Valentine’s Day/Anniversary card
Hi Guys! Luisana here! I am back this week with another project.
It seems like Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, time surely is flying by! Are you guys ready with your cards and crafts for your special one? February brings two special days for us, Valentine’s Day and my wedding anniversary! So I made a card that I can use for both occasions.
I was so excited to play with this month’s stencil and glitterglaze of the month, and I wanted to make something cutesy but not too girly since I am giving this card to my husband. So, first things first...
I applied random micro drops of mono repositioning glue on one side of my stencil and let it dry completely. This makes my stencil stay put when I am using it, I can remove it, wash it and keep on reusing it over and over.
I used painters tape to mask off the parts I didn’t want the glitter glaze to touch and placed the stencil on top. Glazing was so easy! I applied a thin layer using a crafting spatula, I made sure it was evenly applied, and then removed the stencil, and most of the painters tape from my card stock. I taped it to the side of my desk and waited for it to dry.
In the meantime I stamped this cute heart chocolate box from Brutus Monroe Stamp of the Month club using my raven detail ink since I knew I was going to be using copic markers to color it, can I just say... raven detail ink is AMAZING!! If you haven’t tried anything from Brutus Monroe, please, pleeease give this ink a shot. I am still blown away by how well it performs... this ink just does NOT move once you stamp it.
Back to the card, I colored my chocolate box with copics and coloring pencils for the extra fine details and I fuzzy cut it so I can place it on my card once the glaze was dried.
I chose a sentiment from the Love Bug
stamp set and I will admit it... I messed it up, the “love” part of it was all wonky but I found a solution by stamping just the word in red ink and placing it on top of my boo boo. I think it turned out pretty cute!
Lastly, I wanted a pink base layer for my card and I didn’t have the exact color I wanted so I colored the edges of my card base with a copic marker and voila! I had the perfect color for my card.
Here is the final result, I added a few nuvo pink drops to the white areas of the card to bring everything together.
I really enjoyed making this card. I can’t wait to give it to my husband in a couple of weeks.
Here’s a little Valentine’s day fact you may not know:
Thank you so much for stopping by. I will see you again very soon.
