I’m back to share a sweet Valentine’s Day card using January’s Kit of the Month!
The Kit of the Month membership is wonderful because you get a HUGE set of red rubber stamps each month at a discount! If you’ve never experienced stamping with red rubber, you’re missing out! Red rubber creates the best stamping impression! And, you can come back to these stamps time after time to build your cards. It’s a great deal! For my card today, I’ve used the large floral bouquet from the kit.
I created a rectangle-shaped mask using masking paper and a rectangle die. I placed the outer part of the mask onto white cardstock and then ink blended in the middle in 3 shades of coral-red. Then I stamped the floral bouquet in black ink in the corner, with the sentiment to the upper right. When I removed the mask, I was left with a lovely frame of art!
Next step was to die cut the card panel about 1/4 inch into the panel, and then die cut 2 sheets of black cardstock. Then I adhered the layers together. The intention was to build the card in layers. You can see how I’ve achieved this in the photo above! This is a fun technique to add interest to your cards!
TIP: Having a set of nesting dies is best for this technique, but if you don’t have them, you can measure and cut with your paper trimmer!
The final step was to place the layers over the background, which I achieved by die cutting a Heart die plate on black cardstock and placing it over a 5.5×4.25 white card base. I didn’t realize until after I had adhered the focal point panel over the background that the hearts were sideways, but I went with it anyway! I finished by adding white dots over the flowers and shimmer using Gelly Roll pens!
