Good morning! I have a new tutorial for you using the beautiful Silver Metallic Creative Medium. It is the perfect medium to add dimension to your cards, scrapbooks, journals or any paper craft! Today I am creating a Valentine’s Day card for you so let’s get started!
Skill Level: Medium
Time to Complete: 1.5 hour
Cut, score and fold a piece of red card stock to create an A2 top-folding card base. Die-cut a piece of white card stock using the scalloped rectangle from the Gina K Design’s Master Layout 4 die set. Cut a piece of black card stock to roughly 4.25” x 5.5”
Tape your stencil to the black card panel. Using and Imagine Crafts Spatula and the Silver Metallic Creative Medium, swipe the medium over the entire panel. Remove and clean your stencil and allow panel to dry. Once dry cut the panel to 3 3/8” x 4.5”.
Using the Lacy Layered Heart Die from Kat Scrappiness cut 2 white hearts, 1 red and use the solid heart die to cut a heart from black card stock. Now we will emboss one of the white hearts. Cover the heart with VersaMark watermark ink and then sprinkle with your choice of embossing powder. I used WOW Antique Silver Powder. After heat embossing I glued the two white panels together with On Point. The using Imagine Craft Mixed Media Brush I blended some Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink around the edges. Then offset the red heart and glue it on. This was then glued to the center of the black, solid heart.
From the same red card stock cut three of the word LOVE from the Kat Scrappiness I Love You Sentiment w/Shadow. I cut the shadow from vellum. I spritzed the word LOVE with Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray in Silver. Cut the I and the YOU from black card stock and the shadows from white. Glue these together.
I also cut a few hearts using the die from Concord & 9th’s Sweet Summer die set and the red card stock. I covered them with Glossy Accents and used them as embellishments. For assembly I glued the main heart towards the top of the stenciled panel. the words were glued directly to the heart. For any of the sentiment that hung over the edge, I added a small piece of foam tape. Foam tape was added to the entire panel and then adhered to the red card base.
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out this tutorial. I hope you have an amazing crafty day and a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
