Happy Valentines Day !

Wishing all you lovers out there a Happy Valentines Day ! Here is a card I made for mine. I wanted to make a slightly different overall effect and used a couple of the Elusive Images stamps that I thought fitted the day.

What I used:

  • Pearlescent Card (Pastel Pink cut to 8.25 x 3.25 inches)
  • Card (Petrol Blue for mat & sentiment)
  • Pearl paper (blue/pink for second mat)
  • Moonglow Glitz Spritz ( Desert Moon Endless Sky, Royal Crimson Fire)
  • Moonglow Embossing Powders ( Cosmic Pink Blue, Midnight Ruby Obsidian)
  • Mylar stencil (flower shape)
  • Stamps (Filigree Heart and 'With Love' - Elusive Images)
  • Versamark Inkpad
  • Brilliance Inkpad (Pearlescent Sky Blue)
  • Double sided tape
  • Foam pads

The card was cut and folded using a bone folder. The heart stamp was inked up with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink and randomly stamped over the front of the card, this was heat set with the heat gun.

The first mat was cut out of petrol blue card and sprayed liberally with the Desert Moon Endless Sky Glitz Spritz and allowed to dry naturally. The stencil was placed over the card in two places and this was heavily sprayed with the Royal Crimson Fire Glitz Spritz. The stencil was carefully removed and the spray was allowed to dry.

The heart stamp was inked with Versamark Ink and stamped as shown on the mat then heat embossed with the Cosmic Pink Shimmer Moonglow EP. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark onto a scrap of the petrol blue card and this time heat embossed with Midnight Ruby Obsidian Moonglow EP. This was trimmed with scissors and foam pads were applied to the reverse.

A second mat was cut to allow 1/8th inch border and the first mat applied over this. The card was then assembled and finally finished with the sentiment applied as shown.

Hope you like it :-)
