Valentine’s day tomorrow! I wanted to make a card. But not a traditional pink and red coloured with hearts and cliched sentiment. I wanted a card which is non traditional and wild. So I browsed through my Simon Says Stamp collection to pick Wild Cuddly Critters stamp set, coordinating dies and Leafy Frame die to play with to make Valentine’s day card.
Hello lovelies, Welcome to my blog post. I am Gayatri. Today I am sharing with you a Wild valentine’s day card. Here is the full card.
I stamped the images from Wild Cuddly Critters stamp set using Simon’s Intense Black ink on Bristol smooth cardstock. Then coloured the images using Zig clean colour brush pens. Then die cut them all using coordinating dies
Then I sponged Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks on a Neenah Solar White panel. On another panel, I sponged Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch distress oxide inks. I sprinkled water on both the panels, blotted the excess and dried them. I used the Leafy Framed die to die cut the green panel. Then I added some shading details on the leaves using YG 17 copic marker.
I adhered this leafy frame die cut on the blue panel adding adhesive only on the edges of the leafy frame die cut. This leaves the leaves free so I could tuck in the Cuddly Critters all around. But first I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in the middle of the blue panel using Simon’s intense black ink. I used B24 and B05 to coloured inside the outline sentiment and shade. Then I tucked glued the cuddly critters around the Leafy Frame die cut. I adhered the hearts on top all around randomly. Thats it! The card is finished. Here are some more photos of the card.
I love how colourful this card turned out. Love all those critter eyes. Absolutely adorable. This is a different valentine’s day card, right? All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.
Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my blog. Have a lovely day!
