Valentine's Day is just round the corner, and one of the cards I designed for our Team Meeting last month naturally had to include a Valentine project!
Remember the reverse masking technique I did in a previous post? If you missed it, you can see it HERE. I used the Parisian Beauty bundle again and the same masking technique in Flirty Flamingo so that it would coordinate with the colours in the "From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Without removing the mask, you stamp the phrase three times without re-inking as you move up the torn aperture in Gray Granite ink. Remove the mask in order to do the rest of the stamping - I stamped off once to create a lighter shade.
I used the simple heart shape punch in the heart punch pack to punch out a Flirty Flamingo heart from the DSP which has a glossy finish on some of the sheets. To ensure good ink coverage, I created a template from Whisper White card stock and set up the "from my Heart to yours" photopolymer stamp from the Heartfelt Bundle to stamp with the Stamparatus. The scroll was cut in half and attached to the back of heart with glue dots.
The silver die cut Eiffel Tower was adhered next, before I adhered the Heart with dimensionals to the card front as shown. I stamped the Fleur de Lis at full strength, die cut and adhered it with dimensionals to one side with the other resting on top of the heart.
From the Flirty Flamingo 5-5/8" x 3-7/8" (14.3 cm x 9.8 cm) layer, I die cut the scroll from the middle and re-used the cardstock as a mat layer for the Whisper White layer which measures 5-1/2" x 3-3/4" (14 cm x 9.5 cm).For the inside of the card, just some simple stamping in Gray Granite.
In the supply list below, there are links to the bundles, and the stamps and dies/punches have also been itemised separately so you can cherry pick what you wish.
Personally, I love the bundles as it saves money if you want both the stamp set and dies, or punches and during Sale-a-bration, you get to earn or choose something for free from the brochure!
