This is the Valentine’s Card I made for my husband this year
The front of the card
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with a card base made from water color paper. Using a mini round ink blending tool, I ink blending three Distress Inks on the card front. I used Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, and Spun Sugar. I started with the darkest color and the top and tried to fade out to white at the bottom. I let the ink dry overnight.
Using Versa Mark Ink, I stamped and clear embossed a heart pattern on the ink blended card front. I used the small heart stamps from Lawn Fawn’s Science of Love Stamp set. After I had melted the embossing powder, I place a damp paper towel over the whole card front. I love the effect that the damp paper towel created.
While the card base dried again, I die cut a puffy cloud border from a scrap of water color paper. I stamped the sentiment and bird images on the cloud. I used the same Distress Inks to water color the bird images.
I added the rest of the sentiment to the inside of the card. Lastly, I adhered the cloud border to the card front once everything was dry.
