Hello everyone, this is a very quick post to wish you a Happy San Valentine’s day! and to share a very easy and simple card idea.
This is a last minute card I made for my husband today. I have to wait for him to arrive from work, then dinner, then children’s bath, now I can publish my post 🙂
I guess we all need love cards everyday…. as “love” is something that we should share daily!
To make this card I used 2 dies from Mandala Moments Dies collection from Tonic Studios they cut 2 layers of thick paper like butter. I used my Stampin’ Up! Big Shot to cut with these dies and I just passed the dies once through the machine to get a perfect cut.
Something I have to say is that this card was a bit difficult to photograph as the gold cardstock I used for the sentiment is literary like a mirror so I have to find a right angle to try and get the right colour in the pictures and not get my reflection on the sentiment!
The gold sentiment was die cut out of Craft Perfect Mirror Card by Tonic Studios. The colour is Harvest Gold.
Since Tonic sent me samples of this card in different striking colours I can’t stop die cutting words out of this high gloss cardstock! I love it.. it is something so very new to me.
I also visited Hobbycraft yesterday and I noticed that Daler Rowney sell a smooth card that comes in a stack of 20 sheets . It was next to the watercolour paper so I couldn’t resist and I bought a stack to give it a try.
It is ultra smooth and is 100% white (not ivory). The name of this cardstock is Bristol Board – Airbrush 250g and I used for the front panel. I’ll be stamping on it later to see what its performance.
The card base was made using thick Whisper White cardstock by Stampin’ Up!
That’s all! I hope you enjoy this project and do not hesitate to ask any question or leave a comment. I would love to heard from you.
