Hello Crafty Peeps!
I hope that you are doing well today. I have a sweet little valentines day card for your enjoyment. I am going to try and make this a short and to the point post so here goes.
Here's the card.
I made a center step card... Here is how I did it.
- Take a 5 ½ x 11” card stock
- one inch in from the side cut from from 1” to 6 ½” on both side
- score along the long side from the cut line at 1” 2” and 6 ½
- repeat on the other side
- score between the cut lines at 5 ½
- fold the card with the center as a mountain fold and the smaller folds are mountain valley
There are great tutorials on you tube if you need more help. It sounds complicated but it really is an easy folded card to make. Here is a side view of the card so you can see the folds
Ok so the Monkey stamp was from stampendous #ssc 160 but I think that it is discontinued I used Stazon jet black ink because I was going to be using water and i didn't want it to smear.
I used my inktense colored pencils to color the monkeys and then I used my round circle die to cut it out. I also used my nestablites scalloped circle to cut out the green border.
For the card I made a mat out of the same green paper the was 4 3/8” x 3 3/8”
The white mat measured 4 ¼ x 3 ¼
I then used a leaf stamp from the same stamp set and stamped a background using close to my heart pear ink and Topiary ink.
For the sides I used the same green and cut it at 4 ½ x ¾
I used an EK success heart punch and punched out 6 hearts out of pink glitter paper.
For the bottom I used 2 other stamps from the set and used the Pear ink from CTMH to stamp the swirl vine and the sentiment
Here are some more pics of the finished card. I know it is not traditional Valentines colors but I thought that it would be a perfect card for someone that I love.
Thanks for stopping by
I hope you all have a great day and a wonderful week. God Bless you all!
