[VIDEO] Valentine's Day Card feat Valentine Animals and Hearths and Arrows Background Stamps
For the background of the card I used Distress Oxides and a very easy and super fast technique to create an ombré watercolor effect - make sure to watch the video below to check it out! I used Festive Berries, Work Lipstick and Spun Sugar on Ranger Watercolor Cardstock. I then used the same colors to create a stamped pattern on the background with the Hearts and Arrows background stamp.
As an additional background element I die cut some white cardstock with the Quad Collage
die, and I then moved on to color my images. For today's card I chose the newly released Valentine Animals stamp set. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers. And here is a color chart for you to use a reference.
Once I was done coloring I die cut the images with the Valentine Animals Outline Dies
. For the sentiment I decided to do some heat embossing on brown cardstock. I used white embossing powder by WOW! and one of the sentiments in the Valentine Animals set. I used one of the dies in the Quad Collage Fun Cutters to die cut the sentiment banner.
At this point I had all my elements ready and I could go ahead and assemble my card. I adhered everything flat to my background with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and mounted it on a top-folding A2 card base. I decorated the inside of the card with some leftover images, you can see it in the video at the end of this post.
I love adding finishing touches to my cards, and for this one I added some details with a white Gelly Roll Pen, some shimmer with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen, and some gloss and dimension with Glossy Accents.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I created a video tutorial to show you how to create this sweet Valentine's day card with a Distress Oxide background. You can watch it down below or directly on the C.C. Designs YouTube channel
