Hello there! It's Kristie Larsen here and I wanted to wish a Happy New Year to all of you! It's feeling good, the beginning of this 2016. I hope good things come to each of you as this year progresses. For today I wanted to share a quick Valentine card. A simple one and not too gushy but with a little sweetness thrown in.
I started with these three beautiful colours of Stardream Metallic card stock and die cut some confetti arrows and hearts. I also cut some hearts from vellum because I love the softness vellum gives. I put these aside for when my card was complete.
I next cut some card stock to make a 5x7 card base. I then stamped my tree image and inked a grassy hill with two different shades of ink.
I then coloured in my tree with some Copic markers. I used shades that would complement my confetti. I added one confetti heard to the bottom of my "squiggle" stamp.
After colouring I folded a vellum strip in half. The reason I did this was to give it a bit more strength but also the double layer helps hide the adhesive a bit better. And a BIG NOTE here: Tombo Mono adhesive is GREAT for using with vellum! I am so happy to know about it. I have used Glossy Accents in the past but it bleeds through and makes the vellum hard and kind of curls the vellum at the edge. Tombo Mono did a great job of blending in and adheres great. Love it!
I chose to use this A7 envelope from the Flavours Gourmet line. And let me just say, this is a GORGEOUS shade of grey.
And that's it! My first Valentine card of the season! Thanks for stopping in today. Be sure to check out the CutCardStock.com store today. There is a great deal going on for all A7 envelopes! You can stock up and give cards all year round in style!
Hope you have a great day.
