Kitty Love

Hello,

I made a valentine for a friend who goes back to seventh grade.  I wanted it to be similar to a child’s valentine, in that it doesn’t open and fold.  It turned out pretty cute.

Kitty Love Watermarked(2018-02-11-1935)

CARD BASE – 110# Neenah Crest Solar White Cardstock cut to 3-1/2  x  4-7/8 inchesDo not fold.

CARD FRONT

  • 140# Strathmore Watercolor Paper cut to 3-1/2  x  4-7/8 inches
  • kitty – Penny Black Every Which Way Stamp Set                                          1_34904_FS
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad
  • Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers – gray, pink, red, green (flower stem) 
  • water and a small brush

After the kitty stamp is colored, wet the rest of the paper with a brush and water (avoiding the kitty).  Scribble Zig markers on a craft sheet (yellow, blue, pink).  Spray the color just a little with water.  Paint the colors on the paper horizontally, overlapping the colors.  Let this dry, then stamp the rest.

  • Gina K Red Hot Ink Pad

 

  • sentiment – unidentified valentine stamp set purchased at Michael’s

  •  border of dashes – Pilot Precise V5 RT Black Pen

Tear around the edges of the front panel.  Go over the edges with the pink Zig marker.  Adhere the card front to the card base a strong adhesive.  I used 3/4 inch eBoot Double Sided Adhesive (amazon.com).

EMBELLISH

Go over the large heart with a Clear Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen.  Let this dry a few minutes.  Apply Christmas Red Stickles to the small hearts.  Apply Glossy Accents to the big heart.  Dry completely.

A simple card, but quite a few steps when you lay it all out.  Let this inspire you to make a valentine for someone you value.

Sincerely,

Tricia Ann
