Hi friends! Happy Monday! Please join me in a warm welcome back to special guest designer Mindy Eggen to our blog! She’s created this gorgeous Love card to inspire you today! Read on to learn all the details and enjoy!
Hi crafty friends! I’m so excited to be on the Simon Says Stamp blog to share a project with you today. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I thought a Valentine card would be a good one to share but keep in mind this card could be sent any time of the year or even for anniversaries.
I have this beautiful Heart Flourish cover die from Hero Arts that I thought would look great with an ink blended background. The inks I used were Honeysuckle, Marmalade, Buttercup, Parsley, Oceanside and Orchid. I applied the ink to the outer edges of the Smooth White cardstock using flat blending brushes.
To add dimension to the card front, I die cut the Heart Flourish three times from White cardstock and layered together with my Connect glue that I have in a fine tip bottle. This really helps me get to those intricate areas the die cut out.
For the sentiment, I have this lovely word die from Concord & 9th. It comes from the Love Lines Die set. I knew it would fit perfectly inside of the heart on my card front.
This I cut twice from 110 lb White cardstock and once from Matte Gold cardstock and layered together. Then I could add it to the center of my heart for my focal point.
I could stop here with my card but I can’t resist adding some Clear Iridescent Drops to embellish. For this I like to use my Gina K Designs Pick N Stick Tool.
I love a good rainbow but there are so many color combinations that would look great with this too!
A fairly clean and simple card as far as supplies go but boy does it pack a punch!
Hope you enjoyed today’s card project and inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by today and thanks to Simon Says Stamp for inviting me. Hope you have an amazing day! -Mindy
