Hello! I am still in that Valentine mood. How about you? I think that this card could be given to someone who just has a sweet tooth also.
I am really enjoying Pretty Pink Posh's Valentine's release. I made a card a couple days ago where I put the XOXO Heart Border at the bottom of the card, so this time, I am going to put it up into the body.
I have used the new Layered Heart Lattice Stencils with Kitsch Flamingo and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide. I watered down both colors and speckled my paper to tone down the harshness of the white. I am going to cut that to 5.5"x 4.25". Because I used a die with a decorative edge, I will then cut it again, so I have a piece, 5.5"x 2.375 and one 5.5"x 1".
I will cut my card base, 5.5" x 6.625". You will still score it 4.25" from one end. I am also going to cut a piece of cardstock 5.5"x1" to cover where I will be attaching the acetate.
I will place strong glue tape on the cut edges of my patterned paper and apply a piece of acetate cut to 5.5"x125" in between the two making a window to place the XOXO Heart Border. I will center and glue that border on trimming the excess from each side. I will then glue my patterned paper to the short side of the cardstock base and use the smaller cardstock piece to cover the acetate and a glue strip on the lower part of the card.
I have cut some lighter pink hearts using the heart die that comes with the XOXO Heart Border Die and glued them on to add some contrast.
***I have a video on YouTube that makes this whole a lot clearer and easier to follow!
Now it's time to color. I have stamped all of the chocolates from the Sweet Chocolates Stamp Set. I wanted all of my candy pieces to be chocolate, so I am using browns.
I have used Copic Markers in the following colors to match my paper.
R24, R29, R83, R85
E11, E13, E15, E31, E33, E35, E23, E25, E27, E29
I highlighted all the chocolates and hearts with a white gel pen instead of using glitter for this card.
I adhered some hearts from the new Heart Cover Plate Die, on the upper part of the card to add some color and interest. I then popped up the chocolates and hearts and sprinkled them across the card.
I used the sentiments from the stamp set. I heat embossed those with embossing powder but I have no idea the name of brand but was absolutely delighted that it matched so well.
I think that this card is just delightful and I hope you do also. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that you are having a "sweet" day!
