Hello there and Happy New Year’s eve! Maria Russell here on the blog with you sharing a cutesy valentine’s card, showcasing the Panda Play stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Down Main Street Border die, Rainy Day stencil, Die-licious 6×6 paper pad, Anytime Stack stamp set and Sentiment Stack die set.
To begin, I stamped the Pandas on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.
On another panel of Neenah Solar White card stock, I used the Rainy Day stencil and Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink to create the clouds.
Next, I die-cut the little houses using the Down Main Street Border die. I covered the holes with yellow card stock to create the illusion of lights coming through, and colored some of the parts with alcohol markers. I foam mounted this piece on the background for added dimension.
The stripe border is from the LDRS stamp packaging. I keep a few of these stripe borders in a ziplock so I can use them for my cards as accents here and there. I also added the black strip of card stock to ground the little houses. Next, I cut a strip of the beige card stock from the Die-licious 6×6 paper pad and adhered to the card using my ATG tape runner.
I foam-mounted the pandas for added dimension and covered the hearts with glossy accents for added texture and interest. I finished my design by adding the Anytime Stack stamp set and Sentiment Stack die set. Here’s another look at my card:
