Create a Valentines’ day card with a mixed media feel and matching washi tape that you make yourself in a few easy steps using your Imagine Craft Mat. Add interest with inks and textures layered to create interest.
Time: 1 hour
Spray a piece of white cardstock with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Lady Bug and leave to dry.
Use the direct-to-paper method and ink the remainder of the pane using Lady Bug and Lilac Posies Memento DewDrop inkpads.
Use sponge daubers with ink to create a bokeh effect to the background. First, add red inked circles using Memento Luxe in Love Letter and then add white Brilliance circles over the top and slightly off-set for a fun effect.
To create your own matching washi tape, adhere a strip of masking tape to your Craft Mat.
Use Memento DewDrop ink pads to add color to the masking tape strip.
Use VersaFine Clair in Morning Mist and a texture stamp to add script stamping to the tape. Leave the ink to dry before adhering the tape to your card.
Carefully peel the masking tape off of your Craft Mat and adhere the washi tape to your card panel.
Emboss the panel using a love-themed or Valentine’s Day themed embossing folder. Add a layered die-cut heart with a silver leafed heart on top. Finish off your card with ink splats and diamanté for a mixed media look and feel.
