Card Making: Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's Day!

One upside to our snow day last week was it gave me a chance to finish this year's Valentine's Day cards. Fortunately I'd already cut out my focal images using my Silhouette Cameo since the power was out. The rest didn't require any electricity!

My colors this year were black, cream and fuschia. 

Here are the papers and supplies I used: 
  • Black metallic Stardream cardstock 
  • Cream Cardstock
  • My  Minds Eye "From the Heart" gold foil heart paper
  • Craft Smith gold foiled paper 
  • Recollections gold mirror and fuschia glitter paper
  • Watercolor paper 
  • Watercolor paints 

I chose an image from the Silhouette Design Store and cut it from gold mirror cardstock. Waste not want not, this image resulted in a positive and negative so I had the hearts that were leftover from the middle of the framed image if that makes any sense, and used those as well. 

For the "framed hearts" as I'll call them, I mounted on cream cardstock, then the fuschia glitter paper. I cut a panel from the gold foiled heart paper ( 4x6) and mounted to the Stardream black card (5x7) and then mounted the focal as shown.



For the cards I made using the center hearts, I played around with some watercolors I picked up recently on a BOGO ( buy one get one free) at Aaron Brothers. Cone to think of it , the watercolor pad was from a previous Aaron Brothers BOGO. Spotting a trend? 


I just played around and made some background paper ( oh I added some gold mica inks): 


I trimmed this , mounted on black then gold paper and attached the gold mirror heart with a foam dot. 



I finished each style of card with gold sequins!

Hand Lettering Practice ... Happy Valentine's Day

Obviously it isn't. Truly portable PC utilize isn't very different from the standard desktop PC. You by and large have similar projects, and relying upon how much cash you've spent on them
