Learn How to Create a Layered Valentine’s Card with Cute Frame

by Kassy Tousignant

I just love using Imagine products with different finishes and textures together in a mixed media card.  The background of this Valentine card has shimmer from the Fireworks spray, dimension from the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher, and shine like no other from the Goosebumps spray!  Also, All Purpose Ink is fantastic for use on resin or clay shapes.  You can paint or spray it on for really great coverage.  The sparkle and shine from the embossing powder really makes the paper frame stand out!

Winter is right around the corner and I love when the snow covers the landscape! When I received the Frosted sampler pack of Rinea papers, I couldn’t resist making a winter card with a cute penguin stamp. I didn’t have white Creative Medium to make my snowflake background, so I mixed some All-Purpose Ink in the clear Creative Medium and achieved great results! I created a wintery background with Doodlestix, a Gelli Press, All-Purpose Inks, and Fireworks sprays from Imagine.
