Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Even though Valentine’s is over I wanted to keep with the love theme. You don’t need Valentine’s to send a card to your loved one. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Create a stencil by Diecutting the Leaf Pattern Background using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place it on top of a Cardstock trimmed to 3 1/2” x 6”. Using an ink tool apply ink over the stencil. I used a blending brush with Distress Oxide Ink in Peeled Paint. I went darker in the center and softer around the edges.
Step 3 – Diecut Koala using Kraft Cardstock for the tree trunk, Green Cardstock for the leaves, Grey Cardstock for the Koala, Pink Cardstock for the inner ears, Black Cardstock for the eyes and nose. Add some shading to the tree trunk using Distress Oxide Walnut Stain. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere to the card using Foam Tape. Using a permanent fine tip marker add the lines for the mouth.
Step 4 – Diecut Elephant using Red and Pink Cardstock for the hearts. Adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Stamp Bear Hug sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
This sweet card can be sent to anyone to let them know you sent them a hug. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
