a bit larger than my image to matt it. I then attached my matted image to my background paper. For my sentiment, I stamped my sentiment and frame from the stamp set, and cut out a tag for it, using one of the Stamping Scrapping Frou Frou tags dies. I then attached my tag to the bottom of my card. I wanted to add a little sparkle to the card, so I applied a little dab of Viva Decor Glitter Liner, Holo Indescent on random hearts throughout the tree, and spread it around thinly over the heart to create a shimmery appearance. I also added a dot of glitter liner to each side of the sentiment.

I will be sending this card off with the next batch of cards that I will be sending to Operation Write Home. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it.
