You're the Sweetest/Nicole Martel

You're the Sweetest/Nicole Martel

Hello! I'm so excited to share my very first project I created for Brutus Monroe. I thought I'd go ahead and create a Valentines Day card for my little man. 

To begin, I used washi tape to hold down the metal die over patterned paper and ran it through my Sizzix machine.

Next, I glued the pieces together and added a gem to the center of the candy wrapper.

Next, I sprayed the Blue Violet Chroma Mist onto a plastic baggie and smeared the ink around a bit by rubbing the plastic together. Once I was satisfied with the placement of the ink, I placed a 4.25x5.5 piece of the Aqua Pigment Watercolor Paper over the ink to create a fun mixed media background for the card.

I used my paper trimmer to cut the paper down a little bit to fit within a 3x4 card base.

I stamped the little boy from the Life is Sweet stamp using the Raven Ink onto a piece of Perfect Blend Alcohol Marker Cardstock. This cardstock holds the colors so beautifully. 

I stamped the "You're the Sweetest" sentiment onto cardstock using embossing ink. Then I covered the sentiment with the Gilded Embossing Powder and applied heat to the powder to melt the powder. 

To me, the Gilded Powder looked loss within the card with the other colors so I decided to use the Raven Embossing Powder on another scrap piece of paper to use as a banner for the bottom and liked the way this looked better.

Products Used: Brut9067, Brut2648, Brut4013, Brut4447 Raven Embossing Powder, Chroma Mist (Candy Apple, Blue Violet), Embossing Ink, Raven Ink and Glue

What do you think? Isn't this card the cutest! I can't wait to share my other projects with you this month! Thank you so much for visiting today!
