Valentine’s Day is approaching faster than I care to think about. My kiddos already have their valentine’s for their classmates planned, but weren’t sure what to do for their teachers. I found the Thanks a Bushel stamp set and was inspired.
All three cards together
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by stamping and water coloring the apple baskets. I used Distress Inks as water colors for these images. Once the ink was dry, I fussy cut them out.
I die cut three cross stitched rectangles from water color paper. I used two shades of red Distress Ink to ink smoosh the backgrounds. I added some splatter with Black Soot Distress Ink for interest.
Once the backgrounds were dry, I stamped the small heart in red ink for added interest. Then, I added the sentiments in Versa Fine ink.
I made three card bases from gray card stock. Using a grey ink, I repeatedly stamped a sentiment on each card base. I changed the orientation on each card base just because I could.
I adhered the inked panels to the card bases and the cards were complete.
