Happy Valentine!

Welcome friends to another post where I have played with a bright color palette and with not so traditional valentine color. Yes its not red , pink or black. This card is made using Mudra Cut3 dies which were recently released.



To create this card die cut several pieces of the Gardenia set from plain white foam. Using distress ink or Archival ink you can shape the flowers and the leaves. Once colored hold it against a hot press at mild settings you will see the petals curling on its own. Its a natural process and we can choose to either keep it that way or tweezers it all the more to get the desired shape. Pierce the center to fill in the center stamen.To create the background I have used distress oxide and splash of water to create a mild cyan background. Once the background is created place all the leaves and flowers that are shaped. Stamped the sentiment " I love you" with archival black ink on a white card stock and clip with a small wooden clip. Stick the same on the center tucking in to the flower bouquet center.To finish the card add some splashes of white gesso and cyan distress ink.

Let me know your thoughts and how you liked it. I will soon be back with some more fun and creative projects.

Love XOXO
