Happy Friday everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog squeezing in one more Valentine card share before the big day! I love Valentine crafting and tend to over do it most years. But it’s all so cute and so fun!!! I just can’t help myself.
Today I have images from Take the Cake and One Smart Cookie. I love how these sets work together! I chose kind of a theme between the images, stamped them out and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Next, I stamped and heat embossed the coordinating sentiment for each image pair in white on black cardstock. I cut them all out with Large Sentiment Strip dies and adhered the feet of the images to the top of each strip.
Then I cut the Polka Hearts cover die from a textured teal card stock in my stash and inked up the edge with a darker teal ink for depth. Then I cut a piece of white glitter paper just a smidge smaller so they were easy to layer together. I used EZ Squeeze liquid glue to adhere them together and to a card base. (Tip: I find liquid glue works best with glitter paper and inked panels.)
Last, I added foam squares to all my images and popped them on the front of my card. Then I came in with white gel pen accents on all of them for some added texture and interest.
Finally I added glossy accents to all of those adorable hearts for some shine to go with our glittery background.
Isn’t this just so much fun! These images and sentiments are absolutely perfect to use singly but can be so fun to stack together for an added message too!
