Good morning! It’s Lisa up on the blog today and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner I’ve been busy creating my favorite types of cards. I love all things heart related so this holiday is one of my favorites. I’ve always been drawn to the more feminine and frilly style of cardmaking. My card today was inspired by a card I saw Laura Bassen make while I was scrolling through Instagram. I am in love with the Floral Heart Die from Kat Scrappiness and for today’s card I die cut about 6 of them out of heavy white card stock and layered them on top of each other with Nuvo Liquid Adhesive. I just love that added dimension it gives to the focal point.
I just love that look you get when you layer dies on each other.
It gives so much dimension to your card.
For the background of the card I cut out a panel of Bristol Smooth card stock with the largest Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Die and did some ink blending with these 3 Distress Oxide Inks:
I added some paint splatters over the panel with the same colors
plus some white paint for added interest.
I used the I Love You Shadow Dies for the simple sentiment on top of the heart. I cut the word “Love” out using silver foil card stock and I used vellum for the shadow die backing. I love using vellum on my projects because I think it adds a very elegant look to my projects. For some extra shine and fun I added Silver Jewels all around the heart to match the silver foil card stock.
To finish off my card I tied a bow using some Lawn Fawn Silver Sparkle cord with a glue dot.
Here is one more look at my card with all of the dies I used on the card. I really love how this card turned out. The ink blended background just makes me happy. I love how all the colors blend into each other to make new colors.
