Hello everyone! Are you well?
Love day is nearly here so I made a card for the occasion.
Honestly, I don't celebrate Valentines but it's all a bit of fun right?
I'll show you how I made this fun card.
I started by preparing a UK A6 top fold fold blank from 'White Super Smooth 300gsm' card.
Next, I cut my background panel from some 'Woodstock Cipria 285gsm' card.
The panel was 4 1/2in x 5 1/2in so I trimmed it down to fit my card front with a 3mm border around each edge.
I attached this to my card front using small dots of wet adhesive in between all the open areas of this panel.
The next step was to add the words.
I die cut my 'love' word 4 times out of 'Christmas Red 240gsm' card.
I lined them up on the panel to plan spacing to ensure all words / letters were spaced equally.
Once happy, I used my corner tool to ensure all letters were straight before adhering with wet adhesive.
To use this tool, place it in an L shape. Butt the left side against the left side of your card and line the base of your letters up against the bottom of the tool to get them perfectly straight.
I added some White highlight using my white gel pen.
Then to finish, I added a sentiment by stamping onto 'white super smooth 300gsm' card and attaching this to the card with foam tape.
This is it!
I do love a cheeky sentiment which I feel goes perfectly with the rest of this card.
until next time, take care.
Love, Dani xx
