Make a “Sending My Love” Card for your Valentine

2022-LeeAnn-January-700x700

By LeeAnn McKinney

– Hey there friends, LeeAnn here with a fun project that the idea will work any time of year, but this one especially is for Valentine’s Day. I did direct ink to paper, and blending Rose Bud, Love Letter and Angel Pink Memento Dye Ink in dew drop form.

I then ran the panel through my Big Shot with a die that embossed stitching into the background and made the perfect a2 cut around the panel. I then did direct to paper with VersaMark which I the poured Gold Mboss and then took my heat tool to melt it. After using my Big Shot to cut out the sentiment with the embossed panel and 3 layers of white, I cut the shadow layer out of vellum.

Then I used On Point Glue to adhere the layers together, and attached to the card panel, I used Tear It Tape to attach the panel with my card base. I followed that up with a few drops of On Point Glue to adhere some flat backed Gold Pearls to my panel and spritzed it with Sparkle Simmer Spray. With that this 20 minute video was complete (actually 6 video’s spliced together) I sped it up and cut the messy parts and you now have more time to enjoy the rest of your day. Thank you for watching, and I would love to see what you make that perhaps this project inspired you with.
